COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bridge Road Brewers have created their own take on a more traditional beer style - India Pale Ale, originally a heavily hopped beer developed for the long haul from England to India by boat. Fresh hops were added to the barrel and the alcohol was bolstered to ensure the beer went the distance on the high seas. Bling, is a huge beer, with all the bells and whistles. This ale is armed to the teeth with hops and studded with 24 carrot modified malts. At Bridge Road we’ve gone all out to make an IPA that screams hops and malt but still keeps balance in mind. Try matching this beer it with anything spicy or enjoy this malt and hop mouth full on its own. We love it, and hope you can too.

at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle. Neck worryingly void of aroma. On pouring there’s a pleasing deep rich mango scent. Comes up between amber and ruby. Plenty of complex malts but it’s balanced off with a punchy hop character that has a nice heady botanical quality if you stop to look for it. Very up front beer with plenty of flavour and plenty to think about as you drink it. Something for everyone here but no-one is going to say this is their favourite.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cloudy amber pour with a big frothy white head, aroma has spice, along with caramel, some dirty malts, tangerine, malt biscuit, ok,

colui72 (1032) - HONG KONG - DEC 13, 2015
Hazy golden, very citric and hoppy aroma. Tastes ok, citrus, tropical fruits, very hoppy, medium high bitterness. Not an amazing IPA, but quaffable.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 30, 2015
bottle from warners at the bay. lightly hazed golden with a lingering head; tropical fruit salad aroma; some pine resin, weis bars, decent hit of bitterness; still feels like it’s lacking a bit in oomph, though. will have to try the bling bling soon

ShaneJ (896) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle from Plonk. Dark amber-copper, thick off-white head, loads of passionfruit, grapefruit, pine, something sweet (maybe peach), caramel malt, resiney/piney bitterness, medium body, quite bitter finish. Very good.

3.4
Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle. Fresh and fruity enough, with bold passionfruit and peach. Medium to high carbonation, but a little on the thin side. Decent sessional IPA.

4.1
floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 5, 2015
Comes in a triple pack of 330ml bottles and a Spiegelau IPA glass. Looks great with a hazy copper-amber body and a large foamy off-white head that displays great retention and lace. Aroma is robust biscuity caramel malts with plenty of balancing citrus and pine resinous hops and this is transferred to the palate which is medium bodied and lively. Finish is resinous and bitter but not overpowering. Balanced and very enjoyable.

3.7
TedE (1332) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015
330 ml bottle into glass. Robust hop nose, a little malt as well. Copper beer with solid two finger white head. A few bubbles ascending. Bitter chalky mouthfeel. Even more bitter finish. Leaves a beautiful floral hop aftertaste. Very nice.

3.7
magpieken (129) - - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Bottled 2/9/14. Pours a medium copper colour with a towering off white head which lasted well and left some excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit and malt. Aroma was quite intense on opening the bottle but in the glass shows some restraint. Medium bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth and a gentle bitter finish. Very approachable. 8.

Capa (3302) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Dark orange with a white head. Resin hop flavor with light caramel sweetness. Medium chewy body. Bitter finish. Very good.
