3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber colour with creamy white head. Hoppy aroma, taste aswell with some grains. Medium bodied nicely balanced beer. Not very complex and definitely not hoppy enough to be titled as an IPA in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Bottle, 500ml. Clear amber/orange with a crispy white head with medium retention (for an English ale) and good lacing. Deep grainy and hoppy aroma. Hints of citrus, cereal, sweet malts and sour yeast. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and bitter towards the very finish. A touch watery. This isn’t the Fuller’s IPA I remember from a while back, perhaps the recipe was changed. Seems less hoppy and more grainy than before. I definitely enjoyed it less than I used to.

23-JAN-2010, bottle @home from "Systembolaget".
Lovely orange/golden color with no head.
Not much nose, but som flowery notes on the taste. Quite sweet, not especially bitter for an IPA, but this is the english way. I much prefer the american interpretation.
Fine, boring beer.

Ótima cerveja IPA. A aparência é muito bonita, laranja turva, com espuma ambar de ótima formação. A garrafa é impecável. Cheiro muito bom de lúpulo aromático. Refrescante. amargor intenso e bem encaixado. Retrogosto longo. Aveludada.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow going towards orange. Quite shimmering. Small white head that sticks around for a while. Some lacings.
The smell is not as powerful as I had anticipated. Plenty of malts and butterscotch. Decent amount of floral and citric hop aromas. Some fresh carrots as well.
There’s plenty of malts and sweet flavors in the taste. Quite bready. Butterscotch, toast, caramel. Tasty hop flavors - lemon peel and grapefruit. Some herbs and carrots. Slightly earthy. The bitterness in the finish has somewhat of a calming feel to it - quite restrained, yet still prominent. Some faint spices and a hint of mineral round everything of.
Medium body. Plenty of carbonation. Still, it feels quite dull in the mouth.
A refreshing English IPA - very easy to drink. But considering that it’s an IPA, it’s aromas and flavors are slightly too restrained, I think. The hop character could have been more pronounced, although English IPA:s usually don’t pack as much hops as the American ones do. Also, I think the diacetyl level is slightly too high in this one. But still, a good beer.

Draught (500 ml) at Opus K, Lohja, Finland. Clear deep golden colour with thin, almost no head. Very malty and bready aroma with some dry hoppiness. Dry hoppy flavour with some sourness and dry aftertaste. Rather thin and easy-to-drink.
