COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

From a bottle bought at the Co Op in Inveraray. Just a yellow golden color, like a "pils". Disappearing white head. Good taste, could be more "hoppier".

330ml can from Sainsbury’s. Amber colour with large white head. Very standard IPA but enjoyable and well made nevertheless, bitter hops, citrus, pine.

nathanvc (541) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2017
At Delaney’s, Bruges. On International Beer Day (August 4). Pours clear dark golden with a small, frothy, white head; containing particles. Smells a bit off. The aroma contains hops, citrus, grapefruit, malt, mango and apple. It tastes light fruity sweet and light to medium bitter, with a light hoppy finish and fruity hints. Medium body, slick/watery texture, soft/flat carbonation. Very drinkable IPA with good fruity complexity, yet a wanting palate. Almost guessing it was a bad bottle. Perhaps we’ll meet again sometime...

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Tap @ De Sluyswacht, Amsterdam. Eerste reactie ziet er verdacht uit als een normaal pilsje. Iets geler kleur smaakt redelijk bitter niet echt heel hoppig. Overall redelijk maar maar vooral die ganzenhoofd als tapkraan springt er uit. Maar daar kan ik dus geen extra punten geven.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2017 For me this is what an English style IPA ought to taste like. No surprise pine needle attack when you take that first sip. Here you’re welcomed by Malty McMalt’s sweet ’Top o’ the morning’ whom will then grab mr Hops hand to create some nice umami notes. Hops then beats Malty McMalt up and you’ll have a nice bitter finish
