Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

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 Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 2. Good piney, oily, resinous ipa with some orangey touch. Nothing exceptional but drinks fairly fine.

It pours hazy yellow color with short lasting white head. Surprisingly strong lacing. Hoppy aroma with citrus and grass. Slight caramel and toasted malts are in background. Taste is more fruity than smell. Biscuity malts and citrusy flavors with light bitterness. It finishes dry and hoppy. Sticky on the palate. Medium bodied. Hidden Abv and restricted Ibu bring about nice drinkability. Better than my expectations.

On my trip around Western Europe this was head and shoulders above any American pale ale/IPA I tried. Not to be skipped.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tall straight sided wine glass.

Look is a light orange yellow with a frothy white head on top.

Lots of Belgian yeast esters on the nose. Not much hops.

Very Belgian taste with a citrusy hop at the end.

Nice Belgian note.
