IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

allanmb (151) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
Pours clear reddish golden with small white head that disappears pretty quickly. Minimal hop aroma but what is there is citrus zest and slight pine with a good amount of crisp and sweet malt. Soft carbonation but good mouth feel. Taste is pine bitterness which fades into a gentle tropical fruit, more lime and grapefruit than pineapple/mango. A nice balance of malt before the medium bitter finish which lingers nicely

RBESG 2016 in Barcelona, on tap at Ale&Hop. 7.4% ABV. Deep golden colour. Rich beer, with a nice balance between malts and hops in both aroma and flavour. Good one.

ShivanDragon (3157) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016
Damn i have to work on my pronunciation for the brewer. Unfiltered orange/golden with a white head and amazing fresh and fruity in the aroma, lots of grapefruit, orange, mango. Taste of medium sweetness, pretty bitter biscuit malts, grapefruit, citrus, mango, soft/smooth, long bitter aftertaste, low carbo, medium body, liked this one !

BlackHaddock (6118) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
On-tap at Ale & Hop Barcelona on 8th July 2016 with the RBESG guys. Poured a clear dark golden amber with an off-white head. Aroma was a mix of citrusy fruits and malty molasses, as was the taste. Nicely balanced beer with enough going on flavour wise to make it interesting. Liked it.
