COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with extra hops and malt in the English tradition, but with West Coast style. This deep golden India Pale Ale is artfully balanced with a fresh, powerful aroma and a luscious finish.

olio (9015) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 9, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Pineapple and orange on the nose, mild hops, grassy notes, pine needles and malts. Flavor is a bit stuffy and malty, grainy even, some orange and mild grapefruit notes. Carbonation is medium, bitter palate. Feels a bit old sadly, I was really looking forward to this.

The_Osprey (5814) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Bottle at home as ’Drakes IPA’, 7%, "date of maximum durability = August 2016". Dark amber orange, pretty clear, still, small foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is toffee, pine, fudge, mint. Nice. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is resinous, rose water, grassy, pine, spicy finish. Very clean and crisp with nice hop spice. A very solid, classic American IPA.

on its own, it’s a tad too sweet for my taste. it worked really well with a rave macho burger and spicy fries. not a favourite but it’s otherwise a pleasant tipple.

Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2016
Flaska från Boxbeer. Klar bärnstensfärgad vätska med ganska lågt skum. Ganska försiktig fruktig doft med aprikos, ananas, citrus, gräs och tallskott. Fint balanserad kropp som är rejäl utan att bli för söt men med smak av mandelskorpor. Ganska gräsig och örtig humleprofil med lite frukt och blommor i bakgrunden, måttlig beska. En trevlig IPA.
