COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale was first brewed in Britain in the early 19th century. Its high alcohol content and increased hop content helped preserve the beer making it an ideal candidate for export. It was first shipped to India, where it wreaked havoc in the flying carpet industry, prompting local authorities to ban this particular mode of transport altogether.

Bottle, 330ml.

(Keg at Vastarannan Kiiski, 20170708) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had fruitiness and creamy toffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, creamy toffee, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A too sweet hoppy pale ale.

sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2017
33cl can, partagée avec la BXL tasting crew, merci Pierre T. Dorée, léger orange, col épais blanc-cassé. Arôme au nez finement houblonné, fruité noble avec un rétro-nasal orienté sur les agrumes, léger fleuri, encore C hops, base de malt arrivant comme balance. Palais est léger mettant en avant un malté pâle pils à l’accent anglais. Houblonné plutôt modéré avec un ajout fin d’amertume complété par de fines pointes de fleuri et agrumes orientées vers le pamplemousse.

berkshirejohn (6532) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
33cl can from Beer52.com. A very hazy amber pour with a loose white head; sweet tropical fruit aroma; dry piney taste to start, then some sweet mango giving a slightly cloying finish. Typical of modern American-style IPAs, but with nothing to make it stand out from the rest about from the novel wide-opening can.
