COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

jmgreenuk (8811) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a cloudy deep amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grassy and floral. The flavour is medium bitter, with lots of watered down grass and a nice smooth finish. There is less bitterness and spice in this beer when compared to the more mainstream IPAs, so it needs to be served cold. Its quite drinkable and like no other IPA Ive ever tasted!

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 22, 2014
bottle, picked up as part of a mixed 4 pack of australian single hops at bws broadbeach. hazy amber with a modest head; had this one last and it seemed like a mix of the other 3 - the vic secret, summer and galaxy. passionfruit in the aroma, plenty of butterscotch sweetness, light bitterness, all quite pleasant

mkel07 (5679) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2011
330ml bottle. There is a fairly big fluffy head in the initial pour with soem lacing left as it settles. Golden amber in colour with some haziness. Looks inviting in the glass and the big punchy citrus hop aromas as to the anticipation and expectation. Passionfruit and peach also play a role in the fruitiness of the aroma. Zippy and zesty in the mouth with that dry mouth puckering flavour that a good IPA has. Probably one of the best beers that I have had from Bridge Road, stella in every way.

jbruner (4566) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of resinous citrus notes, hint of grape, pineapple, and flowers. Taste follows, bit less than the nose, malty backbone. Mild bitterness that falls off quickly, solid beer.

hawthorne00 (3808) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 Growler. Gold with a modest white head. Aroma of passionfruit and grapefruit, light biscuit, some window-cleaner. Taste is full of fruits - passionfruit, melon with quite sharp grapefruit bitterness. Some white pepper at the end. Not really reminiscent of noble hops but somewhat restrained fruit salad character. Clinical but lovely hopshow. [3.7] A bit less vibrant in the bottle, but only -0.1.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a small white head. Mass amounts of passionfruit, blood orange and grapefruit on the nose, very tropical. Less in the taste. Grapefruit and only a tluch of bitterness. Solid single hop. Enjoyed this one

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2011
Grapefruit seems to be the main character coming across in the taste for me. Good bitterness, medium body.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2011
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows masses of fruity hops and sweet malt. Big honey, melon and peach blossom notes. Incredibly sweet smelling. Similar sweet, malty flavours, lots more caramel and cookie dough along with resinous, piny hops. A spicy/grassy noble character shows later, especially in the bold, sharp bitterness. Unfortunately that bitterness has an unpleasant, harsh metallic note to it. Could use carbonation. Seems to me like stella hops are great for aroma, but not so much for bittering....
