Belhaven Brewery’s 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.

Too sugary and too chemical and cheap taste. I am pretty sure this is the last bottle of this beer for me.

Neka vas ovaj IPA u nazivu ne zavara, ovo nije IPA nego bitter. Vrlo dobar bitter, puno bolji od onih desetak bittera što je bilo za kupit u Lidlu. Dobar okus sa dodatkom gorčine.

Für ein IPA Bier ist es ganz ok! Nicht all zu bitter , und trotzdem nicht all zu fest! 4.5 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Acquistata @Fieradellartigianato in Milano. Colore ambrato chiaro e brillante.  Bel cappello di schiuma bianca compatta, pannosa, con molte bollicine e persistente. Al naso sentori caramellati e leggermente di frutti rossi. In bocca sapore decisamente maltato e resinoso-erbaceo. Le note agrumate fanno capolino sul finale, rendendolo abbastanza secco e luppolato. Carbonazione medio-alta. Buon corpo. Scaldandosi le note maltate si fanno sempre più marcate, comunque sempre ben accompagnate dal fresco sapore fruttato.

33 cl bottle. Clear, golden amber, medium white head, nice lacing, medium-high carbonation. Clearly it's a hoppy beer, with floral and grassy notes to the nose. Medium mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Taste is very spicy. To me, it's totally dominated by black pepper, crystal malts shows off in the aftertaste. A bottling date would be nice, Belhaven!!

Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is floral and grassy. Taste is moderately bitter up front with moderate sweetness in the finish. There are notes of floral hops, resin, honey, and nutty malt. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Not bad but not an American ipa. The hops taste German and the mouthfeel is English.

From 0.33 l bottle. Pours yellowish to copper with nice white head, that quickly disappears. Nice smell of hops. Medium body, with some citrus aroma. Bit bitter, not too much. Kind of sweet aftertaste with notes of grapefruit. Not bad IPA.

herrklemann (517) - Graz, AUSTRIA - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle. Medium white head on a clear amber body. Nice, tart citric aroma, resin, a bit floral and perfumey, light nail polish remover. Starts out tart, with light sweetness, just a little bitterness. Slick, soft medium body with lively carbonation. Surprisingly nice!

alex_leit (5316) - Minsk, BELARUS - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle. Aroma hoppy with pleasant malt hues. Taste: sweetish, malty, slightly fruity, with nuts, mild hop bitterness.
