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.

Bamsen78 (3659) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and fruit, with some citric notes. Intense, bitter flavour of hops, complemented by sweet notes of fruit and caramel malt and touches of citrus. Bitter aftertaste with citric hints and estery touches. Well-balanced and decent, indeed.

Listigovers (387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Talk about a nice sweet hoppy smell on this one. Dense white head that sits thin on top. Clear golden/copper. Well balanced beer with lots of hops and a medium body. Long aftertaste is mostly hops but in the end is a bit bready really nice.

Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle as a gift from Espoo, Finland. BB Jun 2015. Translucent orange with a beautiful fluffy white top. Great retention and thick lacing. Sweet aroma of malts and tropical fruits, biscuity, caramelly, slightly spicy. Taste is more sweet than bitter, nice and refreshing, the resinous-grapefruity bitterness appearing somewhere in the finish but I wouldn’t say it lasts long. Body light to medium, carbonation quite soft, palate smooth. It’s a pretty good easy-drinking (maybe even sessionable) beer but I’d more happily support small breweries rather than Anheuser-Busch - can’t see myself ever buying a bottle/can/pint of this. Glad to have tried it though.
