COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 330ml bottles.
This balanced but powerfully hoppy India Pale Ale is brewed using the finest pale ale malt and three complimentary hops. We use Goldings - the traditional, fresh, sweet, delicate king of English hops. Then we add Bramling Cross, a spicy blackcurranty beauty and finish with a touch of extremely clean fresh Citra hop, for quenching zestines. We think that in balancing these 3 exciting hops we have created a beer of great power yet drinkable harmony.

Beer4000 (4313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a light off-white head. Mild but nice aroma of malt and citric fruit. Flavor is mild as well, soft, sweet light malt with a rather discreet fruitiness and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. I choose to ignore the fact that this is supposed to be an IPA, as otherwise this is actually a quite nice, clean British style session beer. Nothing extraordinary rally, but tasty and balanced in a modest way with no off flavors.

yngwie (12609) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head of moderate size. Some lacings. The aroma is weak, with a light fruityness. Not much malts to be detected. The flavor has some bitterness, a faint touch of toffee, and a biscuity maltyness. Medium body, quite dry, with a decent carbonation level. Bitter finish. Pretty boring this one, not much IPA-ish. 140110

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle, pours amber, nose of citrus fruits, orange a hint of grass and floral notes. Malty sweetness with a touch of hoppy bitterness, the smell is better than the taste which is a real pity.

Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry malt - sweetish and slightly lagerish. Whispers of spice and lactose. Hops are somewhat in the background but there is a little mellow tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a light spice. Not really an IPA but not a bad beer.

Bottle. Hazy light orange with a brief fizzy head. Aroma is quince and lightly sweet malt. Flavour of fruity caramel, apples and wet straw. Low bitterness. My God, how old is this I wonder?
