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.

Une ipa non filtrée, non pasteurisée ŕ l’étiquette plus qu’appétissante … c’est important déjŕ. Dry hopping avec du cascade et du citra. Couleur jaune orangé abricoté, avec un léger voile. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale, et sur les parois. Mousse blanche trčs épaisse, avec une texture de blanc d’śuf battu en haut. Magnifique. Arômes de houblon superbe, malt clair, fruits blancs, orange, citron, pamplemousse rose, pointe de citron vert, ananas, légčre pointe de poivre blanc. 1čre bouche soyeuse, ŕ la trčs belle entame sur malt et épices, trčs équilibrée. Arričre-bouche ŕ l’amertume trčs complexe, splendide. 2čme aux nuances fleuries, un peu d’amandes, équilibre superbe. Arričre-bouche sur un ensemble malt/houblon prodigieux. 3čme nez qui fait penser ŕ l’Orval. On reste donc de longs moments ŕ renifler (je n’ai pas dit sniffer …). En bouche, des nuances de ręve, sur l’amertume et le malt grillé. Arričre-bouche longue, trčs soignée. Longueur oů se męlent la passion (le fruit) et l’allégresse (le sentiment). On passe par les fruits, le bois blanc, quelques épices, des houblons trčs précis, riches et sensibles. Jambes denses et fines. Levure douce, fine, fleurie. Veine trčs adaptée ŕ une ipa. Alcool trčs bien proportionné pour le genre, bien progressif, intelligent. Finale vraiment exceptionnelle, encore en progression. CONCLUSION : une bičre hyper travaillée, complexe, fine, belle... Il n’y avait donc pas que l’étiquette pour nous plaire, mais le contenu valait largement le contenant. Une ipa de ręve...

I love this beer ... can’t fault the flavour. One of the best I’ve found to balance intense hop aroma, flavour and bitterness. Fantastic hop aroma, tastes wonderful and the complexity builds on your palate, getting better and better as you sup down the glass, have another and go on your way home. One of my favourites.

Jamedra (630) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 13, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Nádherné ovocité aroma s lehkou znělkou chmele perfektně dotvářející tuto delikátní vůni. Pěna je vysoká, jemná, bílé barvy s náznaky zlatohnědé, pivo utváří krásnou čepičku. Barva samotného piva je patinově měděná, pivo je kalné obsahuje i větší zbytky sladu. Celkově pivo působí velice impozantně, je zde znát poctivost sládka a jeho práce. Chuť piva je velmi ovocitá, spíše sladšího rázu, jsou zde znát hrušky a jahody které se dobře doplňují s docela výraznou složkou alkoholu, celkově připomíná ovocnou pálenku, všechny chuťové atributy piva se velice dobře prolínají a následně pak finišují do velmi delikátní hořkosti která se lehce drží na patře a pomalu odeznívá.

erickok (4095) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 Beautiful bottle design. Orange and lively body, big pillowy white head. Sweaty IJ yeast (yes, it’s still there), sharp and citrusy hops, caramel and a light malt backbone. Full bodied with solid carbonation backup. Medium and clear bitterness. Nice dry palate, well made. Lost the cool IJ P A name, but this new recipe works great. Brilliant beer. (33cl bottle, pretty cheap as well)

Lore (1373) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 6, 2013
very hazy brownish yellow colour, huge, long lasting white head; great aroma of grass, hay, citrus, hints of figs and grape and maybe some bread; taste of a typical IPA with very slightly watery feeling - hoppy bitterness with citrussy notes (mainly grapefruit) and significant maltyness; correct IPA

CanCrusher (721) - 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...

Drought @ brewery. Very fast pour of the beer which makes it foam a lot, the bartender had to pour it 3 times until I got a normal glass. Strong citrusy hops aroma. The flavor starts sweet but becomes bitter towards the end of the sip. Just like I like my IPAs.
