Demonstrational IPA by ClubGonzo, India Pale Ale, 6.1% ABV, 61 IBU.
This one pours a slightly hazy medium amber to copper body, with a large, creamy, off-white head of average lifetime. It settles as a fully lasting layer, and it laces the glass well.
The aroma is very strong, crisp and hoppy. I get pure hop pellets, pine, just ripe tropical fruits and some spices. Lovely!
The taste is light to moderate sweet with a moderate plus bitter, lingering and lovely finish. Strong flavours with lots of pine, spicy mango and hop pellets, this tastes fresh! Also, no hints of unpleasant alcohol, yay!
The body is medium, the carbonation is moderate to soft and the finish is dry.
Conclusion: A lovely IPA! So lovely that I completely forgot to take any photos! I often find IPAs to be either tropical or piney, this one is a balanced mix between the two.
