COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many people enjoy this IPA because of its bold hop aroma and flavor while it still finishes clean. It’s a great companion with a meal or a bull session with friends. It is unfiltered and dry-hopped to give you the full blast of the Gale Force. Hops: UK East Kent Goldings, Cascade and Columbus.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good bubbly cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and mildly crisp. Smooth malts, touches of sweet cream and tangy caramel. Floral bitterness that is getting toward harsh. A little orange peel, well buried. Light semi dry finish. Floral bitter linger. A fairly harsh IPA, like an Imperial Bitter.

danlo (2150) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2016
12 fl oz bottle from Bier Huis. Orange amber colour, white foam head leaving some lacing and tropical fruit & citrus aroma. Taste is malt caramel, some biscuit, with tangy citrus grapefruit and grassy, earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering grassy bitter finish. Quite OK.

ATulloch (194) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a clear brown with little head. Not much aroma. Slight peppery orange. Flavour has the bitter hop taste but a very bland flavour. Again peppery. Expecting a hoppy bad boy with the name gale force IPA. More like a weak breeze IPA.

mile (3714) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel - light bread and light tropical/floral fruitiness, light - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and light tropical/floral fruitiness with light - some grapefruit/ citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel - faint bread and faint fruitiness with light - some citrus/grapefruit hoppynes, Too much caramel - too little bitterness and fruitiness. OK but really nothing special - lacks character.

Taste is tart-ish bitter hoppy, grassy, strawym slightly mineral and minimally medicinal, biscuity, pale malty background. Unconvincing.
