COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottled, pasteurised, regular
See separate cask listing for rating the limited cask special
India Pale Ale first made its name in the 19th century. Here’s hoping our pioneering IPA can make its mark too.
Its fervent hoppy character hails from the unique addition of large quantities of hops at three separate points during brewing. The result is a beer that’s rounded yet refreshing, with delicate floral notes and oodles of zesty freshness.

Colour
Pale gold
Smell
Freshly mown grass, clean grapefruit and pine trees
Taste
Rich vanilla from the oak, with lots of zestness and a light bitterness from the hops
Finish
Full bodies, but still crisp and refreshing.

330ml bottle purchased in Asda. Pours deep gold with a reasonable head. Aroma is predominantly vanilla and caramel. This light sweetness is noticeable in flavour also but is countered by a medium/high bitterness from the hops. IMO the claimed "layers of zesty flavour" from the hops do not appear, instead being muted by the typical I&G vanilla/oak flavour. A quality beer but again not really my type of quality beer.

Dégustée dans un verre Straffe hendick: belle robe dorée surmontée d’une mousse blanche peu persistante avec une carbonatation moyenne. Le nez nous offre des arômes houblonnés et maltés avec une fine pointe de vanille.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec des notes liquoreuses et une légère amertume qui disparaît en finale car la douceur l’emporte sur l’ensemble.Une bière plus agréable au début qu’à la fin.

Dégustée dans un verre Straffe Hendrick. Température de début 6 à 7°. Robe orangée surmontée d’une mousse blanche très peu persistante; carbonatation moyenne. Nez agréable: houblonné mais sans excès pour une IPA et agrémenté de notes fruitées; le bouquet aromatique est léger et raffiné dans son ensemble. Le goût apporte des saveurs d’écorces d’oranges accompagnées de quelques notes piquantes et boisées.L’équilibre douceur/amertume est plutôt bien réussi. La finale n’est pas très longue et dominée par les houblons. Une bière qui n’est pas une vraie IPA mais qui se laisse bien boire.

Not sure what was special about that one. Missed a bit of flavour and lacks the usual I&G smoothness. Still ok.

Fairly pale golden colour, thin white head. Looks a lot like lager. Aroma is quite grassy with a bit of fresh citrus. Feels smooth, not particularly bitter. Dry finish.
