COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kellele siis humalad ei meeldiks? Üks korralik humalapomm tõmbab õllesõpra nagu palderjan kassi. Humaladoosi saamiseks pöörab asjatundja oma pilgu IPA ehk Indian Pale Ale’i poole. See on õllestiil, kus väljundit "liiga palju humalaid" ei ole olemas. Paraku näeb IPA ette ka päris korraliku koguse alkoholi, ikka 7% ja 8% ja rohkemgi veel. Igasse olukorda aga kange õlu ei sobi. Alkohol on ikkagi alkohol ja tark õllesõber käib sellega ettevaatlikult ringi. Mis oleks, kui üks IPA oleks küll hullupööra hmalane, aga alkoholi oleks õige napilt? Just see ta on- Väike India. Õige lahja kraam, kuhu on ohtralt Columbuse, Simcoe ja Amarillo humalat sisse pandud.

"Little India"
Who does not like hops? One decent bomb of hops draws a beer friend as valerian draws a cat.
For a dose of hops, an expert turns its eyes to IPA or India Pale Ale. It is beer style, where the phrase “too much hops” does not exist. Unfortunately, IPA foresees a decent amount of alcohol, 7% or 8% and more. However, a strong beer is not suitable in every situation. An alcohol remains alcohol and smart beer friend handles it carefully.
What about one IPA being insanely hopped with a little bit of alcohol? That is what Little India is. A small beer with plenty of Columbus and Amarillo hops as well as Simcoe Brand YCR 14 hop variety in it.

Jyrsa (416) - - APR 2, 2016
TCBW. Clear light yellow with snow white head. Citrus and an untypical malt, possibly rye. Grapefruit and lots of hoppy bitterness. Awesome for a beer of the first taxation class. A bit light but that’s understandable.

Koelschtrinker (15757) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 29, 2016
Hopfiger Beginn, der sofort durch zu starke Getreidenoten getötet wird. Etwas bitter, kein Nachgeschmack. 10/7/6/6//6

Copper-orange color with white head. Aroma is grassy, shallots, resinous. Taste is the same, but with quite a dry body. Alright.

Vells (1354) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - FEB 27, 2016
Well.. with this low ABV even for session IPA, you have to make impressive hop kick, but there is no kick.. Just water with some hops floating in it. Some peach, some grass and water. Light sweet with light bitterness. Wate of stomach space.

RexTalionis (3426) - FINLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. Darker golden in color with a whitish head. Tropical fruityness and creamy notes in aroma. Grassy bitterness and some tart garden berries in taste. Quite flavorful considering the low abv.

Beerheart65 (1322) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Bit foggy straw, sparkling, frothy white head, little lacing. Mild citrus, tangerine, sweet exotic fruits, caramel malt. Fizzy, bitter, dry, light feel but crisp, red berries, long citrus finish with pine also. Light, fresh, easy to drink but I would like more..

the aroma of tangerine, pine and spicy herbs with some shades of tropical fruits... the taste is light and refreshening, malty and fruity with notes of pine needles, orange, tangerine and spicy grasses... bitter and dry finishing...
