COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, its actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

33cl bottle shared at home. Somewhat pale orange with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite some hoppy bitterness with subtle fruity sweetness. Citrus, pine, tangerine, caramel and malts. Very good low alcoholic IPA.

Davros IX (80) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017
A very low ABV IPA is a fantastic idea. However, it was over carbonated and it left me feeling gassy. There was a nice short flavour from the hops, but this morphed into a sharp flavour as the taste developed in the mouth and as I drank more from the glass. Not for me.

Towey1989 (2336) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, some peach, a little mango, slight toasted malts and subtle peppery, herbal hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some peach, subtle toasted malts and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, crisp, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A light, zesty session IPA perfect for the summer. Its thin as expected but so crisp. Decent.

Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2016
330 ml bottle, as Siren Half Mast, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 2.8%. Pale golden colour, large white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of spruce tips, pine needles, tropical fruits and citrus. Light bodied as expected, but has plenty of flavour. The hoppy flavour is quite dry, with distinct piney notes, also citrus (esp. grapefruit) and some tropical fruits. Very bitter aftertaste.
