CarlJonas (231) - Linköping, - NOV 14, 2012
(Bottle) Clear amber coloured liquid with a white head that leaves some lacing. Smells like breakfast; apricot marmalade, toast, a hint of tea and for desert a big chunk of toffee. Toasty malt flavour with a medium bitterness that lingers nicely for a long dry finish. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. A very solid and, most of all, very British beer.

Blueshawk (397) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2016
- bernstein-trübe Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Hopfen, Malz, Brot, Gras und eine Idee Citrus - etwas zurückhaltende Carbonisierung - für ein Bier mit dem Anspruch ein IPA zu sein, ist der Antrunk völlig enttäuschend - die Hopfenbitternis steht klar im Vordergrund und hat ein schönes, passendes Malzbett - fruchtige Aromen sind hier und im weiteren Verlauf leider völlig Fehlanzeige - das ganze Bier entwickelt von Anfang an eine schöne und cremige Textur - aber es bleibt auch einseitig malzig-bitter, ohne Tiefgang oder weiter zu ent- deckende Aromen - im Abgang noch eine leicht erdige Struktur und man bleibt etwas verwirrt (Thema IPA) - aber nicht unbedingt enttäuscht - zurück Fazit: Gutes Pale Ale, aber in keinem Fall ein IPA

kajser27 (1406) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 7, 2016
Clear, deep gold to copper colored, medium white frothy head, nice lacing. Aroma is of malt, biscuit, light caramel, citrus lemony and herbal, light grassy notes. Taste is medium sweet malt and biscuit, bit caramel, moderate lemony-orange citrus, bit fruity and grassy hoppy notes, medium bitterness, dry finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Not as hoppy as American IPAs but a proper Englishman!

KevinCartes (10) - Los Angeles, CHILE - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle from Jumbo Los Ángeles, Chile. Pours amber and clear with a light head. Aroma has notes of resin and citrus hops, and some smells of the caramel of the malt. The taste is quite similar, hoppy like most of IPAs, but in this case flavors of hops don’t flood the beer. I expected notes of hops more powerful but this is just a personal opinion. I think it’s a "light" IPA. In fact, it has just 5,3% ABV. Also, I can feel notes of caramel and toffee. Non esters. Non yeasty flavors.

Not my sort of IPA, Poured a medium amber, malty pallet and ok bitterness but was just lacking something. easy to drink but wanted more of the classic big english IPA bite

Rei00 (66) - CHILE - SEP 8, 2016
Una IPA de color miel turbio con espuma suave. Su aroma es frutal intenso con toques de pomelo, mandarinas y durazno que mantiene transversalmente la esencia a lúpulo. Su sabor es cítrico con toques de durazno y pepino, con un amargor intenso y persistente que se disipa equilibradamente dejando un sabor dulce y cremoso al final. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sound67 (702) - Offenbach, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. *** Colour: Hazy amber, big off-white head. *** Nose: Mix of pinewood and toffee notes, some spices, orange peel. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, a bit watery. Medium carbonation. *** Taste: Tropical fruit, mild pinewood, some leather, hints of toffee and licorice at first. hops and toffee malt in the intriguing middle, again with a bit of licorice. Medicinal notes, pine and resin in the finish, long after taste of toffee, pine and some lemon. *** Impressions: Different label, same complex, fascinating beer as always. Lots of different spices, fine malty depth, and still unmistakeably an IPA. Not only one of Fuller’s best beers, but one of the best of its style overall. Great beer!

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle - Clear light amber colour, medium, mostly lasting off-white head. Lightly toasted malty aromas, some biscuit, caramel and herbal and fruity hops. Taste is bittersweet with caramel, lightly toasted malts, bread and fruity notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, a bit grassy and gently bitter finish. Nice, well balanced classic English IPA.

exeter (511) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a thin but long lasting head and good lace. The taste is bready malts, caramel, hint of citrus and bitterness at the end. Doesn’t over coat your tongue making it more refreshing than most IPA’s.

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - AUG 18, 2016
Mostly old school style with woody overtones and layers of daggy red fruits. Metal shavings back palate. Quite pleasant but not compelling. (Villa Market 175 baht).

kaserov (225) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2016
Sin mucho aroma (malta, alcohol). Sin demasiada espuma. Escasa carbonatación. Ni rastro de lúpulos o de algo distintivo en el sabor. Sosa, mediocre, aburrida.
