Color covers. White foam, creamy and persistent. An aromatic and bitter beer created by British brewers to withstand the trip to India, which would quench the thirst of the troops of His Majesty. A piece of history in the bottle!

Robe ambrée et nez caramélisé. Peu fleuri pour une IPA, amertume légère et peu persistante. Peu d’arôme en bouche.

Bubeer (497) - - MAY 27, 2015
ABV 6.4%. Amber, slightly hazy. Very large light beige frothy head, good retention. Not too strong an aroma, you have too dig up the floral, some herbs, a bit of caramel. Not too hoppy, medium bitter. Well balanced. Soft carbonation, dies out quickly.

zacgillbanks (5726) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
6.4% bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, Lisbon, Portugal. This hazy orange coloured beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has spicy candy sugar and floral hoppy flavours with a malty body and a slight pineapple and woody hop finish.

KeefOz (1980) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2015
Tasted 27/3/15 at Medrosa d’Alfama, Lisbon, Portugal. Poured a murky brown toffee/amber-brown colour with a few white bubbles as a collar and no lacing. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma of floral hops with an underlying malt sweetness. Taste has a nice light choppy bitterness. Light to medium body. Dry, very refreshing with a lingering soft hops finish but much softer than a typical IPA. Good for a Portuguese beer. Must be difficult to retail beer in a market dominated by grapes.

bytemesis (9606) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with a large creamy beige head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is malty, breath, nutty, hints of grass. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, apple tartness, lots of acidity. Lightish body, high carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Definitely a British IPA in style, and not a good one

LaViolette (118) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 I am quite disappointed by this Portuguese IPA. Interesting nose, different from what I know, it smells a bit like glue ;) but then the plate doesn’t follow. Not bad, but nothing great about it...

cbnz (107) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle @ Tapas 24 in Porto

Appearance: Hazy amber-brown
Aroma: Sweet malt heavy aroma masking the hops
Taste: Caramel malts, light fruit, but lacking bitterness
Palate: Medium body

KnutAlbert (6815) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2014
Haxy brown, huge rocky head, a litle yeast residue. Bittersweet, rich flavor. Anise, bitter oranges, mango. Tones of sulphur, but not ina an unpleasant way.
