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 lovers 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 youll remember.

It pours a remarkably light-color, the straw shade of a cream ale. This is a bit strange, as pale ales tend to have caramel malts to provide a bit of sweetness in order to balance the hops, and caramel malts add those rich reddish browns. It is fairly clear but there is certainly a bit of haze. The off-white head is creamy and strong, but not very voluminous. The nose is strongly of Pacific northwest hops: the floral grapefruit and orange character that defines American pale ales. The flavor is at once creamy and sweet yet robust and bitter. Strong hop bitterness leads the way and doesnt let up, providing a throughline that the rest of the flavor dances around. The hops arent content to be a bit(ter) player, though. Herbal, earthy, almost vegetal flavors intermingle with serious grapefruit, mango, and citric hoppiness. Notes of light malt come through: a clean and malty, almost bready, flavor. This contributes a bit of sweetness that is frustratingly evasive. For a moment it almost seems balanced, then the bitterness rears its beautiful head.

Frisch vom Hahn auf dem Flughafen BXL getrunken. Ziemlich enttuschend. Bitterkeit besiegt die Fruchtnoten.

vinivini (1439) - BELARUS - NOV 23, 2016
Clear golden, medium white head. Average retention. Fruit nectar, melon on nose. Medium body. The flavour shows honey malts, melon and light to medium bitterness. Not impressive within the style.

YigSvartka (304) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 9, 2016
Transparent ruby yellow hue with a mid sized white head containing admirable retention. Robust, but stereotypical ipa aroma consisting of pine, grapefruit, lemon, caramel and orange. Mid bodied. More malt forward than expected. Although hops and citrus as well as mild tropical fruit are certainly present, the finish is actually rather sweet and malty. Pleasant, but typical traditional ipa.
