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).

Draught @ Pub Graali, Oulu. Deep copper beer with a small white head. Fruity aroma is grassy, hoppy and citric. Flavour is fruity and crisp with decent maltiness and bitterness. Quite nice cat piss IPA, not a sweet peachy IPA I dont like so much.

330ml bottle, lightly chilled, poured into tulip glass. Deep golden, with medium white head, some lacing. Aroma of sweet fruit salad, with grapefruit shining through. Hops dominate flavour, the malts struggling perhaps due to relatively high percentage of wheat compared to barley malt: as a result, body is somewhat thin, but still fairly well balanced. Overall, typical of the style, and very drinkable.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Draught. Clear, golden to light amber color, thin lacy head. Sweet fruity and herbal hops, fresh citrus, a hint of gooseberry. Very nice aroma, indeed! Slightly bready malts with a hint of toast, some residual sweetness but not too much. Mellow, fruity and slightly resiny bitterness in the finish. Round, slightly flat texture. Feels malty without excessive sweetness. Very good.
