Red, copper. Big foamy head. Smells like a pilsner. Watery body. Mild hops and bitterness. Some caremel and cooked vegetables and metal. Tastes a bit odd. This isn’t good but not horribly bad either. More like a bitter than an IPA.

This is usually pretty cheep to buy in tins and is a surprisingly drinkable and alright weak bitter. It has enough bitterness of taste to make it worth getting through. Nothing to get excited about but it’s ok!

Nice clear amber with off-white big frothy head. Not tgat ipaish aroma has lots woody malt, caramel, earthy. Nice malty flavor but can’t say I think it is iap, more bitterish, medium body, quite soft, medium long malty finish. Well this is just barely ok. Not good as ipa.

How in the name of jaysus can you call this an IPA? They would have sent this back. Almost very nearly got poured down the drain because it is sold as an "IPA". Call it a bitter and you’re closer. A below average bitter at that.
