COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A couple of centuries back, IPA was made strong and hoppy to protect it on those long voyages from England to India. These days, we just make it that way because it tastes great.
An intensive five-stage hopping process delivers a rich, robust character, smooth flavour and an inviting aroma. So, while it has all the mighty BAM of the original, its surprisingly well balanced a bit like our skateboarding elephant.
Five malted barley varieties, five natural hop varieties, fruity ale yeast and water.

Muggus69 (2192) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
640mL bottle BB Oct 13 Pale gold body, bit of haze, tight white head painting nice lace in its wake. Hops dominate the aroma; mandarin, grapefruit, lime peel - a bit different from the norm. Pale malt background; some husky grain and light toastiness. Good full palate, chewy malt texture. Plenty of weight suggests a hefty abv without warmth or fusels. Plenty of hop flavour coming through on the body; citrusy lime and mandarin and grapefruit, throw in a touch of mango too. Malt is supporting with a touch of sweet cereals and golden syrup. Bitterness perhaps a bit restrained for style, but clean and provides a nice balance. Decent length. A tasty drop. Not as aggressive as many of the style tend to be, leaning towards good drinkability and nice flavour, even at a sizeable abv.

Davros (2884) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours amber with a fading white head. Nose shows sweet malt, biscuity and bready malt with earthy, resinous and floral hops leading to orange marmalade characters. Very similar flavours. Biscuity and bready malt, lots of sweetness followed by resinous hops and marmalade. Carbonation is a little low. Real nice understated English IPA.

pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2013
Not a bad offering, but not one you would go back for. It is really subdued compared to other IPAs on offer.

jonno (2557) - JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
Very British. Citrus and perfumey marmalade/toffee on the nose. Big tawny body which adds a splash of character, but is a bit too much in the long run. Toffee, bready body sits on the vegetal and herbal hops until they submit. Better than expected.

shoulderbroken (3906) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 3, 2013
RBJG2. Clear golden colour, aroma is fruity orange, big hoppiness. Taste is less hoppy, much less harsh, fruity, bit umami, maybe seafood. Big difference between smell and taste. Nice.
