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.

From cask. Pours orange amber with off white head. Aroma has some hops and fruitiness. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, citrus, malty, slightly hoppy. Aftertaste is bitter, soft carbonation. IPA with no distinct flavour, easy going, bit flat. More like a Pale Ale.

Idiosynkrasie (3924) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
330ml bottle. Crystal clear amber colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Cautious hoppy aroma with unspecific fruitiness, red berries at most, maybe watermelon and pineapple in homoeopathic application rate. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, dry hoppy overtones with hints of pineapple, pine, a very cautious touch of lemon zest; dry, minimally woody and chalky finish. Harmonious, well-behaved, an IPA for wussies.
