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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

On-tap at Brouwerij 't Ij, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose-grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of grapefruit and orange citrus along with some hints of citric sourness and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of bitterness. The unfiltered nature makes it slightly chewy.
O: This beer is nice and flavorful and has lots of citrus without tons of bitterness. It is rather easy to drink.

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.

On tap at t'IJ brewery, Amsterdam.

Dark amber with creamy lacey off-white head.
Yeasty tang, some toffee and some orange zest.
Round sweet dough with big lemon and tangerine hops.
Earthy yeast finish, mango candy linger.
Lt-med, slight chew, round.

Lighter than the summer blonde somehow. Almost an APA. Clean citrussy hit with good fruitiness.
