COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is going nomad. An India pale lager - an IPL if you will. It transgresses with impunity, exploring and searching for unique flavours without adhering to rigid beer styles. This isn’t your typical lager. No, it’s not. We have taken a clean and crisp German lager base and added new world hops; cascade, Nelson Sauvin and citra to shine. With bittering levels at 54 IBUs, this is a lager that packs a punch. Free your mind from any preconceptions and let your taste buds wander into unchartered territory.

Bottle 33cl. Light orange cloudy with a white head. Very nice hoppy aroma, mandarine, grapefruit, citrus and a lot of it. Absolut great taste. If it wasn’t for the price, this could easily be my daily beer to drink. Long bitter finish.

Mild gusher. Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Softish palate, mildly dry and with reasonable fine carbonation. Light malts but no real lager character. Pretty hoppy - smooth skunk, orange and orange peel. Nice light tropical fruits. Soft piney finish. Nice beer.

Inoven (860) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met Benzai. Oranjerood bier, weinig schuim. Flink aroma van hop en fruit. Smaak is bitter en fruitig. Hopsmaak blijft lang hangen. Lekker bier als je van hop houdt.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2016
Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, mango, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slightmedium white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and mango; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Amazingly rich flavour, especially for its abv. One of the best IPL’s around, thanks to its strong, but not overwhelming, hop flavours. Absolutely perfect to drink on a sunny day and more than great on any other day for that matter.
