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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Color amarillo intenso, cristalino, reflejos cobrizo. Espuma muy persistente, totalmente blanca. Qué maravilla. Aroma muy muy cítrico, a lemongrass, Es intensamente amarga pero sin pasarse, un auténtico pepino de cerveza. INDIA PALE ALE. De Jaipur a tus labios. Perfecto maridaje con cocretas de puchero.

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.

Jonb5 (417) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Pint at JDW Sutton (Surrey) A: Fairly pale, Initally cloudy which cleared into a moderate haze, moderate retention and lacing. S: Sour apples and citrus. T: A hit of bitterness which kept on giving, some apple and tomato long lingering bitter finish. M: Crisp, low carbonation bitterness which gave a slightly coarse edge. O: A good pint, it required a few sips to adjust to the bitterness but once that was done it was very quaffable.

Saeglopur (698) - 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.

CraftyBeerTour (111) - 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.

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.

Smithld1 (13) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
My hero. A pioneer of uk IPAs . Turned me on to the whole concept of an ipa. The dirge and deception of a Greene king or similar banished forever. A go to beer, a faithful lover. Eclipsed in every category by many beers but not in my heart. Ten years well spent.

One of my favorite IPAs. Always at the best. Well flavored, fruity and herbaceous. Amazing final bitterness that clean your mouth and prepare you to drink another. When you find it drink it

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

ElManana (832) - 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.
