COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg and Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

English malt back bone, bittered with Anglo/Euro hops in the shape of Target and Aurora, then dry hopped with the same again. American yeast to keep esters at bay, so all that fruity punch comes just from the hops. Making a clean, bitter IPA with loads of fruity hop character, the way we think it should be.
Like any good IPA this beer will cut through spicy dishes, pair well with fried or salty foods, but best enjoyed in the sun.

Ysok02 (342) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2015
Une très belle IPA tout en élégance avec un nez de houblon, de fleurs, de fruits frais, de levure et une bouche à la fois ronde et raffraîchissante.

JorisPPattyn (8396) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
Good light yellowish, dense head over lazily carbonated clear, darker golden beer. Faint spicy/herbal nose, demure. Hops slowly coming through - UK hops mainly. Bit of grain. Quite bitter taste, growing, but rather indifferent. Dry hop bales flavour, quinine. Tad grassy in the background. Medium bodied at best, gristslickness. Indifferent says it all.
