A solid session beer, not much more needs to be said. The balance of hops, malt and alcohol good for a longer night's drinking.

Earthy, dried fruit aromas and stone fruit and fig tasting notes, lightly carbed and a light maltiness. Ok.

ERB92 (403) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2014
Fruits, caramel and grass in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter, Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall an OK English style IPA, but a bit bland.

Drank as a draught. Not at all like an ipa. Maybe like a bitter, not not bitter. Better than the usual lagers though.

UXO (419) - CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of off-white head diminishing quickly to a thick cap, minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is bready malt, grassy weedy hops. (5/10) Taste is medium bitter, mild sweet. (5/10) Thin watery body, moderate to low carbonation, semi-dry finish. (3/5) This makes me feel better about Canada. For the longest time, I’ve been deeply annoyed by the naming of Alexander Keith’s “IPA” - which is categorically not an IPA in _any_ sense - and felt it to be our unique national shame. No more! No, if the ancestral home of IPA can call this malty mild bitter an IPA, then our guilt is expiated. Even allowing for the less aggressive, maltier characteristic of the traditional English IPA as compared to the A/IPA, this is pretty weak sauce. And if this really is the way IPA was traditionally brewed, I guess you have to count me among the rebellious colonials. "I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. Sinners are much more fun.” (10/20)

djoeye (1855) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
Deep golden to amber body, clear. Diminishing top. Aroma; lemon, caramel malts, grassy fresh hops, redcurrants, green leaves of birch. Taste; caramel malts, sweet lemon, toffee notes, grass, fresh hops, mild grains, candies, non-alco cognac confectionery, straw. Mild fresh clean on palate, normal carbonation, light body. Caramel and grass in finish. Fresh, clean and delicious. I enjoyed mine. [50cl clear bottle, abv3.6%, BB Feb2015, B@K skanssi Turku]

Ambro206 (148) - ITALY - SEP 21, 2014
Come si fa a chiamare IPA una birra senza aroma di luppolo? Non avrei neanche dovuto valutare questa birra ma, ahimè, l’ho bevuta e pagata. Prodotto incommerciabile, presentato, tra l’altro, in bottiglia trasparente con tutti i rischi che ne conseguono!

Hoppy caramel aroma with a brown warming appearance. Quite flat and very drinkable. Good session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hantti (24) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Thin and watery feeling. Taste reminds me of a mix of market lager and IPA, but is very lame. One of the worst IPA beers I have tasted.
