COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Has been seen in cask.
This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

330ml bottle from BeerBods. A very enjoyable IPA indeed. Fizzier than other IPAs I have had, but that soon passes to leave a caramel aftertaste. A good amount of hops, too. Will definitely drink again.

At el Raval l de Andorra. Nice honey/copper color with cream beige head. Great balance with some hoppyness and bitterness but still very smooth and easy to drink. Great palate too, just bubbly enough but yet very soft. A new favorite maybe?

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2014
Mahogany colored Amber ale with a small white foam. Fine hoppy but a little too bitter and too much carbon dioxide.

robinvboyer (3103) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Amber pour, small off white head. Big cereal aroma, breads, slight roast and some nuts with a touch of herbal hops. The finish is lightly bitter, and quite malty, but the malts are light. Nothing is over powering,,its all quite subtle from the bready, lightly toasted malts to the herbacious, grassy hops. A great balance of subtle flavours.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Cask at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Deep amber with a thick yellowy-beige head. Big floral and pine aromas and flavours all the way through but with a good balancing sweet malt behind. Dry finish. Great beer.

czar (4359) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear hazy dark golden, red tint, with an abnormal off-white-greyish head, good retention and lacing. sweetish toasted malts, some specialty malts, carbonic acid, grassy, spicy and citrusy centennial and cascade, pepper. overly carbonated, light body, foamy, balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. obviously a bottle conditioning issue.. for a brew that seemed to be a more than decent slightly hoppy red.

lesifflebiere (1266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Bière acajou plutôt foncé, avec une abondante mousse de couleur beurre d’érable. Effervescence générale forte. Le nez est en houblons tropicaux, zeste d’orange, ananas et mangues sont évoqués. Dichotomie d’amertume et de fruité, ce qui en fait une sorte de rousse à la fois fruitée et amère, et non caramélisée. Honnête, correcte, sans artifices inutiles.
