Belhaven Brewerys flagship American-style IPA. A bold but refreshing ale using pale malt to provide sweetness and a little Crystal malt for extra toffee and a touch of astringency. Challenger provides clean bitterness and an underlying herbal hoppyness. Hersbrucker adds a little fruit, spiciness and floral character and Cascade as the late hop adds masses of grapefruit citrus aroma and taste and floral fragrance. All three hops contribute to the bold bitterness and satisfying finish as well as the huge hop store aroma.
Ingredients: Pale malt, Cascade, Hersbrucker and Challenger hops.

Golden pour. Aroma bit that great. Can't place it, but of cheap beer. Hops are subtle, definitely a British IPA. Slight citrus flavor. Goes down smooth. A session able brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 330ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala ,srednia opada szybko. W aromacie dominuja nuty owocow tropikalnych z sosnowym akcentem w tle. W smaku owoce takie jak ananas mango i markuja sa na pierwszym planie,dlatego piwo wydaje sie slodkie...cytrusowe i sosnowe akcenty malo widoczne. Dobra ,chociaz jak dla mnie za slodka ipa.

It pours clear copper; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: pine resin, toffee, grapefruit, alcohol, and cracker. The taste is medium-light bitter. The palate is medium-light bodied, with light carbonation, and has a medium finish. Overall, its not very interesting.
