COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What is Bouncy House? It’s the next step in our quest to brew the perfect low-alcohol, high-flavor, hoppy American ale. We learned a few things from brewing ParadoX earlier this year, like lowering the alcohol content and avoiding the terms "session" and "IPA." When you taste Bouncy House, you’ll taste a modest malt bill of North American 2-row, British pale ale malt, C-60 and Aromatic malt mashed for a refreshingly light body that leaves plenty of spotlight for a melange of Warrior, Calypso, El Dorado and Citra hops.

AnG_BrgNor (326) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 25, 2016
Bottle. Golden with small semilasting head. Aroma is fruity hops (mostly tropical and some citrus ) and malt. The same is in the taste, but caramalt is as dominating as the hops so its more on the sweet side. Low bitterness for an session.

Beer5000 (5644) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2016
355 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Aroma is mostly fruity with a hint of metal. Something here reminds me a bit of Perry. Flavor is mild, pale malt, some citric fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body and light aftertaste. Pretty straight forward, but also very close to the best before date, so I assume this was a lot better a few months ago.

BeerLuvver (91) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle 1 year past its date so should be awful. Not so. Meant to be drunk ’fresh’ as a session IPA. Pours slightly hazy with good firm head which lasts throughout. Scent slightly subdued now, orange and light piney with some malt sweetness. Flavour is now much more malt based. Sweeter, balanced (previously too upfront and bitter, hardly any malt backbone) and soft orangey, piney, herbal taste. smooth mouthfeel and less prickly. Interesting tast which (to me) prooves that you can easily age IPAs without it going off or deteriorates. It just changes, sometimes and in this case, for the better.

ALIBALI (224) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2016
Ich muss sagen das ich kein grosser Freund von Session IPAs bin und ausserdem hat die von mir verköstigte Flasche schon den langen Weg über den grossen Teich hinter sich. Ich weiss also nicht ob die Hopfenaromen noch vollwertig durchschimmern............aber es ist durchaus erstaunlich wie sehr die üppigen IBUs (61) am Gaumen haften bleiben und durchaus fruchtig und erfrischend ist der ganze Spass auch. Bemerkenswert!!!!! Aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH.... 1 fuffzig.
