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).

Bottled. Clear amber colour, moderate white well-lacing head. Aroma: biscuit, caramel, silphur, floral & fruity hops (not much of) Medium body. Bittersweet taste. Robust malts. A bit sulphury. Decent hopping still no proper hop brightness and freshness. Overall: not impressive.

Zlotta (4148) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2017
0.33 l bottle from 'AH' (Den Bosch), bottled in August 2017. Clear, amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy and slightly resiny aroma of orange jam, mango and some pine. Quite sweet, moderately bitter, fruity-grassy and slightly resiny taste of orange jam, mango, some pine and a touch of honey, followed by a medium long, dry-bitter, grassy and resiny finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very decent IPA, refreshing and well-balanced.

Holmen1 (6653) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2017
Half pint på Charlie's København nov-17: lett uklar gylden med flott skum som varer til siste dråpe. Deilig aroma og enda bedre smak med tropiske frukter, karamellkjeks, furunål, grapefrukt og aprikoser. Rund, fyldig og samtidig lett å helle over drøvelen.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 Wauw fantastisch helder diep donker gele kleur waar je de koolzuur omhoog ziet borellen. Licht geurend naar frisse fruitige bloemetjes. Smaak fris fruitig maar nergens overheersend maar ook nergens excellerend. Niet te zoet maar ook medium bitter die na zacht neigt. Dat is toch wel een min puntje voor een IPA. Maar heeft ook iets zurigs in de nasmaak. Het begon goed met de looks maar eindigt onder het gemiddelde. Had dat liever anders gezien. Maar dat was net de kern van het probleem deze ipa zag er vooral goed uit. De ambitieuze titel innovatie maakt ie ook niet waar. Voor deze jongen toch nog een mazzeltje op het eind. Voor ongelukkig gekozen namen geven we geen straf punten.

Bottle. Golden pour. Aroma has crispy malt, caramel, peach and grapefruit. Taste of bitter caramel, orange zest, some pineapple, peach and grapefruit. Not very innovative, but nice nonetheless.

Wat er nou innovatief is aan deze 'innovation' ipa blijft mij onduidelijk, maar lekker is ie wel! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A thick foam quickly dissipates revealing a cloudy amber hue. Nose is a velvety mix of malt and sweet caramel. Taste is full and rich with a malty undertone and sweet fruity notes with a biscuity texture. Quite a sweet, dry finish with a hint of hoppy bitterness lingering on.

3.7
Martinus (4737) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2017
Clear golden colour, white head. Fruity aroma, citrus, tropical fruits. Light bitter flavour, quite sweet, tropical fruits. Sweet malty finish, tropical fruits. Rather nice.
