TBone (14610) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2009
Keg@Rotterdam, Helsinki. Amber-golden color, smallish steady creamy head. Light fruity, a bit unclean sweet bread aroma. Medium-bodied. Lagerish sweet malty flavor with quite light hopping. Slighty fruity. Not much to do with IPA - like drinking a bit maltier pale lager.

Source:Bottle at the brewery.
Glass:Taster glass.
Appearance:Clear amber color with a thin off white head.
Aroma:Hint of caramel but mainly grain. Not a lot of hop presence.
Flavor:Caramel malt base with a floral finish.

Overall:I wasnít a big fan of this one. Seemed a bit disjointed.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 16, 2009
Initially disappointing, as it just doesnít "pop" like an IPA should. Seriously lacking in the hop department. However, once you stop thinking about it as an IPA and start thinking about it as just a beer, itís great. Itís very quaffable. One of those beers youíd happily have many pints of during an evening - though at 5.3% that could be an issue!

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle, purs amber with a small white head. Not much aroma, only a slight hoppyness. Slightly grassy/astringent hoppynes, with a smooth malty finish. very enjoyable.

Alasdair (76) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 13, 2009
low aroma - just a whiff of malt and grassy hops. sublte honey/caramel malt with an assertive, grassy bitterness. Better fresh I imagine.

FatPhil (11501) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2009
Keg (William K Kurvi, Helsinki)
Deep amber, small head. Simple sweet malty nose. Luscious smooth malty palate. Very simple, but utterly delightful traditional English bitter body. Hops pretty restrained, I can imagine non-Brits getting confused by the IPA name. However, whatís there is tasty, all pretty mellow. Suffers from being keg a little, I would walk over broken glass to get a real ale version of this.

KimJohansen (10396) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
Clear deep golden with a tiny off white head. Aroma had sweet malt, caramel, fruits and grassy hops. Flavour was sweet with nice malts, caramel, floral hops and fruits. Refreshing stuff that finished fairly bitter.

(Draught at Angleterre, Helsinki, on 2009-06-05) Golden and clear. Small white head. Malts and hops in aroma. Medium bodied and dry palate with medium carbonation. Malts, corn, hops, bitterness, sweetness and fruitiness in taste. Fruity, malty and bitter aftertaste.
