COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled. Filtered and force-carbonated.
"Okells IPA is an extremely light coloured beer with a surprising full bodied taste, the sweetness is offset by a very strong hopping rate. That gives the finished beer an over all roundness with very spicy lemony notes and a fine dry finish to counteract the initial sweetness."
originally known as Dr Okells’ IPA

Really disappointing beer, this is not an IPA. Definitely doesn’t fit the description on the back of the bottle. The experience will not be repeated..

stravale (2123) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [080814]
Golden amber, light haze, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of grapefruit, citrus zest, sweet pale malts, decent amount of zest here
Taste as expected from the aroma, plenty of bitter citrus zest, pithy grapefruit, fairly sweet pale malts, lemony zest, malts let the hops thorough, clean fresh flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium body, good bitter sweet balance. Finish as main flavour, bitter zest, clean finish
Overall - Well made beer, clean, quaffable, easy drinking, very fresh

500ml bottle from B&M, Shrewsbury. Wasn’t expecting that aroma.. smells exactly like hop fields! Pours gold with lasting white head. Taste is afternoon brewery aromas, hop fields, lemon, citrus and raw hops. Wasn’t expecting much but this is very pleasant to drink.
