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.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, - MAR 12, 2013
Light fruity and floral hop aroma. No malt or alcohol in the nose. Very light yellow, looks almost like a lager, slightly hazy. Taste is fruity upfront, slightly sweet middle and slightly cool/minty finish with a decent amount of hop bitterness lingering in the back of the palate. Very light bodied and mildly flavored for an IPA, although has the hop bitterness to back it up. Malt is very mild as I like it in an IPA, but this one isn’t anything too special.

A beautiful beer in term of foam and carbonation. Not too bitter, banana taste et hoppiness appearing along the drinking experience. A gold plated beer...

Pint before my flight at Gatwick. Good hop aroma that really came through on cask. Definitely an above average pint on cask, although it’s much fairer to compare it against an English bitter than an American IPA.

Fules (221) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 28, 2016
Nagy, nagyon tartós hab, szűrt, borostyán szín. Komlós, virágos, tipikus angol ipás illat. Keserű, enyhén gyantás, zöldfűszeres ízek, éllenben semmi gyümölcsösség. Friss, testes, jól iható, markáns ipa.

Hazy yellow/gold color. Nice tight, lasting head. Spicy hop aroma, a bit of citrus, sweaty feet, and some yeast fruitiness. Finishes very dry and bitter. Spicy english hops, light acidity. Medium body, bit of fruitiness. Just malty enough to support the hops. Very little yeast flavor. Didn’t think it would be malty enough to handle my Indian food dinner, but it worked quite well. An above average IPA.

Tiens, il y a longtemps que je n’ai pas vu une IPA aussi pâle, claire et limpide. C’est très joli. Le nez nous offre des agrumes, de de la mangue, des conifères... En bouche, des notes herbacées donnent le ton. Puis les agrumes s’en mêlent. La finale présente une amertume douce. Tout est une question d’équilibre et de doigté. Cette bière nous prend par la main et nous dit «tu peux me boire... laisse-toi aller», Au début, je n’étais pas trop sûr. Puis la certitude s’est installée. Et à la fin j’en étais persuadé: c’est très bon! La réputation de cette bière n’est pas de la foutaise. J’ajoute juste que c’est vachement amère, sec, végétal et astringent. Bon et assez fort en amertume.Une IPA peu consensuelle tout de même.

Pours a pale yellow hazy body with a short head. Aroma of floral, tropic, pine and elderberries. Taste of floral and floral honey, elderberries, pine with a pine bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation and a bit dry mouthfeel.
