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

Head is white and scant with lacing. Color is clear golden-yellow. Aroma is nice flowerish hoppy and lime. Flavor is very grassy with citrus fruits, malts and hops. This medium-bodied, litlle bit carbonated beer is refreshing beer with adequate bitterness.

500ml bottle A good IPA but not amongst the best. I was perhaps expecting a bit much(see rating on Okells aile) But still it is enjoyable.

Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Golden and hazy. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, citrus and the flavour is fruity, citrussy with a little maltiness and a nice, dry bitterness. It’s not an overwhelming IPA, but very British. 2152

JorisPPattyn (7912) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2007
Very clear golden brew, well-carbonated, with just off-white head. Toasted, or pre-sliced bread; warm malts, then fresh garden herbs and lunaria . In the taste, first a dull, sweet impression, alleviated by some grassy hopsflavour, but qutie subdued, a bit dull after all. Toasted again too. Medium bodied, ending a bit empty. Okells must be the only brewery in my knowledge, managing to make a wheatbeer that is more interesting than their IPA!

Hugh (153) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2007
Golden ale, pleasing zingy hops here, but not as strong or as highly hopped as I think an IPA should be. The flavour had the character of a cask ale, usually absent in bottled British ales.

bierkoning (10208) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2007
Bottle. pale blonde. Grapefruit and hops in the aroma. Grapefruity and flowery hopbitter flavor. Earthy hopbitter aftertaste with a hint of vanila. A bit sharp but well balanced ale.

skortila (4512) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2007
Aroma of floral hops, pines, citrus and some caramel malts. Clear, golden coloured with an off-white, lasting, medium heead. Taste is moderate bitter, a little sweet with citric and piney hops. Finish is more crisp and sharp with a firm dryness.
