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.

olsvammel (5719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle from Bottl3.5hop in Stockholm. Hoppy and fruity smell with citrus, well lime. Similar taste but not as citrusy, I got herbal and piney hops as well. Light body. Light to medium bitterness. Nice for this ABV range.

Jyrsa (461) - - 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 (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 29, 2016

Vells (1428) - 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.
