Bombay 106, named for a British light infantry regiment, is a healthy 7% abv and hopped with masses of Goldings according to the advertising blurb. The Goldings are very much the star of the show here, big, hefty dollops of spice and a citrus note like Seville oranges. Backed with a firm malty body which means the hops donít run away with it all. The finish is long and dry with just a hint of sherbet in there for fun.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a frothy white head and the smallest touch of carbonation. The nose is full of unexpected and interesting medicinal, herbal and clove character. The taste opens very bitter and stays that way into a long finish but there are some slightly sweeter wheat beer type flavours present too. On the whole itís overly dry for my liking - verging on astringent - while its flavours fail to mask its overt, boozy strength. Expected better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Samo Pivo, Belgrade. Slightly hazed orange, very creamy head. Full, orange citrus hop aroma. Sweet, rich, alc-full body. Tasty beer, good unusual big hop flavor, but lots of alc sweetness. A touch of vanilla, some good bittering. Solid enough.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy, golden. Large foamy white head. Not a ton or aroma at the start, mainly just some grassy notes. Medium/heavy body. Vegetal flavors; bitter, dry finish. I donít find the finish all that spicy, contra the deScription.

Not sure if there is something wrong with this one or if I just do not like this beer. The peppery finish is there, but it also has some wryness in it that isnít great.

500 ML bottle
Clear straw in the glass, white head. Good lacing and body to the head.
Nose is lemon, orange and grapefruit. Subtle but noticeable.
Taste is more assertive. Orange, grapefruit, pine and lemon. Touches of biscuit. Dry and clean, without the resin. Easy to drink for the 7% and not a hop monster either. Solid English IPA

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromat: ziołowo-trawiaste aromaty chmielowe i słodowo - karmelowa (lekko w tle) baza
Smak: lekko cierpkie, ziołowe, goryczka solidna, zdecydowanie klasycznie europejska, w tle lekkie owocowe smaczki i delikatna cytrusowość.
Bardzo przyjemna English IPA
