A copper colored top fermented beer, brewed with 3 English hops, that gives the spicy flavor. With a lovely aroma of flowers and a hint of spring.

IPA "India Pale Ale" originates around 1790, when India was an English colony. To make it possible for the beer to travel that far - it was added a lot of hops and brewed to a higher gravity, which both increased the life of the beer.
Our "Pearl of India" is strongly inspired of the original IPA, but shaped to fit the Danish palate.

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 22, 2008
Aarhus, DK Bottled I seems like Søgaard generelly makes beers weak in taste - this included. Low on malt and onedimensional hopping

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2008
Dark yellow colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Spices, hops and lemon dominate this aroma with some cardboard, sweet orange also here. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with lemony fruits and sweetness, aftertaste turns to dry one with cardboard and hops. Well, nice try, still misses lots of traditional IPA-notes.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2007
Bottled. Thanks Reza, Tre Små Rum. Hazy orange colour. Not much hops here in aroma. Weird flavour with lots of smoke. What went wrong? New beer style? There is smoke up front, secondly malt and then a subtle hoppy touch in flavour as well as in finish. Still, bitterness is taken down by the smoke.
