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.

I’m not a big fan of this beer. It smells intoxicating, but the taste is ...soapy. I know I use that a lot to describe this kind of beer, but thats what it tastes like to me.....nice color, great foam.....and the taste isn’t bad...but its just something off-setting to me!

mice (781) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Kirkas oranssinkeltainen olut paksulla, aika nopeasti häviävällä mutta runsaasti pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu hedelmäinen, samoin maku pehmeä ja hedelmäinen ja karamellisen makea. Hieman tähän kaipaisi enemmän humalan puraisua ja katkeroa.

explosivedog (174) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours straw colour with a thick lingering head. Perfume and citrus aroma. Flavour starts sweet with lemon and then goes into a long bitter finish. Big clean flavours. That crisp bitter finish lasts forever. Really quite beautiful.

Scrumpy369 (438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle in Edinburgh. Clear yellow colour, nice white head with good retention. Nose is brutal hoppy. Fruity, flowery. Mango, peach, tulips. Taste sadly doesn’t deliver as much, just medium bitterness. Nice overall, but lovely nose.

beerplace (690) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
On tap at Blackbird Public House. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is some berries/fruits. Strange, but pleasant. Taste is not so rich, with the same notes though. Same berries bitterness aftertaste. Unusual, interesting.
