Robe blonde dore, limpide, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Les zenteurs sont trs citronnes, et lgrement maltes. Bouche agrable, galement sur le citron, un poil pice, amertume moyenne, faible pour le style. Longueur moyenne, corps moyen, carbo faible. Une "IPA" plutt de style anglaise, agrable sans tre exceptionnelle.

From Club del Gourmet of Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not bad, but traditional english hops arent as tasty nor aromatic as modern ones from usa, new zealand, etc.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2016 Lipa traditionnelle est vraiment un genre part, difficilement rapprochable des autres IPA. Elle a tout dune bitter langlaise, nez et bouche malts, caramel, petite amertume, petites touches pices caractristique, faible carbonatation. L"IPA et celle ci en particulier aurait un nez plus houblonn et lgrement plus fruite et amre en bouche.Mais cest trs lger.Cest un prototype de lIPA anglaise qui nest pus trop mon genre.

Huge floral hit on the nose. Taste of floral spicey hops dominates, quite sweet, low bitternes and a little malt. As flowery as it gets.

corkyrory66 (1725) - BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2016
Ipa so british avec houblons du Kent Fuggles et Goldings. Orge et bl pour un niveau abv intressant de 7,4 %. Mon exemplaire tait 2 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambre roux abricot, la clart nette. Bulles fines par milliers, en multiples fontaines, superbe. Mousse beige clair, soyeuse, stable 3 mm. Armes de malt cara, grill, bois de ft, vin blanc, poire cuite, pointe de cumin. 1re bouche souple la belle entame malt/houblon, amertume un peu imprcise. Arrire-bouche avec un ct lgrement fum!! 2me avec une belle texture malte, petit ct vineux. Arrire-bouche lamertume donnant des notes boises par moments. 3me lensemble avec un ct lgrement portoris!! Arrire-bouche belle, mais hors sujet. Longueur qui continue sur la mme ligne. Jambes serres, groupes, assez grasses. Levure douce, un rien pice, ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il est sans grande action sur lquilibre. Finale sans envergure. CONCLUSION: une ipa anglaise hors sujet!! Cest un comble Son ct bois et vineux enlve les touches damertume qui devaient venir des beaux houblons employs ...

Bottled 33cl. Pours a very clear yellow beer, low white head. Nose is very low, mainly sugar / bubble gum. Taste is mainly alcohol. A very uninteresting product.

Excelente exemplo de uma IPA original. Equilibrada, com aroma e amargor caractersticos dos lpulos ingleses.

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Malty backbone, typical English IPA, kind of sweet, not too bitter. Fair enough.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
A cloudy, orange colored beer with a firm, compact, also slightly orange colored layer of foam. The aroma is somewhat sour, and contains traces of citrus fruits. It tastes quite bitter, sour, and resembles some licorice. Quite complex. Is aftertaste is like licorice, and moves on into a bitterness with the touch of nuts. Een troebel, oranje bier met een stevige, compacte, ook lichtoranje gekleurde schuimlaag. Het aroma is zuur met de hint van citrusvruchten. De smaak is bitter, zuur, en heeft de tinten van drop. Vrij complex dus. De nasmaak is dorpachtig, en laat een bitterheid achter met de hint van noten.
