Finn (4363) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014
Fra cask på Blue Bell, York 30 Okt 14. Lys gyldenbrun. Lavt tett skum. Tynn lacing. Veldig beskjeden fruktaroma. Smaken er svisker. Lite annet.

Craft near Tottenham Court Road. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light pale malts. Light floral sweetness. Whisper of esters. Mild and well integrated citrus. Light dry finish. It’s a good beer but nowhere near hoppy enough to be calling itself an IPA.

Garrold (1636) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Cask. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Hazy gold. Tight, white head. Yep, fresh green hop. Some sumac kind of spice. Some astringency. Taste is surprisingly biscuity sweet. More of that astringency aids balance. Fresh, oily palate. Dry, astringent finish.

s_hartshorne (1642) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle cotteridge wine Birmingham. Aroma is lime yeast herbs. Clear copper colour no head. Taste is very fresh orange line yeast cardamom and pepper notes mild hops. Medium body slight fizz. Decent dont understand some of the poor ratings! Just because its not a tropical hop bomb people turn nasty!!

500 ml bottle, straight from the bottle. Aroma and taste of malt, liquorice, faint bread, herbs with a well balanced bitterness

Is this a joke? Let's put hops on the bottle and call it green, IPA and fresh and maybe we can dupe some wanna-be hop heads that they're drinking the real thing. The beer had almost no head, has aroma of something lagerish and tastes NOTHING of hops. It reminds me like one of those beers you get a the worst pub in town where people drink beer because it's cheap and it's alcohol. Bad, bad, bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (260) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2014
bottle @ home. Crystal clear amber color. A fizzling thin white head that really quickly dissipates into nothing. Spicy aroma, biscuit maltiness , there’s a preponderance of cloves , with some licorice and unripe bananas. Sweet biscuit taste with a bit of caramel. Herbal/spicy English hop tones and some basil witch merges into cloves & ginger in the more dry finish. I also sense some anise. The bitterness is really low with a touch of cinnamon and orange. Medium body, high carbonation and a watery feeling in the finish. I sort of enjoyed it for being odd, but style-wise? I could have accepted it as a belgian inspired English IPA if it had bitterness to speak of, but it hasn’t.

omhper (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear amber, no head. Weird aroma of ginger and menthe. Mid sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel, almost flat. Fruity with lots of strange spices, ginger, cardamom and peppermint. Low bitterness. Shallow malt character. Just weird.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours golden color, a bit dull, initially, then it brightens up, with poor head. Aroma of biscuity malts, mild, but also a strange herbal note , basil sage and some coriander spice. The mouthfeel is dryish, it has some malt flavor, light caramel, but disturbed by a similar herbal flavor, add a perception of aniseed too; ordinary bitterness.
Just messy.

Bottle from fellow beergeek, enjoyed at home. Dont really remind me of an ipa. Its mor malty than hoppy and taste and smells ginger. A fair enough beer tho.
