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.

Helt ok men inget häftigt direkt. Drucken vid flertal tillfällen på fat i NY. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Pours a pale biscuity gold with a white head. Aroma: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild caramel malt notes. Pleasant aroma. Taste: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild mango, peach, caramel malt flavours. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Moderate to high bitterness that lingers on the palate. A basic flavour balance, but nevertheless it is quite tasty. Would happily drink this as my regular.

33cl from bottle bought at Waitrose. Well-balanced IPA, slightly citrusy, hoppy and strong flavour

ALLOVATE (3055) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
So, now brewed under contract in Australia by the macro monster CUB. This shows in many ways from label, to aroma........, to flavour. Sudsy, messy white crown off the pour is quickly diminished to a mere island of white. Radiant, orange amber body, bright as bright. Slightly vegetal, boiled cabbage, oxidised metal and rubbery tinge to the otherwise spicy and earthy hop and biscuity malt nose. There is a hint of bay leaf and rosemary in there too. Malt forward, chewy, barnyard grain and cereal-like right through to the assertively bitter and slightly acrid finish. Light honey sweetness upfront. Chalky and mineral-like mouthfeel. Weedy, acrid hops (tetra?) last well passed their welcome. Body is light to medium with spritzy carbonation flattening to still as it head south. Really disappointing. I don't for one minute think this represents the original ale produced before s#!t hi the fan with Goose Island. Unbalanced mess!!! (33cL, BB 07/02/18, 1st Choice Liquor, Riverton)

I'm am overall very happy with this Beer. The citrus Orange taste is very light and delicate . Hopes is complete for a iBU 55 . The taste is out of this world . Thanks for destroying my taste in Heineken and Stella Artois !

Sample from a bottle at Wegman's. Aroma of citrus and bread. A little thin.

Decent IPA that was bought for guests who like hops. It is distinctly hoppy. After Irma raged through this was one of the few bottles that were left in the refrigerator when the power came back on. It served a purpose but I am not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Robe cuivrée, mousse blanche. Caramel, orange, amertume légère. Pas très floral pour le style.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 Not my cup of tea. Had the aftertaste 2 hours after finishing the one and only I had.
