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.

Botella. Presencia limpia y color dorado y gran espuma blanca densa. Aroma citrico. Sabor fino muy al estilo ingles pero con buenas trazas dulces y final resinoso.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Deceptive and belies its strength. Plenty of citrus flavours and plenty of hops. The finish gives a kick and the oily hoppiness comes through.

Saeglopur (676) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 11, 2015
Draught at Mel’s Craft Beers, Vienna.
Yellow, clear body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, white head.
Aroma of citrus candy, flowers, grass, stone fruits, some grains, slight biscuit.
Tastes of citrus, peach, candy, grass, some biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, citric, a bit zesty, a bit grassy.

Very nice, crisp and easy IPA. Not as hop-forward as others, also with grassy and grainy notes. Very well balanced. Overall not my preferred IPA style, but really enjoyable nonetheless.

Golden reddish colour. Aroma of herbs and fruits, with the same flavour. Dry aftertaste with lightly bitterness. Good stuff.

CraftyBeerTour (109) - Barcelon, SPAIN - APR 8, 2015
50cl bottle. First aroma: lime, some biscuit. Pours dark straw, with very feint haze, vibrant carbonation, white fluffy foam, dissipates but laces the glass. More sweet aroma, somewhat nettley, floral. Aroma more subtle than expected, perhaps tame, maybe my bottle been kept too long. Bitterness is refreshing, pithy, but dissipates. Creamy mouthfeel. Just a touch of juicy acidity. Icing sugar sweetness at the end. Dangerously quaffable at 5.9ABV.

ElManana (814) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2015
Bottle bought at Geers. English-style IPA, herbal and spicy dominates the fruitiness. Quite dry and light bitter. Good stuff, although I prefer the West-Coast IPA's.

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

Light passionfruit, grass, herbal pale ale with a hop oil dominant feel to it, quite nice mouth feel and very quenching, great English IPA.

beersammich (64) - Morgantown, West Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours with a decent head and a very pale yellow color(colour it is British). Taste is pretty standard pale ale with some citrus and hops finish. Not a bad beer, but nothing really stood out to me either. I had this from a bottle.

Fashawn (328) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAR 26, 2015
aroma un po’ stanco, non è freschissima. Burro, caramello ed aghi di pino. In bocca si sentono i biscotti al burro, un po’ appicicosa ma è esemplare il passaggio da dolce ad amaro, graduale, con un finale secco agli aghi di pino, molto balsamico. Veramente buona, non c’è che dire, magari fresca sarebbe tutta un’altra cosa.

ipa fatta come si deve..aroma forte e deciso,gusto amaro fino alla fine,con retrogusto amaro molto intenso..corpo medio..nonostante le note abbastanza pronunciate,scende giù con facilità disarmante! decisamente si!
