Light brown IPA.Powerful floral, minty and grassy aroma with a straw like colour and long bitter finish. Original IPA (stronger and very hoppy). This beer will easily survive a long journey to India.

Hazy but oh well, we love it down Calderdale way. Sediment, yep. Iím afraid youíre going to have to leave the bottom, which is usually hard for me to take as someone who wants every last drip out of their bottle. One of the more popular LV brews.

Golden color. Aroma: Bread, grass, floral, citrus and earthy. Taste: Classically bitter! Grapefruit, citrus, more bready flavours, almost some salty flavours as well. Nice fizzy mouthfeel with a long bitter finish. Itís been a while since my last british IPA and this one is pretty good. Refreshing, itís way more bitter than I would have expected. First Iíve tried from the brewery and itís promising.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2014
500ml bottle, hazy orange colour, medium frothy white head, excellent lacing. Moderately malty aroma of nuts and hay with moderate to heavy herbal, earthy and citric hops and some buttery yeast esters. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet turning into a long quite bitter finish with a moderately astringent feel. Full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite pleasant and somewhat complex yet balanced.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle from Bitter Virtue, Southampton, purchased and consumed 17-01-10 Pours warm gold almost clear with just a little haze and a white filmy head that swiftly departs. Nose is lightly perfumed hops but then there is a little soapiness, Loz on the other hand gets day old cut grass thatís warmed in the sun. Taste initially sweet but I get the soapy hops again and its quite soft in the mouth, the bitterness is there but its not harsh its a slow burner and a very refined English bitterness, some sweet fruits but then there is also a slight flush of citrus. Nice beer thatís a real slow grower, bitterness is a touch furry. I was told that this was brewed with New Zealand Hops but forgot the variety, though I definately recall that it wasnít one of the more obvious varieties. Not an instant hit but after a while I really enjoyed this beer. I understand that this is the December monthly and bottles were very limited. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Smooth malt base, whisper of cream but itís not too sweet. Citric peel hops, notbtoo aggrrssive. Finishes smooth. Quite a tasty and drinkable IPA.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Ňrhus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2014
0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark amber color and a medium, thick, off-white head. Pleasant aroma of fruity hops, loads of honey, and some mild malty notes. Taste is typically bitter due to strong hop presence but has some malty notes like hay and caramel as well. Medium body, oily texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and also features malty caramel and hay aside from typical hops. Overall the beer is pretty good, doesnít live an astringent aftertaste like many IPAs do, also the uncanny maltiness is subdued with time by stronger hoppy flavors.

Fresh and easy drinking. light yellow a bit hazy. Tasty hops save the light body of malts.
