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.

Pours an bronzish, copper with a fluffy, pillowy white head. Very sticky lace. Nose is fresh grass, floral notes, mild lemon oils and citrus. Very crisp and clean flavor. Mild resiny pine and grapefruit pith, with a brown sugar sweetness. Oily with a fresh hoppy bite and a subtle malty backbone. Nicely palatable. Great session beer with obvious lower IBUs. Medium body. Nicely done.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s . Really enjoyable IPA, gave a decent hoppy hit. Not a lot of carbonation which seems to contradict some other reviews, will definitely need to investigate this one further. .

Bosskie (496) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Copper colour, crystal clear with some bubbles now and then, and a nice foamy white head. Smell is cereals, peaches and cheese. Figs. Caramel. Subtle touch of orange. Maybe honey. Taste is bitter sour with a hint of sweetness. Full but passes away relatively fast. Metallic. Apples. Watery. Finish is astringent with hints of grapefruit peels.

Not too keen on the gassyness of this beer. After taste is dry and the flavour quickly disapates...not too impressed

Maarten1993 (421) - - MAR 26, 2015
Drank at home with Kaspar 25-3-2015. For 5,9% the beer has a fine taste. Not very special. A bit too bitter. Not as rich as some other IPAs (for example Mkkeller I Beat U or Brew Dog Hardocore IPA): slightly boring bitterness.
