COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: A simple nose of citrus and pine hop aromas with light notes of Kiwi or other tropical fruit. A: Clear orange color with a one-finger head. T: Somewhat more subtle and watery than the nose suggests. The flavors are not as strong as I would have expected but it does have a nice pine and resin aftertaste, as you would want in an IPA. P: Light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation. O: A decent IPA, but not quite bitter enough for an IPA but still tasty.

Une belle IPA bien équilibrée. Couleur ambrée, pas mal d’agrumes, de notes de citron, une peu d’ananas et une légère acidité. Un ensemble qui se tient assez bien.

355ml bottle bought from Morrisons Saltney, poured into a tulip glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small but long lasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet with citrus and hops. Taste is hoppy and spicy with a crisp dry finish, nicely carbonated. Excellent IPA, very easily drinkable

IPAgutten79 (357) - Skui, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2013
Gylden med medium skum. Aroma av humle og søtlige frukter av noe slag. Smaker godt, humle og søte tropiske frukter. Citrus også? Den er i hvert fall ganske søt. Lettdrikkelig. Grei munnfølelelse, litt tynn kanskje. Savner litt mer "sting" i denne, men dog bra. Medium bitterhet i ettersmaken. Merker tiltakende styrke i aroma og smak ettersom brygget sakte finner en høyere temperatur, noe den kler godt.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2013
35.5cl Bottle: BBD 5th Apr 14, poured into a Duvel glass on 19th Nov 13. Orange to old goal body, slight haze: on top there sat a full, deep head of foaming bubbles. The nose is fairly sweet, tropical fruits, mild grapefruit notes and pine nut esters. The taste was also semi-sweet and again, like the aroma it had tropical fruit hints, a citrus feel with a few nuts thrown in for good measure. Add a yeasty undertone and you end up with a fine tasting beer. Not like many IPA’s I’ve had before, but most enjoyable.

Tomy63 (173) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
couleur or profond, nez classique d’IPA, un peu de résine, beaucoup d’agrumes, pamplemousse, citron, un peu de mangue. Belle attaque, très fruitée, surtout sur les agrumes, puis de plus en plus sur le citron. Ca manque un peu de fruits en fin de bouche, l’amertume commence à se faire sentir. Finale moyenne, sur le citron, et une amertume très sèche. Beau départ, mais malheureusement le fruité ne dure pas jusqu’à la fin. Ca reste une bonne IPA, simple et facile à boire, légère et désaltérante

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2013
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a two-finger white foamy head that retained well and produced curtain-like lacing. Carbonation very low with only a few large bubbles. Aroma of nice citrus/grapefruit hops and a touch of spice. Taste of sweet malt and slightly bitter citrus. Light to medium body. Creamy/slippery mouthfeel. A bit sweeter than other IPAs and with a slightly bitter finish; on the lower end of bitterness for an IPA but still a good beer.
