The India Pale Ale was born when handfuls of fresh hops were added to barrels to preserve beer quality when shipping from England to colonial India. It is the same generous addition of hops that allow the Three Boys IPA to survive the long haul, but when drunk fresh you ca really appreciate the aroma our special selection of NZ hops creates.

I kind of liked this and being honest and true to the style that it is supposed to be. Nice bitter up front, but lacking in the middle. Finish a bit average.

Can, at Home, beautiful summer nose, citrus and apricot for me. A light Amber colour, hints of straw. Long taste sweet and hoppy at the same time. really hits the top and back of palate nicely.

Bottle. Super Liquor $8. This one is a slow burner, i tend not to start really enjoying it until half way through the bottle. However it is a good classic IPA style doesn’t have all the fruity hop notes of others. Solid rustic IPA

Looks.. Deep amber, med fluffy white head. Smells..malty.. Toffee caramel, before a little gentle hop sense.. Maybe stonefruit. Tastes..stonefruit, citrus, caramel and biscuity, finishes with a respectable dry bitterness

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep copper with a frothy white head. Really dark colour for an ipa. Nose is light resin, citrus and grassy tones. Taste is more resinous citrus hops and toffee notes. More toast malts coming through with a dry finish. Decent quaffer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
