A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Ipa moderne d’une brasserie anglaise qui a fêté ses 10 ans en 2015, et dont la devise est « innovation - passion – knowledge » … On est preneur !! Niveau abv de 5,9 % , malt d’orge, froment, non filtré, non pasteurisé. Mon exemplaire de 50 cl était juste à date limite, à 10 jours près. Couleur jaune tendre pâle, avec un voile de levure. Bulles moyennes, disparates. Mousse à gros flocons, blanche, stable à 5 mm. Fantastique nez fruité/floral/herbeux, avec du malt clair et une pointe de beurre. 1ère bouche soyeuse à la belle entame malt/fruit/fleur. Arrière-bouche sur des agrumes, lierre, tanins, raisins blancs. 2ème au superbe ensemble malt/houblon/fleurs. Arrière-bouche avec du caractère, de la finesse, de la complexité. 3ème à la grande densité des saveurs. Arrière-bouche longue, à l’amertume précise. Longueur qui revisite tout, et nous le développe encore. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Alcool au très bon niveau pour orchestrer pareille composition. Finale qui ne désempare pas, et trouve même de nouvelles nuances. CONCLUSION : la vraie ipa, pas celle du old empire de Papy, mais la moderne avec des saveurs, des fruits, des houblons, des saveurs complexes, et tutti quanti … pardon all that kind of things …

Light gold colour, grassy aroma. Not as in your face as a west coast US ipa, but tasty, easy drinking.

Beerheart65 (1416) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Head is long and like whipped cream and I can smell the tropical fruits of this one before even starting to rate...so this one gives me a clear invitation. Strong ipa-aroma: caramel malting is strong but fruits balance. Sweet and bitter. Aroma is bit like some beer that you should dilute (God jelp that truly ever happening that we would get a beer like that). Thick and sticky aroma. Nice looks: bit hazy Honey with head like just told you and lacing also. Light to medium body, really soft nice feel, low carbonation, dry and slightly bitter, soft aromatic finish is long and dries towards end. Soft, easy to drink ipa that has light personality, could taste this in summer also, interesting and good.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma and flavor are floral, spicy, somewhat citrusy English hops and some biscuity malt. A bit of honey. Finishes fairly bitter. Light carbonation and palate. Quite nice. Glad I got a chance to try this one. I hope a real English IPA; the hop profile is very different from an American one.
