duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle. A little boring. Some sappy hop characters and lightly sweet honeyed malt. Once again, the pasteurisation has killed this beer as the cask version was OK.

Fin (7539) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2006
Bottled picked at Sainsburyís in the Fullers brewers selection 4 pack along with Discovery, Chiswick, and Honeydew. This was the most impressive of this four pack and was the sole reason for buying all four as I could not recall ever having had this in a bottle. Poured amber with a large white head (probably as a result of my haphazard pouring as it soon dissappeared) Some citric and sweet smells maybe some malt also, a wonderful hoppiness in the mouth and good degree of bitterness, I agree with some of the others as bottled IPA goes this really is a very good example, pity that itís rarely seen singley in bottles.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2006
This beer got me started down the road of IPA and IIPA paradise about 15 years ago. This is an excellent beer. It pours out light amber with small head. Full hop aroma. The taste is a chewy hop and malt flavor combo. Yum. At the time this beer became available I considered it hands down the best IPA you could buy.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Golden pleasant appearance.As you would expect it is quite hoppy but not as much as some ipaís.Subtle bitterness and overall very refreshing. A good but not great pale ale.

rauchbier (3617) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Deep gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Low fruitiness in the nose with some trace grapefruit-citrus hop notes. Muted sweet grain and flowery hops in the mouth. Chalky hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing really wrong wih it, just lacking any real depth.

pivnizub (8927) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle (bought in Bath, UK): Light amber to copper coloured, thin, but lacing white head; fruity-malty nose with a tinge of caramel and distinctive "english" floral hoppiness; moderate malty and fruity (traces of citrus) and distinctly bitter flavour; fruity in the dry finish, again, plus a fine, lingering hoppiness. A fine refreshing brew, a fine balance of hop, fruit and nut. Wow, these Fuller brews are so moreish...............

thebeertourist (4859) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle. Amber with a rich, big slightly yellowish head. Aroma is caramel and citrus, but also some yeastiness and roasted aromas. Starts with balanced sweet caramel, with good citrus bitterness gradually taking over. Medium-bodied, rather soft texture. Not very complex, but very drinkable.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Pours a medium amber/brown color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine/caramel. Flavor has a nice roasty caramel taste, and the some citrusy hops to finish.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2005
Bottled. Plain looking amber/brown beer with a well hopped aroma and a very dry, hopped flavour with a slight caramel feel. Overall a reasonable beer.

spnkyoumuch (24) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Iím an IPA and APA fan and the last time I had this at a restaurant from a bottle, I enjoyed it very much. Itís well balanced with bitter, sweet, and hops. It has a fresh palate even from the bottle. Quite drinkable.
