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.

Rask0lnikov (506) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2016
Golden yellow colour. Medium, white head. Herbal notes, malts, hints of fruit in the aroma. Soapy first taste, hints of barley, hints of apricots. Citrussy finish. Rather medium bodied, medium carbonated, not a good IPA.

Gangstergafje (554) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
The beer links like a proper IPA. The color of the beer is amber colored. The beer has a nice cloudiness over it. On top of the beer a rather rough layer of white foam is formed, which tends to collapse rather quick. The smell of the beer is nice. It has a nice citrusy hop aroma, with a sweet tropical twist. The smell is subtle, it doesn’t have that harsh bitterness an IPA can have sometimes. It has a little rasin touch to it. There are also some pinches of pine. The taste is better than the smell. It has loss of hops, fresh citrus aromas, and a lovely bitter punch. The taste is in good balance, bitterness and fruity sweetness are perfectly together. There is also s little resinous flavor and some pine tones. The beer is a bit more full of flavor than most IPA’s. It’s not just that citrusy hop flavor, there is more to it. Quite nice.
