For three centuries England colonized India. Many Englishmen lived there under an atmosphere never assimilated. Yet they never wanted to give up their beer. Back then, it was difficult to produce a beer in Europe that would ship to its destination while maintaining quality. Several months of torrid navigation corrupted quite a few beers... To be able to arrive uncorrupted, artisans prepared a beer with more malt, creating more alcohol, and more hops, providing an antiseptic quality. It matured and conditioned in barrels aboard the ships during the journey towards India. Thus slowly developed this unique style that today enjoys a renewed popularity. We believe we have brewed with rigor a tasty and full beer, with a clear design towards hops, which is added during the manufacturing process in the form of large amounts of fresh flowers. Thus, we get a brew with very pronounced and bitter floral notes in the mouth, along with ripe fruits and resins, with an aromatic explosion of mango and watermelon. The copious amounts of malt give it its round body. You will find this bold brew deceptively easy to drink.

Aroma is yeast, tropical fruit/fruit/citrus and a hint of funk. The flavor is tropical fruit, spices, hops, slight graininess, malts and a rather bitter finish.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2015
courtesy of Antonio Rey - damned fucking gusher !!! I hate this beer already ... red-orange under a solid and persistent creamy white head; piney and soapy aroma with notes of grapefruits; solid carbonation, sweet and grainy, decently bitter and quite astringent; long piney and grapefruity finish - raw yet ok

Tap, Řllets dag, Kolding. Hazy amber, small offwhite head. Hoppy aroma, apples and plum perhaps. Flavour gets more piney but still quite fruity. Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel.

Pinta de barril a Homo Sibaris. Color ambre amb escuma blanca de poca densitat. Aroma pronunciat a taronja, cítrics i fruites tropicals. El gust es basa sobretot en les últimes, tot i que queda massa dolç segurament per la combinació amb les maltes. L’amargor és poc pronunciat en el regust, predomina cert sabor a llaminadures per dir quelcom aproximat. Cos normal pel tipus de birra, carbonatació correcte. Fa molt bona olor perň en el sabor hi ha alguna cosa que no acaba de lligar, tot i que no és dolenta ni molt menys.

Bottled imported by 2 friends that work in distribution. Pours a murky amber into the glass, with a huge sticky ice-cream head that reduces to chunky lacing and a thick residual ring of suds. The nose is of fresh flowers, grapefruit and melon. A tad hop-forward, the caramel malts bring a nice balance to the flowery bitters at play. A light pepper finish closes the pull. The body is medium and smooth to the palate, with soft carbonation that provides an easy quaff. Not over-the-top, this is an average IPA suitable for most any occasion.
