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.

Oily grassy citric hopbityter flavor with hints of peach and pineapple. Tasty IPA, pleasant to drink.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, Yngwie]
Pours a nice hazy pale amber with a 2 cm thich creamy white head on top. Wonderful lacing in big blotches. Aroma is strong, with lots of pine hops, mixing with caramel, grapefruit, light roastiness. Low to medium carbonation and a rather creamy feel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, lots of caramel and herbal hoppy sweetness. Middle is dry and pine-like hoppy, before a long lingering dry aftertaste of fruity hops mixed with that light roast that appeared in the aroma as well.
