COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Get It India is our latest offering to the hop gods. Named for the strong, hoppy ales originally sent from England to British India. We have selected big, bold new world hops for this tribute. Featuring some of our favourites from New Zealand including Green Bullet, Nelson Sauvin and Wakatu to create a peppery, tropical shock to the senses.

Bottle at home. It pours clear amber with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is grapefruit, lemon, touch of soap, hay, honeysuckle and biscuit. The taste is crisp, bitter grapefruit, wood, resin, floral, peppery, green hop, light warming alcohol and varnish with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Clean, crisp and bitter. Crushable.

AshtonMcCobb (2312) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a nice generous fluffy head. Nose - some fruit salad with possibly peaches being the prominent fruit. Just a hint of grassiness on the end. Taste - oh, it’s passionfruit or papaya this time, then cleansing nettley bitterness. There’s just a hint of biscuit malt and spice in the background. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry and long refreshing finish. Overall - what a beautifully balanced beer. The fruitiness of the hops at first seems like it’s going to be too rich and tropical, but this is beautifully swept away on the finish. Dangerously drinkable.
