Ölbeat 044: Maku IPA

Brewery: Maku Brewing
Country: Finland
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 7,3 %
'Maku' means taste - the IPA has it
What about the beer?
Colour is copper orange with two-finger thick natural white head. Aroma has fresh orange and lemon. Taste gives a fresh and smooth hoppy first bite. After the start strong fruity lemon gets in front with gently bitter background. Towards the end a slice of grapefruit joins the party. Aftertaste is piny dry with some bitterness.

Excellent and enjoyable quality IPA: fresh citrus fruits have the lead and smoothly strong hops follow with discipline. For some reason I have managed to dodge the Maku brews for some time. Now I can admit my mistake and stupidity - won't be doing that anymore.


Drinking this kind of fine fruity and fresh India Pale Ale makes me want to listen to a fresh jazzy pop song and give an applause to the brewers. How about you?
