COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled, pasteurised, regular
See separate cask listing for rating the limited cask special
ndia 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.

Pours golden with a thick white head. Soft hop notes at immediate taste with almost a vanilla cream flavor long after swallowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Quack-Duck (8230) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
bottle, Tesco Honiton. Golden-brown with a red glow, fluffy and quickly collapsing white head. Intensive aroma, floral and fruity. Malty base with a touch of caramel, lots of citrusy hops and a spicy touch.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Golden color, clean, with small compact head. The aroma is lightly oaky, light hops. The mouthfeel is quite dry, it has light malt flavor, a bit metallic, vegetable, with very light oak.
Simple, inoffensive.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks Alex), pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of vanilla and toasted oak -- nice balance. Flavour is along the same lines, with light vanilla and a touch of toasted oak. Very pleasant flavours, with subtle vanilla characterizing this.

wihlan (341) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2014
Flaska från systemet - doften var inte så IPAig, väldigt maltig. Kristall klar och väldoft ljus, vitt skum. Silkeslen känsla i munnen av lagringen. Söt och försiktigt besk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

samzim (250) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 Malty aroma with fruity notes. Clear gold colour. Flavour of malt, oak, and citrus. Medium body and low carbonation. Quite pleasant, but does not resemble an IPA.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Keg at the Brewhouse & Kitchen Islington (I assume that counts as the bottled version). Poured a clear, mid golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma was dominated by green apples, with some light malt and brown sugar hidden somewhere behind. More apples in the flavour, with some caramel and mineral notes. Finish was boiled sweets, hay and the very faintest amount of grassy hop.

VDuquerroux (400) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A golden orange beer with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass ; medium white head ; good retention. Good lacing. Fruity aroma (citrus, lemon), herbs, hay, resin. Light body, medium dry bitter refreshing. Light body, thin texture, good carbonation, short bitter finish. Overall, ok : good aroma, refreshing, but light.

NordicV (1229) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2014
Bärnstensfärgad öl med vitt skum. I doften finn det lite citrus och gräs men i smaken så tar vaniljen över helt. Känns som det är en dålig öl i grunden som sedan dränkts totalt i ek.

visionthing (2989) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear golden with a white head. Wooden aroma dominated by vanillin with mild fruity and hoppy notes and hints of citrus. Sweet, slightly caramelly with vanilla and some fruity notes. Not exactly a refreshing IPA, and not quite my kind of beer, but drinkable.
