There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Shared with wim at his home. Clear amber colored beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Malty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter sweet malty bit roasted.

Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 25, 2016
Getreidig hopfiger Antrunk. Bitter-malzig, der Hopfen wird bitterer, nicht aber unbedingt aromatischer. Unauffällig, süffig, okay. 8/9/8/8/10/8

jacobarts (244) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2016
bottle. Clear amber with tiny white head. Moderate hoppy aroma (fruity) and some malts. Taste is hoppy with some spices and medium bitter. I could wish for a more powerful taste and aroma

EvNa (501) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle. Color: Clear orange golden, off white dense head. Taste: Grassy, herbs, malts and... hey, there are some hops too! Not as much as a India Pale Ale should have in my opinion. Overall not bad, but not what I expected. And a bit too sweet.

Ipa dans les "brewer’s series" de la brasserie, de 5,5 % abv et 35 ebu. Couleur ambre soutenu, à la clarté nette (et d’ailleurs sans refermentation). Bulles fines, pas très nombreuses, assez lentes. Mousse à flocons moyens, nappage à 2 mm. Arômes de malt cara, pâte d’amandes, abricot, pointe de sirop de poire. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame correcte malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume entre une brown et une pale ale, avec un peu de fruité et d’épices. 2ème avec sève de pin, pointe de pomme, tabac blond. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume correcte. 3ème où l’équilibre et l’harmonie baissent sensiblement. Arrière-bouche de pale ale. Longueur où on reste sur un pale ale correct. Jambes fines, longues. Levure un peu résineuse, basique. Alcool correct, mais il peine sur la longueur. Finale simple mais goûteuse. CONCLUSION : les cotes sur le site sont vraiment très sévères !! Cette bière, si elle n’est certes pas une ipa, reste un pale ale correct .. (ou alors, il faut coter tous les pale ale à 14 en overall, et 1 en style … ceci ne plairait pas à dame Albion !!)

mariuszek (1487) - Gdynia, POLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Herbs in aroma, head quickly gone, watery, malty, herbal bitter finish. Nothing special.

Benzai (16687) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle @ home. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops but they’re quite faint and seem a bit old. Lightly bitter. Average body and carbonation. Meh.

Cunningham (8403) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2016
A bit low on the hop profile. A decent hoppy blonde ale. Not an IPA.
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Decent dotted lacing. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Fair balance between sweetness and bitterness. Caramel malty, herbal, mild fruity and mild citric flavor.
[Bottle from Mitre in London, England]

fkoolen (1337) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear murky golden colour, white foamy head. No nose. Watery malty, English hops, light bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, dry.

JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2016
Small yellowish head, reasonably stable over hazy orange to golden beer. Sweetish, dull, caramelly nose. Véééééry IPA, indeed. Bit dusty even, old syrup. Dryish, both ever so slightly sweetish as bitterish. In the main taste, the bitterness comes out more in force, slightly metallic, only to fade in the finish and aftertaste. Quite slick, very well-carbonated, medium bodied. IPA - pffff... NZL craftbeer scene has a good reputation, but Monteith’s a letdown, IMO.
