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.

brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. There’s a really sweet nose to this. Dominated by bread and toasted malt with a light floral hoppiness. Some hints of pine in the background. The flavor has just a bit of hop bitterness. Otherwise, intense malty sweetness of toast and toffee. A weird spice note, perhaps from the yeast strain? A really sweet citrus character, too.

pityu (17) - HUNGARY - MAY 29, 2015
Bottled - Hazy amber colour with decent off-white head. Aroma is floral and citrussy with some caramel and malty sweetness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation with long dry finish. Nice fruity hop aromas and flavors. A little bit of yeasty sidetaste can be noticed, but I think, this is a well balanced, nice IPA. Good job!

Drank from a bottle. Very nice! The hops are strong but not rough. In addition to the fruits, there is slight yeastiness in the taste.
