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.

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

meatmanmd (91) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 15, 2017
Golden with off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit. Tastes fruity sweet, a little citrus, very light acidic and light bitter finish. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Good, but seems to miss the style.

17wojownik (424) - Krakw, POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Butelka 330 ml. Hmm mało IPA w IPA... Smakuje bardziej jak jakiś mild. Jakkolwiek: zbalansowane, ziołowa goryczka, niewielka piana, barwa: ciemna herbata. Szału ni ma.

Aroma : citrus and grass at first, but then it all went away Appearance : Clear gold body, faint white head Taste : citrus if you focus hard enough, but close to inexistant. Acid end.

Bawelt (817) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2017
Nulle. Nez inexistant, un peu de levures, les houblons tournent sur un espce de saaz industriel (en un peu mieux). Bouche sans aucun got si ce nest un faux air agrumes.

MrHangover (4347) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 Bottle @ Fiddlers. Pours a clear copper coloured beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of leaves, grass, some herbal hoppy notes. Flavor is fairly bitter, one dimensional. Well made and malty, good hop balance but overall not too interesting. Not really getting the American side of the story here, thought it was an English ipa by the taste of it. Ow well.. decent in my book.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - FEB 25, 2017
Colore oro, velato, schiuma bianca e fine di buona persistenza. Allolfatto note lievemente fruttate. Al palato note vegetali amare, erbacee e poco fruttate. Molto beverina ma rimane una birra come unaltra.
