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.

Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Aroma of fruity, piney hops with lighter pale malt backing. Flavor is similar throughout with mellower flavors and a mild bitter ending. Not bad.

On tap at the King’s Head Pub, Winnipeg. Nice balance of sweet tropical fruit and crisp citrus zest. Fairly full bodied, and nicely balanced. A very solid IPA.

355 ml. bottle @ home. Bottled on 03/01/2015 – BBF 03/01/2016. I still cannot believe that I actually bought this in a supermarket (albeit an NL owned one) in Belgium. Hopefully this is one step closer to my dream of buying BCBS in the supermarket. Clear sparkling amber, creamy white head. Nose is oily USA style pine resin hops with a thicker than usual caramel malts, malts overpower the hops a bit. Taste is oily bitter pine resin hops, plenty of caramel malts, oily mixed with still with very American pine resin hops, light floral, flowers, oily tea, lots of oily tea pine resin tea & chamomile grapefruit peel, bitter very oily bark finish,… Oily med. carbonation body. Overall -> I have heard a lot of people say bad things about this beer & I have really no idea as to why? This beer is exactly what it promises on the label and English-Style IPA with USA hops. Nothing spectacular but as an everyday easy drinking beer this is really nice stuff. I really enjoyed, I really do not understand the people hating on this.

Enige nieuwe bier bij de ah dat echt de moeite waard is. Ziet er prachtig uit. Vooral de kraag blijft erg lang op zijn plek. Heerlijk hoparoma en -smaak. Goede bitterheid, body en carbo. Erg lekker!

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 (497) - 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.
