See separate cask listing for rating the limited cask special
India Pale Ale first made its name in the 19th century. Here’s hoping our pioneering IPA can make its mark too.
Its fervent hoppy character hails from the unique addition of large quantities of hops at three separate points during brewing. The result is a beer that’s rounded yet refreshing, with delicate floral notes and oodles of zesty freshness.

Colour
Pale gold
Smell
Freshly mown grass, clean grapefruit and pine trees
Taste
Rich vanilla from the oak, with lots of zestness and a light bitterness from the hops
Finish
Full bodies, but still crisp and refreshing.

Gehbe (231) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours clear golden with a medium white head and decent lacing. Light aroma of citrus, vanilla, wood, spice. Nicely balanced taste, mellow/rounded bitterness getting stronger and lingering for a while in aftertaste. Nice medium to full body, somewhat oily texture, medium carbonation, subtle alcoholic warmth on finish. Not bad, though aroma could be stronger/richer.

Fules (793) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2016
Kicsi, tartós hab, szűrt, borostyán szín. Illata alig érezhető, Csak némi vaníliás, hordós illatka. Édes, vaníliás, enyhén tölgyfahordós ízvilág, ami mögött egy viszonylag semleges ale bújik meg, enyhe keserűvel és a citrusosság halvány árnyékával. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, kellemes ízvilágú sör.

2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 12C English IPA)

AROMA: Light citrus orange scent. Some vanilla/wood character. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Hazy shade of orange. Small white foam mostly dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Orangepeel is the predominant flavor, though actual bitterness is low. Lightly sweet amber malt base is present throughout. Fairly assertive toffee flavor right as it finishes imparts a nice sweetness. Oak character is mild. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; consistently crisp. Finishes dry with a little astringency. Otherwise smooth and quaffable. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is more of an amber or pale ale than an EIPA. Not much wood character, either. Still, it’s enjoyable for it is. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 32/50

vinivini (1278) - BELARUS - AUG 19, 2016
Clear golden, medium white frothy head. Stays as a foam layer on liquid surface. Nos of honey, blossom, biscuit. Light to medium body. Oily texture. Bittersweet taste. The malts deliver honeyinsh and biscuity notes. Otherwise the consumer gets proper hop spiciness and floral impression. Well balanced. Well made. Very nice.

Kupione w sklepie nocnym po 4,99 zł. Fajny aromat gumy balonowej, choć trochę słaby (nikły). Wygląd jest nawet ok. Smak jest fajny, rześki, z lekką goryczką. Wyjątkowo pijalne.

Bottle. Clear golden, short lasting head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some bread and hints of hoppy fruits. Caramel, wood, hops, some vanilla and some malt in the taste. Good enough.

achat vente privée. Aprčs "l’original", celle-ci est une petite déception. Le goűt qui domine est proche d’un panaché

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas, kullankeltaista aavistuksen tummempi ja rusehtavampi olut hyvin vähäisellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu houkuttelevan eksoottisen hedelmäinen, varsinkin persikkainen sekä toffeinen, hunajainen ja häivähdyksen viskinen. Maku on pettymys. Varsin hiilihappoinen, jopa vichymäinen ensivaikutelma peittää oikeastaan kaiken muun alleen. Hedelmäisyys on vahvan hiilihappoisuuden takana aika hyvin piilossa. Lisäksi hieman ruohoisuutta ja kuivaa happamuutta havaittavissa. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Ihan älyttömiä en tältä odottanut, mutta silti selkeä pettymys.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl chez Charlie et Renaud Couleur ambrée peu de mousse et peu d’effervesnce Nez sur le houblone EN bouche ça ressemble ŕ un panaché, bref c’est dégueu
