Bottle - medium cloudy yellow with lacing. Had a skunk aroma like a lot of the Mexican lagers. Did I get a stale IPA?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange amber with a foamy off white head. Citrus and pine aroma that is orange dominated. Sweet caramel malt aromas that are hugely reflected in the flavour. A very pronounced malt profile, which is different to many of the dry IPA?s that I?ve had lately. Flavour is a balance of orange marmalade, toffee and stonefruit with some lingering hop bitterness. A little sweet for my taste, but that?s my personal taste. Medium carbed and full bodied. I would have again

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy orange hue with thick fizzy white head that settled. Suspended particles. Aroma is straw, pine, lemon, peppercorn, yeast. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this isnít a very good representation of an IPA. It tastes faintly like a hoppy saison. Perhaps this is just an off bottle that was exposed to Brett, but itís not very good.
I canít find a date on the bottle. The only printing is on the base: 315 D-2 1515. Perhaps this was a bad batch.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Light citrus (more orange than graperuit) on the nose with some pine. Medium-light bodied. A touch malt heavy, maybe due to age. The hops are there, but donít quite pop...though the finish is more than adequately bitter. OK."

Bottle from world beers. Ours a hazy Amber color. Thin white head. Scent is malt and hops. Taste is a piney hoppy one. Good basic ipa.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours cloudy orange, tiny white head, floral aroma, smooth with a good IPA hop punch and medium lingering bitterness. I like it and was pleasantly surprised.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ plane. Slightly hazed bright orange pour with a white head. Aromas of pine, candied orange, and grass. Quite spicy and floral. Some caramel and marmalade as well. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side. A bit of citric acidity and a sharp pine bitterness. Lots of flowers and grass. Sweet caramel, toast, and marmalade. Slight orange rind.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma very light almost non-existent. Taste not unpleasant but a bit unbalanced - bitterness mixed with straw pale ael type flavour. Indeed more a British style ipa. Drinkable for sure but not a top choice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From QC. Hazy translucent orange-amber with thick bubbly white head. Smells of hops - floral, faint fruit, a bit of generic lager-y bitterness and corn. Tastes like a very English IPA - crisp and bitter but not much to it. Would be a pretty flavourful pale ale/lager but expect more from an IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from QClub at home. Hazy orange-amber pour. Aroma is hoppy - a bit English-y in it's tart/sourness (Golding?). Taste is light. Again, more English IPA in flavor profile - crisp hops but without much depth. A bit sweet too. Pretty plain English flavored IPA. Not terrible but wouldn't get again.
