Hoppe IPA on kauniisti punertava India Pale Ale. Vahva humalointi kunnioittaa tämän kuivan ja hedelmäisen oluen alkuperäistä brittityyliä.

Bottle 50 cl. Amber color with decent frothy white head. Taste is mix of bitterness and sweet and has notes of citrus, caramel, nuts, bread, floral. This one not that complex. Maybe too cold at the moment. Some notes of pine later on.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2014
White modest hue, almost amber body, clear, some fields of lacings. Nose walks in a fruity pine forest. Tongue swims in caramel, resin, wood, some bitter. Smooth n half dry. Ends resiny-fruity bitter-sourish. Really a nice brew. [50cl br btl abv 6%, b@Alko Kemi 26-5-2014, 4.34€, T@Rating w Finn & Rune]

Unde (344) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Clear amber looks with head going to the sides but there is beautiful lacing after every sip. Aroma has typical Earl-Grey - tea aroma which I think I find in every English IPA. Then there is grassy hops and honey malts. Taste has sweet honey malts, citrus hops and grass. Medium body with crispy carbonation.

Punkero (6) - - JUN 29, 2014 does not count
Plenty foam. Intriguingly malty aroma. Cruel bitter taste and surprisingly malty as well, but lacks hoppiness which I prefer in IPAs. Is this the original British IPA style?

Armadill0 (272) - FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear with a small white head. Aroma has a little grain and pine. Taste has grain, grapefruit, little pine and citrus. Watery mouthfeel with a weak body. Alcohol comes through a bit. A weak show.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Flaske 0,5l. Spandert av Rune og delt med ham og djoeye på seanse i WC-veien 4 Jun 14. Gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum. Litt lacing. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er tungt fruktig. Blir syrlig etter hvert og avslutter sursøtt.

Rune (7948) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
500ml bottle picked up at Alko, Kemi. Shared with djoeye and Finn. Tiny layer at the top of a clear amber coloured body. Fragile lacing. Aroma of mid-sweet malts and dried fruits. Flavoured with caramel, honey and pine. Resinous hops to the finish. Medium bodied. Nice, not that easy to drink though (Tromsø 04.06.2014).

Mad_Ferret (644) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
50cl, hemma, 16/4-14, bäst före: 20/2-15. U: Klar koppar/bärnsten, 1-2 fingrar gräddigt/bubbligt gråvitt skum. D: Marmeladig och örtigt humlig doft med apelsin/grapefruktmarmelad, lite aprikos, karamell och honung, svartvinbärsblad, mynta och svart te. S: Söt och knäckigt karamellig med syltiga citrusfrukter som i doften plus lite litchi. Beska örter med smak avmint och svart te och en lite brödig ton i eftersmaken. Medelstor till lättsam beska. M: Medelstor och lite oljigt klibbig med mjuk kolsyra. T: EN duglig, om än lite snäll IPA som tippar över lite åt det söta. drar åt det brittiska i karaktären. Inget äventyr, men ett helt klart godkänt öl.
