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.

Love this stuff because it totally opened my eyes to American craft beers. I don’t want to insult it by calling it a gateway beer, but it’s not QUITE as fantastic as I remember it now that my palate has developed. The hopping is mainly a firm, clean bitterness, with only mild hop flavor but powerful aroma. To me it’s very piney, woody and almost waxy. Typically clean/neutral US malt & yeast.

Clear golden beer with a white head. Bitter, dry citrus aroma. Flavour is initially the same though there’s a touch of sweet citrus in there as well. It’s not the most spectacular IPA you’ll ever have and it certainly doesn’t taste it’s strength which is a bit dangerous but it’s a crisp, refreshing beer and goes down very easily.

Zakupi?em chc?c spróbowa? angielskiej ipy z usa, która to jeszcze wygra?a jakie? medale w Ameryce. Tymczasem dostaj? bardzo klarowne piwo o smaku w zasadzie zwyk?ego lagera i odrobin? bardziej gorzkie. Aromat te? taki sobie. No có?, mo?e kiepska warka.

Hopverdju (347) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2016
Goudblond met wandklevend rijkelijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: onmiddellijk een onaangename zweetgeur, hoppig en wat pompelmoes. Smaak: bitterig, hars, zoetig. Medium volmondig en medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter en iets te zoetig. Niet voor de ganzen, maar ook niet geweldig.

On tap @ Applebees. Pours a dirty amber with a nice head of white foam. Aroma is of light pine with some citrus. Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Light pine with some semi-sweet citrus. Not harsh or bitter at all. Very enjoyable. Not what I expected from an IPA. Was great with a spicy meal.
