Clear golden pour with a sudsy head that doesn’t stay. Grassy aromas. Flavor isn’t much in the way of hops, or really anything that would warrant the label of an IPA. An easy drinker on a hot day, but forgettable and boring.

Faint aroma of citrus and grass. Clear gold colour. Mild bitter front with a spectral grapefruit flavour; finishes clean and malty. Med-light body with lively carbonation. Pleasant enough, but very ambiguous on whether this actually drinks like an IPA.

this was the biggest let down of the mix six, though expectations were low. This resembles not even the weakest of English IPAs (though I see it’s classed as an English pale here, the bottle says India), Weak hops, weak feel - this is crap, unfortunately.

Absolute garbage! So so malty. Little hops. Maybe enough hops to call it an Amber. But dear god not an ipa. It has the skunky rice cheap beer taste. No no no no no. Alright guys.... Had a milestone when I hit a perfect score. This is my legit perfectly bad score. It’s not an ipa which knocks it down big. Then even of it were a pale ale or a light or an Amber there are so many off flavors. It tastes like how my dogs piss smells. It’s just nothing is good about it other than the fact that there is some alcohol in there.

Light and watery, a touch of corn with very little hop character. Not a ton of carbonation.

Tricker (388) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bière ambrée de 5.3 % d’alcool. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle possède un nez amer et de moufette. Elle possède un goût céréalier et prenant, comme si je buvais une bière brune. Elle a cette particularité d’amertume en finale caractéristique à une IPA. Bonne !

Not much hop in aroma. Some malt. Beer is a faded amber with very little head. Doesn’t taste much like an IPA or a pale ale. Pretty boring. Kind of metallic, somewhat of a bitter finish. Not a really good beer.

Bottle 341ml. Pours deep golden/amber with medium-high creamy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, malt, caramel, lime, citrus. Taste is of grain, malt, caramel, sugar, rocket fuel, alcohol, bitterness, lime, citrus. Palate: Heavy carbonation. Light-medium body. Overall: This one is actually bitter, wich is surprising. Alcohol not well hidden at all, and a cheap beer grain aftertaste is present.
