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.

Blonde acidulée / Pas mal de mousse. Peu de complexité, un peu trop direct pour moi ... Design " Rockab’ " amusant, mais ce n’est pas ça qui fait le goût

mzaar (1802) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2014
Flaska. Dimmig mörk guldfärgad med ett stabilt smutsvitt skum. Doftar till en början som en IPA värd att springa långt för, men efterhand tar rosvatten och citronrengöringsmedel över före den tropiska fruktigheten. Men smaken bibehålls hela vägen och gör detta till en riktigt bra IPA. Ananasen och grapefrukten tillsammans med karamellen och kådan är mycket trevlig ihop. Oljig munkänsla, medel mot stor beska.

Hazy and dark blonde in appearance, yeasts visible. Decent but short-lasting froth. Nice aroma and most importantly, long-lasting smooth and flowerish taste with bit of citrus backing it up. An alcohol is hidden perfectly. It is bitter of course, as IPA should be, but not over a top and the taste is not dominated by only one note, which makes it a very good and pleasant beer to drink. A nice surprise.
