Details

Ilkley turn out some stunning beers and they are simply one of the most exciting breweries in Britain at the moment. A claim all the more impressive given they were only re-established three years ago after a 100 year absence. The philosophy is to brew world class beers distinctive in style, flavour and character and when we say passionate about beer, we mean REALLY passionate! Winners of multiple awards and brewed with the best ingredients including water from The Yorkshire Dales, English malted barley and hops sourced from all over the world. Beer Hawk's favourite! A good IPA is both high in alcohol and hopped to the gunnels and this Lotus IPA is this and more. With Summit hops from New Zealand and Cascade hops from America, strong aromas and flavours of mango, grapefruit and all-around citrus are quite prominent.

IPA should stand for I'd Purchase Again in this case as this is a very nice beer. American hops are well balanced, hints of tropical fruit.
Nice slightly different IPA

A nice juicy IPA pours a little hazy and has a potent hop flavour with a good level of bitterness, taste from hops is quite fruity with some tropical notes but also a slightly herbal lemongrass like note that gives it quite an interesting finish

Cloudy amber with a frothy, bubbly head. Aroma is fresh and fruity. Taste is light with citrus fruit, bitter with pine and a feint hint of chocolate. A perfectly drinkable IPA.

Big hit of flavour from this little beauty.

Nice mix of flavours in there from the hops, and not too bitter in the finish.
Belter!

This isn't like so many IPAs flooding the shelves from other UK brewers.. it's much closer to many from across the pond. And that's why I love this so much I think! Really interesting hops, and the bitterness is really well balanced.

Well rounded IPA. Comes on tap too, but I preferred it canned

It's an IPA.

It doesn't claim to be anything else or cut with other flavours.

What it does, it does very well.

Bumblebee sums it up nicely - a competent IPA but there are better out there.
