COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, it’s actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

niquillis (1180) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Beer Dock, Crewe. Pours hazy golden with white froth. In your face grapefruit aroma. Plenty going on with light fruits and well balanced bitter finish. A little thin but fantastic for the strength.

AshtonMcCobb (2919) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
On cask @ the Stockbridge Tap. This was 2.9%. Appearance - golden with a slight haze and a nice creamy head. Nose - lovely big mango note then grapefruit coming behind. Taste - more of the same but less rewarding than the nose. Palate - well it’s light and clean and tastes big for the strength, but as expected for the strength, it finishes quickly. Overall - yeah, a great session pint.

bursprak (763) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pour is clear dark golden with a firm small head. Lots of pine needles, apricots and mangoes. Lively carbonation and a tad watery mouthfeel.

Holmen1 (2767) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Fra flaske på What’s Brewing smaksfest nov-14: lett uklar strågul med fint skum. Litt stram citrusaroma. Smaken er imponerende for sine beskjedne 2,8%. Selv om den nødvendigvis har en tynn kropp er dette en meget konsumeringsverdig ipa. En perfekt øl når man skal kjøre bil etterpå med god samvittighet.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2014
Fad: Får rigelig med ekstra point for at være så smagfuld på så lidt procent. Lidt tynd mundfylde men det kan man ikke gøre anderledes. Ellers så sidder denne øl lige i skabet. Fornem fornem.
