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.

330ml bottle purchased in Asda. Pours deep gold with a reasonable head. Aroma is predominantly vanilla and caramel. This light sweetness is noticeable in flavour also but is countered by a medium/high bitterness from the hops. IMO the claimed "layers of zesty flavour" from the hops do not appear, instead being muted by the typical I&G vanilla/oak flavour. A quality beer but again not really my type of quality beer.

Dobre może wygląd to mala piana, ale wiadomo to Brytyjskie Ale, lekka metnosc, bardzo niewielka. Ale zapach porzadany chmielny. Smak konkretnie goryczkowy, mało owocowości a sporo goryczy, takiej typowej dla Brytanii. Bardzo wytrawne średnio slodowe. To mi Pasuje i jest bliższe IPA niż mocnemu Ale bo alkoholu niewiele i zero wyczuwalności. Takie IPA to lubie bardzo. Dobrze odfermentowane

Golden color with a moderate, stable off-white head. Decent lace. Scents of floor malt, apricots and a little wood (mostly cedar). Decent lace. Light fruit and a bit of oak in the flavors. Dry combination of wood and oak. Longer linger with more apricot

Hidden_Pooch (488) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Get rid of that clear bottle. Pours a clear light amber with barley there head. Aroma is of skunk, light pine, wood, toffee, and vanilla. Tastes of skunk, caramel, toffee, floral hops, and light pine. Has a medium body with low carbonation and a syrupy feel. Can’t even tell this is an IPA.

corkyrory66 (1214) - BELGIUM - APR 2, 2016
Nous abordons cette toasted oak ipa avec une certaine curiosité. Houblonnée 3 fois, brassée en small batches, cette british style ipa est donc aged over oak for 41 days prior to release... Couleur doré soutenu, à la clarté brillante. Bulles fines partout, vives. Mousse beige très clair, épaisse, puis joli nappage de surface. Arômes de fruit de la passion, pointe de vanille, melon, pamplemousse, touche de citronnelle. 1ère bouche très souple, à l’ensemble fruité, mais vite dominé par un côté herbeux, ortie. Arrière-bouche déséquilibrée, le boisé contredisant le fruité... 2ème mieux intégrée, elle laisse parler les fruits. Arrière-bouche assez dense, longue. 3ème au bel ensemble avec beaucoup de nuances. Arrière-bouche plutôt riche. Longueur qui développe le côté fruité/boisé, avec du tabac blond, quelques tanins. Jambes lisses. Levure douce, fine. Alcool qui permet au fruité de s’exprimer, mais il ne tient pas la longueur. Finale douce. CONCLUSION : une bière avec des arguments, mais mal assemblée pour permettre à tout ce potentiel de s’exprimer en harmonie. Ah, le travail de brassage n’est pas de la petite bière !!!

TaxiDriver (1672) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
A fruity aroma, grapefruit and hops. The head is small, white and foamy with a rather short duration. The body is dark orange. A fruity taste, quite bitter and nice. The beer is light to medium strong, very creamy with a normal carbonation.
