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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 elle ne ressemble pas vraiment à une IPA, le bois prend le dessus sur le houblon.

Robe blonde dorée, parfaitement limpide, mousse blanche quasi inexistante ! Nez maltée, caramel, biscuit, petites notes boisées. L'attaque est légèrement florale et amère, ensuite on a plutôt des notes sucrées, milelleuses, boisées. Corps liquoreux, longueur moyenne, carbo nulle, beaucoup de sucres. Bière étrange, pas mauvaise.

McSherman (677) - Aachen, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2017 Golden, klar mit weißem Schaum. Malzig, leicht süß, deiner Holznoten mit etwas Vanillearomen. Dezente Bittere. Vom Hopfenaroma ist nicht mehr viel übrig. Lecker ist's trotzdem.

Bottle (5,6%) at Smögen. Clear, pale with small head. Citruslike smell. Mildly bitter and a bit carbonated. Well balanced aftertaste. Ok beer.

czlowiekwiadro (1107) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2017
zapach lekki, dość delikatny, zioła, przyprawy, odrobina karmelu, jabłek, tytoniu, do tego słody i lekko spieczony chleb. nuty alkoholowe? kolor złoty, dość głęboki, klarowny, piana biała, skąpa i krótka, znika praktycznie bez śladu. w smaku raczej pełne, lekki karmel, przypieczony chleb, tytoń, drewno, przyprawy, pestki z jebłek, lekkie słody. dość ostry i agresywny. goryczka wyraźna, ale nie dominująca, karmel, zioła, przyprawy i lekki alkohol. nasycenie umiarkowane do niskiego. dość ostre i nieułożone.

OminouSC2 (901) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2017
Golden color, small beige head. Aromas of grass, wood, caramel and citrus. Sweet taste with caramel, wood, malt and slight hops. Bittersweet finish. Wouldn’t call it an IPA.

poech73 (449) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2017
From Aushopping: Aqueuse à l’attaque, son maltage caramel à la fois sec et doux légèrement citronné livre des saveurs de pain grillé, accompagné d’une rondeur un peu acre qu’ajoute la garde en fût de chêne. L’arrière bouche trop caramélisées laisse le palais rêche avec des notes de brûlé. Pas d’amérisation mais un usage d’extrait de houblons carrément acres. Grasse et sèche avec une petite saveur boisée mais écœurante. #415
