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.

Had this from the tap. Not so great IPA. Smoky aromas and grape fruit. Kind of unbalanced.

Desaparecida (9) - Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2017 Rötliches Gold, sowohl in der Nase als auch am Gaumen eher malzig als hopfig. Bitter, aber wenig fruchtig. Süß, karamellig.

Marko (5753) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle. Golden-amber body, white head. Perfumey, juicy hoppy aroma bit oxidated. Caramel and fruit in the taste. Lime. Light bitter finish. Okay.

gorthaurz (59) - CROATIA - JUL 15, 2017
Pours a golden amber with a thin head. Aroma of fruits and caramel. Taste is bitter, caramel. Long bitter finish typical of IPA.

nybol (2247) - DENMARK - JUL 13, 2017
der er ikke meget ipa over denne øl. den har en tør humlet smag, uden at være så gennemtrængende som en ipa gerne er. den har en god sødme, og er meget letdrikkelig. ikke det store sus, en finøl til at slukke tørsten
