Notes/Commercial Description:
As the latest addition to the brewery’s range, our I.P.A. has already made a name for itself. I.P.A. stands for India Pale Ale, a British type of brew in which the alcohol percentage and hop recipe were boosted so that the beer would survive the long sea voyage to the colonies. This recipe turned out to be a real winner and quickly became popular.

Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

From a 330ml bottle into a tulip pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden amber color with a nice thick, white, dense, head which left good lacing. Good head retention. There is light visible activity.
S: Very yeasty at first - tangy, not sharp. Over time some citrus hops pulls through with a good malt base (caramelly). Some grapefruit notes are present; quite grassy. Not the (citrus) aroma hop-bomb that one can expect from an American style IPA.
T: Sweet caramel with bready after taste. The hop taste follows the aroma. Moderately bitter, with a lightly dry finish. The bitterness hangs nicely.
M: Good body for this beer, on the thicker side for the style. Nice and smooth, and coats the mouth very well.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy deep golden colour, with a rich, dense and creamy head that leaves a big lace. Smell of tropical fruits, papaya or mango, flowers, caramel. Medium body, finish is not as bitter as one could think. Taste of tropical fruits, citrus, flowers, nuts. Very good.

3.53/5  rDev -8.3%

A: Very heady, creamy but dark orangy brown, micro carbonation flowing steadily, massive head.
S: Quite yeasty like a witbier.
T: IPAish, but doesn't have the super hoppy biting characteristic that IPA's have. It's more like a pale ale, leaning toward an IPA, strong grassy hops,
M: light sting, but generally fluffy.
O: a respectable beer, but barely an IPA.
