3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Expecting an IPA, getting a pint of the ordinary, perfumy hops, earthy, jam, nutty and grainy, too light of a malt backbone to accompany the hops, first disappointment from this quality brewery!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Crisp and refreshing, not really as hoppy as the IPAís iím used to. Clear presence of english hops and a nice maltyness. Tastes really good, and balanced with a nice carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Generally a good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5l bottle from British Store, Budapest. Rated on: 11/18/2011. Clear amber color with medium white head. Caramel, resin, floral aroma. Medium bitter taste. Medium body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Long hoppy bitter finish. The label said, itís an IPA, but itís far away from what I call IPA. Itís delicious and comfortable, but - as I think - the American IPAs have better aroma and taste besause of the legendary American hops! To sum up, itís a good ESB.
