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

Tasty, easy drinking IPA. Tastes like a regular lager, lacking the distinct hoppiness and bitterness a associated with IPAs.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a brilliant clear gold. Aroma is of slight pine and grapefruit with a touch of oak. Tastes is sweet oak with a slight touch of hops. Not really a six pack beer. But I will drink one. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Vighals (1148) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
Gulbrun klar med hvitt skum. Honning, ananas og humlelukt. Lett med mye sitrus, noe bitter. Kunne ønsket mer bitterhet fra en IPA. Medium kullsyre, kort

arsol (550) - NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
Uklar lys brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter noe søtlig malt og hint av humle. Søtlig og syrlig i smak. Lettdrikkelig med godt med kullsyre.

sloth (2483) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Medium sized white head, good retention, spotty lacing.Pale Lager appearance. Nose is slightly nutty and grassy, dry malts. Body is lightly medium, sorta creamy with a soft carbonation. Dry pale malts are a hint toasty and grainy, light leafy hop notes, tad floral with very light woody notes. Dry finish, clean with a light bite. Not bad just plain. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Smooth and tasty...but more of a lager for me. Can’t really taste the toasted oak, barely any hops.

vadie (704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Couleur pale du cuivre avec un petit tête blanc. L’arôme du vanille, chêne, un peu d’houblon et du malt. Par comparaison à les IPA de la côte l’ouest de lesquelles je suis habitué, il manque vraiment les arômes du pin et agrumes qu’ils mentionnent sur l’étiquette. Le goût est un peu du malt, vanille, et un finition et pas amer pour le style. Rien de special. Il manque du corps, et quand il se réchauffe l’arôme est un peu come un soda et il a un petit goût des céréales. L’arôme est beaucoup mieux quand c’est froide.

bottle. clear gold with whipped white head. grassy, floral english hop aroma with a clean pale malt. simple english style ipa with grassy floral hops. it has some diacetyl or honey-like sweetness and the oak also adds some perceived tannin sweetness and vanilla notes. low carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, pale malt, moderate hoppy, grass, citrus, fruity hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration, fruity citrus.

AlainG (1213) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
D’un doré lumineux, coiffée d’une grosse mousse qui diminue de volume lentement. De petites traces sont laissées au verre. Nez houblonné, bien vert, sucré et de melon miel, faiblement, mais appréciable. Un goût plutôt timide, toutefois agréable. L’amertume est inexistante Des pointes poivrées et doucement sucrées ferment le pas. Pour moi, c’est une petite bière, sans grandes qualités, qui se prend bien. (M.A. Avril 2015 L4106) (1203-270814)
