Not really an IPA, but I enjoyed it none the less. However seemed fairly creamy.

On cask @ Saint James of Bermondsey, London - UK. Color: clear amber beer with no carbonation and really small white foam. Smell: caramel and malt nose. No hops for sure! Taste: light body, watery caramel malt small grassy finish. Aftertaste: caramel and sweet, really small bitterness.

Small foamy white head. Clear deep amber. Sweetish, low carbons, low hops, light maltyness, light bitterness. Light and watery. Lame ale, not an IPA.

18.12.12: Cask, 1 Pint, The Pumphouse, Liverpool, England, UK.
Ciemnobursztynowe piwo o kremowej pianie. W smaku lekko wodniste i zbyt słabo goryczkowe jak na IPA.

aleksander9 (845) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2015
Deep golden with white head. Citrus, cigarette stumps and grapefruit. Sweet, ash and citric finish. Overall: cigarette stumps, never thought I would use that word to describe a beer.

Little aroma or taste - thin looking and watery with thin white head and little carbonation. Ok on tongue and in mouth. Not the best.

GuideDogSaint (841) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUL 20, 2015
Can’t believe I haven’t rated the most maligned real ale! Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom (JDW). Pours mid brown with a white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with the GK "taste". Bitter finish. Clearly not an IPAD but if you take it for what it is maybe not so bad.

Appearance is clear amber. Aroma is nearly nonexistent. Taste is pretty bland with very little bitter hops for an IPA. Overall not a good example of an IPA.
