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

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours pale gold with a billowing, off-white head. Aroma of straw, dusty malt and some grassy hops. Flavour was bitter with biscuit malt and a decent finish. Good.

TET (1756) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2008
Misty orange beer with medium white head. Aroma is pleasant: hoppy fruits and some malts and grass. Flavour is strongly bitter but not very pleasant way. Flavour is also musty and clearly worse than aroma. Quite light to drink with lot of carbonation. Disappointment after great appearance and aroma, but musty flavour and soda-like palate doesn’t save this beer.

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2008
500 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy golden color, creamy white head. Hoppy aroma. Crisp, bitter taste, sweet malty finish. Oily mouthfeel, medium-low carbonation. Pretty good.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Golden, small lacing head. Malty nose, at first it’s grassy, later flowery hops, little fruitiness. Straightforward malty and grassy flavor. Clean bitter finish, little seedy grapefruit. Light to medium bodied. Still not an IPA, although this one has a bit more effort.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2008
Pale golden colour, nice white head, that turns out quite stable. Harmonious citrus hop aroma. A good bitter punch on the tongue, some spicy notes as well lemon tastes. A great little bitter from the Isle of Man.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2008
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.

pxii (12) - Stånga, Gotland, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2008
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 (10176) - 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
