COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The hops in Innovation are the stars of the show. We used Boadicea, Columbus and Styrian Goldings to create punchy grapefruit flavours and aromas of tropical fruits. These are backed up by wheat and pale ale malted barley which add spicy, biscuit flavours and a slight touch of sweetness. The outcome is a wonderfully moreish IPA, packed full of flavour. Silver Medal Winner - The Stockholm Beer Festival 2013. (Contains barley & wheat).

Arve_Christian (4984) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway (on order), bb date 31.09.2015. Clear golden color, good foam. Aromas of malt, caramel, hops with caramel dominating ( was surprised when I checked the bb date so far away); medium intensity. Medium body & complexity. Quite high sweetness for an IPA (even English)- good bitterness balances most but not all of it. Too much caramel and sweetness in my opinion. Pretty ok

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 3, 2015
330 ml bottle. Deep amber, perfectly clear, with an average, fluffy and persistent off white head. Not the most fresh and intense aroma but clean and inviting enough: plenty of peaches and blood orange/grapefruit notes, slightly resinous and piney, a hint of mint bubblegum, overall very fruity and sweet smelling. The taste pretty much follow suite, its definitely on the sweet side, the bitterness is there but pretty moderate and not that lingering. Pleasent chewy and wheaty earthyness/spiceness, citrus forward aftertaste. Slightly watery and excellent drinkability considering the ABV, it drinks like a proper session beer. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Well made.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
33cl bottle. Pour is clear golden with thin white lacing head. Aroma mostly hoppy and citrus, some pine as well. Taste very bitter, good malts, no sweetness at all. Feels a bit oily in the mouth, little to none carbonation. Aftertaste balanced bitterness. Great, tasty and quality product.

MarkoNm (2586) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours a clear orange color, topped with a decent white head. Retention ok. Malty aroma, some notes of fruits also in there. Starts with a hint of fruity sweetness, followed by a decent hoppy body and nice bitterness in the end. A good one. Nothing extra special about it, but still nice.

villevav (458) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Kullankeltainen, nopeasti hipyv vaahto, kirkas. TUoksuu hieman mrlle nahkatakille, karamellisuutta ja humalaa. Maku alkaa hyvin katkeran humaloituna, kehittyy karamellisemmaksi ja loppuu hieman sitruksisena ja katkarana.
