Tap@Schouskjelleren. Light orange, nice creamy white head, good lacing. Not a ton of aroma, some spicy hops, some malt sweetness, fruity. Not a lot of IPA traits to be found, at least not as pronounced as one is used to. Is more of a pale ale in bitterness and overall flavourfulness. I would like this more on the bitter side. It’s almost like this was old when it was served, it just lacked punch in all departments, and came off boring.

From Club del Gourmet of Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not bad, but traditional english hops arent as tasty nor aromatic as modern ones from usa, new zealand, etc.

L’ipa traditionnelle est vraiment un genre à part, difficilement rapprochable des autres IPA. Elle a tout d’une bitter à l’anglaise, nez et bouche maltés, caramel, petite amertume, petites touches épicées caractéristique, faible carbonatation. L"IPA et celle ci en particulier aurait un nez plus houblonné et légèrement plus fruitée et amère en bouche.Mais c’est très léger.C’est un prototype de l’IPA anglaise qui n’est pus trop mon genre.

Huge floral hit on the nose. Taste of floral spicey hops dominates, quite sweet, low bitternes and a little malt. As flowery as it gets.

corkyrory66 (1264) - BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2016
Ipa so british avec houblons du Kent Fuggles et Goldings. Orge et blé pour un niveau abv intéressant de 7,4 %. Mon exemplaire était à 2 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambre roux abricoté, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines par milliers, en multiples fontaines, superbe. Mousse beige clair, soyeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt cara, grillé, bois de fût, vin blanc, poire cuite, pointe de cumin. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame malt/houblon, amertume un peu imprécise. Arrière-bouche avec un côté légèrement fumé !! 2ème avec une belle texture maltée, petit côté vineux. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume donnant des notes boisées par moments. 3ème à l’ensemble avec un côté légèrement portorisé !! Arrière-bouche belle, mais hors sujet. Longueur qui continue sur la même ligne. Jambes serrées, groupées, assez grasses. Levure douce, un rien épicée, ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il est sans grande action sur l’équilibre. Finale sans envergure. CONCLUSION : une ipa anglaise hors sujet !! C’est un comble … Son côté boisé et vineux enlève les touches d’amertume qui devaient venir des beaux houblons employés ...

Bottled 33cl. Pours a very clear yellow beer, low white head. Nose is very low, mainly sugar / bubble gum. Taste is mainly alcohol. A very uninteresting product.

Excelente exemplo de uma IPA original. Equilibrada, com aroma e amargor característicos dos lúpulos ingleses.

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Malty backbone, typical English IPA, kind of sweet, not too bitter. Fair enough.

R2k2 (445) - NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
A cloudy, orange colored beer with a firm, compact, also slightly orange colored layer of foam. The aroma is somewhat sour, and contains traces of citrus fruits. It tastes quite bitter, sour, and resembles some licorice. Quite complex. Is aftertaste is like licorice, and moves on into a bitterness with the touch of nuts. Een troebel, oranje bier met een stevige, compacte, ook lichtoranje gekleurde schuimlaag. Het aroma is zuur met de hint van citrusvruchten. De smaak is bitter, zuur, en heeft de tinten van drop. Vrij complex dus. De nasmaak is dorpachtig, en laat een bitterheid achter met de hint van noten.

Hafif meyvemsi tadları barındırıyor ama çok baskın değil. Şerbetçi otu kendini hissettiriyor ve damakta uzun süre kalıyor. 7,4 lük alkol oranı sizi ürkütmesin alkolü neredeyse hiç hissetmiyorsunuz . Köpük çok güzel ve kalıcı.
