COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The perfect accompaniment to any summer day! Road Trip is an American IPA brewed with three varieties of hops from the Pacific Northwest of the US. This beer was inspired by a recent trip made by the Holgate family to the states of Washington and Oregon, which enjoy a thriving craft brewing industry.

HKdIPA (237) - HONG KONG - SEP 13, 2014
Draft at Taps KL. Translucent honey amber pour. Aroma is grassy hops. Taste is very very bitter grassy hops with a bit of tropical fruitiness. Slightly sweet then dry bitter finish. Not bad but too bitter without enough to balance.

Golden straw colour. Aroma is mild hops. Taste is caramelly hops without any residual sickliness. A good go-to IPA.

beer-yum (472) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Enticing aroma is backed up with a smooth full bodied taste. More laid back than expected - more like a regular pale ale in my opinion. But an excellent example of that style!

VinegarStroke (280) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle: Clear, copper, light head and good lace. Caramel, dry fruit and hops. Smokey. Fruit. Dry, not sour and very bitter. Somewhere between an English IPA and a East Coast IPA. Crystal malt shows strongly. Good intensity and length. Probably a little coarse and bitterness just dominates flavor. Solid beer but not great.

Clear light gold pour with not much head. Tropical, mango and stone fruit aroma with malt underneath. Quite bitter up front, oranges, tropical fruit and caramel, finishes dry. Pretty good

Very enjoyable IPA. Had it on tap at the Rainbow Hotel in Fitzroy. Good head and great tasting beer. Nice hops and malt. A bit grassy, which I like.
