On draft at the 2015 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. Served in a hard plastic glass. Appearance is a hazy, yellow-orange with a wispy white head. Citrus hops dominate the smell. The taste is citrus forward with a malty citrus finish. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall an OK IPA, but there are so many far better choices available. I only tried this as part of a "Brewer's Collect" beer flight as part of an effort to try new things at this years festival. Worth a try? Sure.

Cloudy, light amber color. The head, while small, lasts with a fine layer of bubbles. Moderate lace in the form of Modest spots.

Leans malt with an aroma similar to a "Red" or amber offering . Little hop smell.

The taste has a strong dollop of hop bitterness which wasn't expected given the smell. Strong carbonation to a rich beer. The malt is solid and similar to the smell. The toastiness grounds the bitterness. The aftertaste is a pleasant blend of all the flavors

Wow, what a wondrous beer! The flavours dancing through your mouth are just amazing. It's a sort of combo of sophisticated Christmas pudding (but not too heavy) with deep and obvious spice notes playing around on the palette on top.

If it wasn't cEuro4 for a 33cl bottle I would have drunk this much earlier, and more often!

Poured from a 750ml bottle purchased at the real,- Gertrankemarkt in Böblingen, Germany.

- Appearance is a crystal clear, warm amber color with a nice thick head and sticky lacing.

- Very light, but pleasant hop aroma.

- Evenly balanced, almost neutral palette with a very slight hop forward flavor that fades into a malty sweet finish that makes me think – Pale Ale, but not quite INDIA Pale Ale.

- Overall, a nice beer! Truly nice, especially amongst the sea of Hefeweizens and Pilseners hamstrung by the German Beer Purity Laws that limit the creativity of craft brewers here. Although this IPA doesn’t fit the mold of the great IPAs I’ve grown accustomed to as a San Diego transplant into Germany, this is a beer that I’ll gladly buy again.

Had before a ball game at local " land of a thousand taps." Refreshing and delicious. Lots of floral notes and smooth to drink. German + IPA.... what could possibly be wrong with that?!

BraufactuM - Die Internationale Brau-Manufacturen GmbH "Progusta India Pale Ale"
on tap at The German Society of Pennsylvania Bierfest 2018

Notes: Listed at 6.8% abv. Slightly hazy orange-amber body beneath a creamy white head. Excellent head retention and very good lacing. The aroma is citrusy and resinous. The flavor delivers grainy, slightly caramelish malt with the aforementioned citrusy and resinous hops, but limited, and some grassy hops as well. A solid bitterness balances it and some residual bitterness lingers in the finish with some grainy, sweetish malt. For whatever reason the Germans seem to have a hard time duplicating IPAs but this one's pretty good anyway, kind of it's own bird if you will. Worth trying.

Had a glass at Clinton Hall with dinner. Big clean orange flavor that reminds me of soda, but there are light touches of floral citrus and earthy spice.
