Notes/Commercial Description:
My interpretation of a traditional India Pale Ale, with a pleasant dose of bitterness and a fresh, fruity taste. Inspiring and exotic. Surprises with citrus notes and floral nuances and finishes with hints of wild honey and caramelized malt.

I enjoyed a 0.75l bottle of this on 30SEP13, in Rothenburg. It was a gift from good friend Iain (jamesw). Best by 26JUN15.

Poured a clear, golden honey color - lovely! Head was off-white/light tan and like whipped cream! It lasted and lasted, the frothy foaminess leaving super lace. Smell was slightly sweet and of exotic fruit. Body was medium to medium-plus, and it did not raise a ruckus on the tongue.

Taste led off with some subtle caramel and then some stronger honey-like sweetness. It then veers off towards tropical fruit land, with mango, green apple and some pear appearing. A bit of citrus is also in the mix, with a hint of florality. Quite nice! Thnx, Iain!!

Prosit!

750ml bottle, poured in stages into a La Chouffe
chalice. A: Orangey amber, slight haze, small
slightly tanned fast fading head, some lacing. S:
Apple, Cascade hop and slight diacetyl. T: Lots of
apple, strong notes of cassis, weaker bready
notes. The bitterness only kicks in at the finish,
kept the booze under wraps. M: Light body for
the strength, carbonation fades slightly, smooth
enough to go down well. O: An Upper Franconian
take on an American IPA, was consistent with
other European takes on the style that I’ve tried,
as it had that touch of sweetness, definitely worth
a revisit.
