500ml Bottle. Im a big fan of GK IPA Gold but cant stand their ordinary IPA, so I was viewing this beer with mixed feelings. It pours a reddish brown with a medium thin white head. Its aroma is sweet, hops, with toasted malts and caramel. It tastes citrusy but with a twang of toasted malts and a bitterness towards the end. I quite like this and will have again.

Marek13 (193) - Brzesko, POLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Aroma of East Kent Golding hop, caramel, malt and little alcohol. Dark red coloured beer, clear. Tan coloured, one fingered head, fast reduces to very flat. No lacing. In taste caramel, bread, toffee, little roasty and herbal from hop. In palate bites of alcohol in throat with tea and tobacco aftertaste. Bitterness is too low, but it’s nice. Carbonation little too high. It’s not a bad beer, neither very good. Definetely too much sensible alcohol.

Medium intensive aroma of english hops. A little bit of skunk. Can’t understand - why do they use clear glass bottles? Color dark amber, medium bitterness. An ordinary beer, ok

Arek (597) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle 0.5 l, Lidl, Wrocław, Poland.
Herbaciane piwo o obfitej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym, lekko ziemistym aromacie koniaku. W smaku słodkawe, początkowo owocowe, lekko ziemisty z nutami koniaku oraz wytrawną, ziołową goryczką na finiszu.

Slautar (172) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2015 Oj panowie Anglicy, po kiego czorta trunek zacny w białe szkło lejecie? Potem człek nie wie czy wytwórca rzecz spartaczył czy może to słońca działanie skunksem się objawia. Wiedzieć chcecie jak India Pale Ale winno pachnieć i smakować? Sami tu! Do Rzeczypospolitej!

Grisza77 (127) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bursztynowe, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która szybko redukuje się do mgiełki na powierzchni piwa. Aromat słodowy z nutą chmielu. W smaku podobnie, słód z nutą chmielu. Goryczka średnia w stronę niskiej, przyjemna, grejpfrutowa. Ogólnie piwo nie jest złe, typowowo angielskie, bez szaleństwa, ale bardzo poprawne i pijalne.

ogniskowicz (465) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2015 Typowa przeciętna brytyjska ipa. Aromat bardziej słodowy (z muśnięciem ziołowości chmielu). W smaku dość wytrawnie, z grejpfrutową goryczką (albedo jak nic). Bez wad, ale przeciętnie do bólu.
