COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a tasty tribute to a beloved and iconic beer style - the India Pale Ale. The style goes 200 years back - has been through every spectrum of the flavor palette and had it’s ups and downs on the IBU scale. This time around we re-created a contemporary style IPA - basically the taste of the perfect IPA right now. Understated hop flavors, fruity and crisp. The future is now.

Great India Pale Ale. Mostly citrus with oily consistency, highly drinkable and refreshing.

Rating #2390 - 2016.03.22- Can from CBI. Pours a rich golden, small white head, frothy lacing. Aroma is pineapple, passionfruit, pine cone. On the palate, similar tropical flavours, mild resin, mild pine needle. This is resiny and juicy and the ideal American IPA for 2016. Too legit to quit.

Can from Brewfest. Hazy golden orange with dense head and lace. Potent citrus tangerine melon grassy aroma. Tropical fruit and grassy crackery malts with mild citrus bitterness and dry fruity hop finish. Medium light body nicely attenuated and very soft carbo. Wicked fucking excellent. I could drink a truckload of these.

While I was pretty underwhelmed with the Retro IPA, the more hop-forward Modern counterpart gave me all the right strokes. It pours the gold-yellow color that’s so popular among, well, contemporary IPA’s. Piney and fruity aromatics. Bright, juicy tropical notes redolent of pineapple, orange, grapefruit, and melon. The fruit notes are tangy-sweet but the overall flavor gets a nice bitterness from hoppy pine resin. For me, I’ve calculated this is approximately 100x better than Retro. I guess it’s pretty clear which brewing era I belong in.

Corps jaune clair lumineux, voilé, plein de bulles; mousse très abondante et aérée, persistante et qui laisse une belle dentelle. Arômes de pamplemousse, citron, ananas; très frais, floral. Saveurs identiques avec une certaine onctuosité; une grande finesse.

Benzai (16690) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2016
Can @ home. Clear golden color, medium sized white to off-white head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is deliciously hoppy and grapefruity. Taste lightly malts, very hoppy, light grapefruit, very nice hop bitter and fruit hop bitter. Very crisp and clean with a long grapefruit bitter, bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice IPA indeed!

24/VI/17 - 33cl can from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ home - BB: n/a (2017-946)

Clear blond beer, big fizzy aery off-white head, falls down pretty quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, ripe tropical fruits, mango, some passion fruit, sweet caramel malts, bit piny and resinous, grapefruit notes, some kiwi. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, peach, pineapple juice, some banana, bitter, grapefruit, nice stuff, pretty dank as well. Aftertaste: hoppy, little malty, some caramel, bitter, more grapefruit, resinous, some citrus, dry finish, lots of pineapple juice. Me like a lot!
