COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

Nocturne (888) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2012
On tap at The Brew House, Altrincham. Amber with a fluffly white head. Lots of lacing as the glass empties. Big pine and tropical aroma. Grapefruit stands out in particular along with other citrus and tropical fruits resulting in a wonderful taste profile leading to a lingering tropical finish. Lots of hop bitterness and some slight stickiness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and even chewy at times. Wondeful IPA and very refreshing on a hot day, but I’d like to try it on cask before I cast a final judgement.

espenra (884) - Kurland, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2013
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a slightly pale golden colour with a medium big white foamy head that setted down fast in the glass. Aroma is medium hoppy. Notes of citrus, pine and some honey. Flavour is medium bitter with a decent amount of hops, citrus and pine. Not much honey at first, but after a while the honey shows up. Medium long bitterness. A bit disappointing really as I had read alot about this beer and was expecting more from the aroma and flavour although it’s far from a bad IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Halmgul. Ganska ren i stilen. Dansk, smakar som all annan ipa från Danmark. Dom har verkligen något gemensamt. Edit: Haha, skön humor att den kommer från England. Men raten får stå kvar

500 ml bottle bought at Aeon in Skyline Plaza, Tsuen Wan.

Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with traces of yeast sediments; Two finger head and crumpet white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Very fragrant and sweet aroma of fresh grapefruit which can be smelt a feet away, with ale malt, orange, honey, faint jackfruit and light lime; Medium sweet taste of full ale malt, with grapefruit, dry biscuits, yeast, liquorices, lime and herbal hops; Mid to light body, crisp and slightly slick palate; Taste profile is dry, crisp and biscuity full ale malt. Mouth feel is rich, augmentedby good wheat crispness and moderately strong liquorices. Grapefruit taste is sharp but not as fresh as the aroma. It’s getting there… Hoppiness is very fragrant grapefruit and light orange in nose, strong herbal hops and not so fleshy grapefruit taste. Liquorices is moderate, good balance to sweetness for a chop licking astringent finish;Very dry after taste, crispy and pretty refreshing to mouth.

Comments: A typical and traditional IPA - fragrant grapefruit nose, very malty, good balance of sweetness with bitterness - plus good dose of wheaty crispness and yeasty dryness. It may not be adventurous as contemporary micro IPAs, still a well make and all round solid pleaser for any seasons. Good stuff!

Bue en bouteille de 50Cl. Peu de bulles mais arômes intéressants dans la douceur. Houblon présent et finale plus sucrée.

Bu en bouteille de 50cl, une couleur dorée et une mousse avec une bonne tenue, elle étéait un cran en dessous en goût de ce que j’avais bu, peu de bulles, elle avait un simple goût sur le litchi, juste bien.
