3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle purchased in Asda. Pours deep gold with a reasonable head. Aroma is predominantly vanilla and caramel. This light sweetness is noticeable in flavour also but is countered by a medium/high bitterness from the hops. IMO the claimed "layers of zesty flavour" from the hops do not appear, instead being muted by the typical I&G vanilla/oak flavour. A quality beer but again not really my type of quality beer.

Crystal clear golden color with tiny white head. Aroma of citrus, vanilla, little hoppy. Taste is sweetish at first, turning into long bitter finish. Quite ok ipa, but nothing extra ordinary.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur doré foncé, mousse blanche peu persistante. Nez malté avec pointe de houblon. Corpulence moyenne, plusieurs niveaux de houblons. On sent peu le bois. Pointe sucrée dommageable. Finale longue et amère.

From the bottled poured one of my favorite IPA’s. Hazy golden with a nice white head. Aroma and flavor of lemon, malt and hops. The flavor has a "earthy" quality, but, it’s not bad. I like this IPA because they don’t try to kill you with hops!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle compliments of a client. Hazy golden with thin head. Smells a little peachy and perfumy with only a faint hint of dank. Flavor reminds me of a campari and soda- which I like. Nice and dry but light.

Strong points appearance and mouthfeel. Amazing lasting head. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. For abv simply amazing. Very little nose light grass and honey. Taste has light oak and honey. Where is the IPA? Very light bitterness. More like a mild pale ale. Was this what an IPA was in 1800?

Awful, tastes like it had ginger in it. Unlike most IPAs I’ve had as there is little hoppyness and very sweet.

Flaske. Farven er lys gylden med en hvid, let og flygtig skumkrone. Aromaen er malt. smør, vanille. Smagen er malt, brød og græs. Jeg forventer mere humle af en IPA.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 4x11. The oak is noticeable and provides a nice taste and smell. However, I cant find much IPA character here. The oak hides it.
