500ml. This beer is as much an India Pale ale in the modern context as I am a Chinaman . loads of fat malt , caramel, spicy hops in the nose . A burnt orange colour with a limp white head that would need Viagra to stand up... Flavours and palates of simplistic recipe and crap hops and malts used . the palate is not pleasant ..a sandwich of peppery stingy bullshit ’Sovereign " hops that are grassy , chewy ,limp and dead ..in bed with stale caramel from the cardboard malts , dusty yeast from some old colonels ass hole .. Fucken garbage !

500ml bottle from Waitrose, Morningside. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Aromas of marmalade, earthy hops. Taste has a chalky bite, sweet caramel, light orange. Thin body, thin finish. Dull.

Hazy deep gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry with mild fine carbonation. Light dry malts, little unsweet caramel. Bitter floralness. Mild bubblegum ester underneath. Mild dry citrus before a dry finish. Not a very good bitter and a terrible IPA!

jamestulloch (2035) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade and metal. Flavour of earth and orange. Peppery finish. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Earthy and spicy.

JorgeLee (1404) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Quite a light golden colour, didn’t raise much foam. I guess a fairly standard premium bitter, earthy citrusy bitterness, slightly thin malts, quite sulphury (I’d definitely have said Marstons not Wychwood). Overall, pleasant but a bit insipid.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Poured a clear, deep amber, with a good amount of off white head. Aroma of peal, redcurrants and floral hops. Slightly spicy flavours, with brown bread and tangerine. Finish was earth, lingering malt and some grassy hop.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Not a bad one with citrus and hops in the dominance. Mild body, mild finish, thirst quenching and quaffy. Nice one.

McTapps (5554) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle as " Duchy Organic India Pale Ale", bought at Waitrose in East Cowes / IoW. The beer pours out in a clear brown colour with airy low head and medium body. Aroma of bitter hops and herbs. Taste of fresh, bitter hops, light barley, bread, herbs, pine and mild citrus fruits. Refreshing and easy to drink, enjoyed it, although it lacks some body and deepness.
