COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Kurtos (124) - Sydney, - FEB 14, 2013
Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

Kauge (755) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from a Viking Line ferry. BB Jan 2016. Clear golden colour, with an off-white head showing some lace and retaining moderately well. Bubbling a lot. The nose is barely there - I get faint notes of malts and caramel, paper, and a bit of a peppery hint. Tastes similarily, it’s quite malty and papery, and only a stinging herbal bitterness to be found in the overall watery palate. Duh, if this is an IPA, then where are the hops? Strong carbonation, dry finish. An utterly pointless brew.

Jahe (120) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2015

AshtonMcCobb (4067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle at the Jolly Botanist. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - citrus and biscuits. Taste - grapefruit, spice and biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - more of an amber ale than an ipa.
