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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color, nice inch of thick off white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lace. Good looking brew. Nose shows plenty of spicy and earthy, floral hops, some smooth biscuity malt. Good aroma, if slightly muted. Flavor starts with a clean, crisp punch of spicy bitterness, moves into some light floral notes, bits of clean citrus. Clean, dry malt backbone. More light bitterness on the finish. Palate is crisp and clean, medium carbonation, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA with a somewhat unique hop profile.

0,33 cl bottle. Pours an apple juice coloured beer. Taste is ipa bitter, with a sour taste. Since I donít really like ipaís ( but Iíll will die trying ) this isnít my cup of tea. Not the worst one I have tasted.

One2remeber (161) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottled 03/26/15. Bright orange, light amber hue. Brightly clear. Enough pale malt for character, but lets the hops do all the work. Orange citrusy, bit of pear (white fruit) lean more on the English side compared to a big dank, grapefruit type American IPA. Noble hop character lingers with a woodsy taste compared to medicinal or leafy. Standard EIPA, not over the top, easy drinking, enough character to not be taken lightly.

MrHangover (3062) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange beer with a big white, lacy head on top. Aroma is grassy, citrussy, grapefruit and a touch of malts in there. Flavor is mildly bitter, a big sweet malted base and a bit dusty. Checked the bottle and itís over 4 months old, so Iíd reckon it must the age on this bottle that makes it a shadow of itís former self. Need to revisit sometimes.

Gangstergafje (133) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
The beer has a beautiful amber color and a head as white as snow. It has the typical IPA features. The beer has a delicious citrusy hop smell. The fresh lemon zest is accompanied by a herbal hint. The taste is just as refreshing as the smell. It also has the distinct IPA taste, those citrusy hop flavors in combination with a tingling bitterness. The fizzly beer tingles the tongue anyway. The finish is delicious. It contains the IPA bitterness and at the beginning of the finish there are the sour hops. Nice.

Bottled :R8 ; A pretty solid mid-card IPA , very easy to swill 4 bottles without blinking /. Nose has resemblance with a classy air-freshener . Pine ,wood, aromatics, grass. Some rich caramel. A firm malty palate is married well with notes of orange , grapefruit , spice, caramel. Pretty dry and raspy finish . Gud stiff !
