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.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
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 (3848) - 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.

330 ml bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a white small head. Aroma of caramel malts, English hops and some grainy notes. Flavour of caramel malts, some honey, mild citrusy notes, grassy bitterness and gooseberries. Some metallic notes as well. Harsh mouthfeel. A sweet and malty IPA. Very British.

03-JUL-2014, @draft Union Jacks (Jamie Oliver) in Covent Garden. Clear golden with low off-white head. Weak aroma. Taste is malty and hoppy. More malty than hoppy actually. Fruit, spice, citrus. Sweet with a touch of bitterness. Not an IPA.

Really pleasantly surprised to find this slightly malty strongish beer. IPA is the rage but this isn't following a trend. Nice, well balanced and great with a curry.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle at Zeera in South Shields. I ate alone. They put me in the centre of the room like an exhibit. The meal was really delicious. Naga chillies but used correctly so that it had all the flavour without a totally dominant spice. It’s been a while since I had a curry that good. The beer was alright too. Acted as a good foil to the curry.
