COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal and moderately fruity hoppy aroma with notes of ripe citrus, lemon, accompanied by slightly bready cara-malt and yeasty spice. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly bready cara-malty taste with herbal and slightly fruity hops; sweet malty and mildly bitter hoppy finish, again with herbal and rather shy fruity spots. Nice brew, just a tad sweet. 17.II.14

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
0.33l bottle from the Euro Swap 2. Thanks Martinus! A massive massive off-white super fluffy head on this one! The beer itself has a little cloudiness and a dark golden orange color. Smells nice and wheat sweet. Some herbal tones also here. Soft oranges, a little bit of yeast, some traces of green banana and a little bit of white candied sugar. Doesn’t smell like your average IPA, that’s for sure, and that feelings goes for the taste as well. It’s quite bitter in the taste, but lacks that nice fruitiness. It’s to my surprise almost flat on the carbonation. Well, it’s not flat but I was expecting much more bubbles based on that enormous head and it has a good thin oily mouthfeel. It’s actually a bit harsh bitter, really grassy and it just tastes a bit, eh, not fresh. Don’t really fancy the pungent bitter aftertaste either. A bit like sipping grapefruit juice after brushing your teeth. Well, not a favorite. 11.10.2013

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

angel77 (521) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Caña en el lupulo. 05-01-01. Color rubio un poco turbio con espuma blanca poco persistente. Cuerpo medio con algo de gas y fácil de beber. Aromas algo afrutados y maltosos. Sabor ligeramente afrutado y maltoso dulce iniciales seguido de Amargor bastante contenido. Buena en general. Una belga triple y una Ipa muy bien fusionadas.

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Murky, copper brown colour with huge, compact, off-white head. Very hoppy aroma of sweet perfume, grass, herbs, pine and some vegetable, too. Taste starts sweet-bitter, grassy-herbs, reminds me of barely wine, than finished moderate bitter. Medium body, dry texture and metallic finish. Good one, indeed...

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy pale amber color with long lasting rocky off-white head, poor lacing and fizzy appearance. Aroma of citrus, flowers and pine. Taste starts with rich maltiness, follows with refreshing frutiy and vegetably notes, spicy mouthfeel and string bitter finish with long aftertaste. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. A bit plain aroma, otherwise very tast IPA...

Hermod (2810) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2014
33cl bottle, bb 07/14? Dark unclear amber, thick white head. Floral, exotic fruity aroma, hoppy and inviting. Flavor has some yeastyness as first, then the tropical fruity hops kicks in, quite bitter. Oily mouthfeel. Quite basic, well made IPA.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a big foamy dirty white head. Fruity aroma of banana, toast, resins, and grapefruit. Taste is heavy on the bitterness and low to medium sweetness. Nothing extravagant.
