Bière légèrement plus alcoolisée aux reflets roux orangés à l'amertume prononcée et au nez floral. Ce classique anglais fut jadis concocté ainsi dans le but de faciliter l'exportation dans les colonies britanniques, entre autres aux Indes, d'où son appellation.

Appears to be a 500ml brown bottle. Guessing on the size as there is no label per se, just a white sticker with "Postcolonial IPA 6.5%" handwritten on it. (Hand?)Bottle from Goldorak. Head started to creep out the bottleneck immediately after uncapping. Very heady pour, 2 fingers plus worth of whitish cream, gernerous lacing on the glass. The beer itself is a hazy amber-orange. It absolutely glows when held up to the light. Hoppy aroma, a mix of oranges with grapefruit and lemon peel notes. Flavour was a bit unexpected - sweet orange hop flavours, lemon acidity, drier malts, some spiciness, earthiness, leather, finishes grapefruity. Some other raters noticed it as well (I thought I may have been imagining it), but theres some resemblance to Orval or De Ranke XX in this brew, which is a good thing in my opinion. Excellent beer. It’s beer like this that make trading so rewarding. Thanks again Goldorak.

Belle couleur ambree avec un col assez resistant. Aromes d’agrumes, d’herbe, de caramel. Moyennement bien balancer. Pas tres impressionnant pour ma part...

On cask at cask days event in toronto. Great ipa. But more on the malt heavy side with caramel , bread, and earthy tones in taste. Hops are subdued a bit here b ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
All’olfatto la birra si presenta giustamente erbacea ma in bocca è un disastro. Carbonazione e luppolatura esagerata ne fanno una birra ai limiti della bevibilità.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2867) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2014
On tap at Ho.st. Strangely this tap pours a ridiculously clear gold for an IPA. Big bready citrusy hop aroma. Very soft bodied with a med-full mouthfeel gives it a luscious mouthfeel.

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Has the English and malty characteristic I don’t like. Light amber. Blah. Had this on draft at the Hopfenstark brewpub. It’s good but not what I like hence the better rating than I want to give it

Arômes florales au nez, robe légèrement voilée. Plutôt céréaleux, final sèche. Houblon persistant sans être déplacé, qui ressort surtout en arrière goût.

Nice IPA. Some citrus grapefruit in nose. Pours cloudy orange with great head and lacing. Malt well-integrated and robust. Light bitter finish. Some booze as well. Finish is nice, even with some perfume. Tap at Vices et Versa.
