Smells of not much, metallic taste with very little flavor. The aftertaste that lingers there for a while anyway. A moderate beer I think. It feels watery but still there is little flavor.

mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Pretty awful. Aroma is the best thing about this and even that is synthetic. Fizzes up into glass with a headful of bubbles which quickly disappears. Tastes like a cheap lager with a dash of lemonade rather than an IPA and has the same effect on the palate. Won’t be buying this again.

"There’s something to be said for nuanced beers, but I don’t think that’s the case here. This one just seems...weak. Not bad, but its a little watery and lifeless. decent balance between Carmel malt and lightly bitter earthy hops. No idea of the age."

vanelst (150) - AUSTRIA - JUL 14, 2014
Boring and bland brew. No Ipa at all, more like a lame lager with some hop and caramel notes. I tasted dishwater better than this thin, watery excuse for a beer. Didn´t finnish it.

ogivlado (5707) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, malty caramel nose. Sweet malty, caramel and pleasant fruity hoppy with mild nutty notes in the finish. Not os dry but fair bitter finish. Not bad at all.

martjoobolut (707) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 16, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours clear red amber-copper with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is caramel, malt, sweetness, and English hops. Taste is malt, caramel sweetness with some bitterness thrown in. Finish is short bitterness. Overall: not awful, but also not really good.

Rahmer (9) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Definitely I’d like that there was more hoppy and rich flavour, but this one have a strengths though. Gentle sweet caramel aroma and smooth taste with notes of hops, milk chocolate or coffee (difficult to catch) and fruit nuance. Not too bad, but bored... a little.

Greene King IPA Export has a thin-to-medium off-white head, some lacing left on the glass, noticeable bubble streams, and a rather murky, amber-brown appearance. The aroma is of rich, sweet, brown bread crust, yeast, caramel candy, and hop resin. Taste is the same, with some mellow bitterness and a fairly odd earthiness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit chewy, and Greene King IPA Export finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and interesting. RJT

hub66 (112) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Belle couleur brune dorée; arômes et goût intéressant mais trop discrets; un peu de malt et de houblon; finale légèrement amère; une bonne bière sans plus,

Marcius (207) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Appearance with copper color and low head. Medium Aroma: caramel, aged wood and burnt sugar. In the mouth, it is a lightweight IPA without much personality, the caramel is more evident than the hops. But it was worth the tasting.
