3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle as IPA 46 Ale. Aroma of malt and floral hop. Hazy amber color with a reasonable off-white head. Medium body with biting, creamy carbonation. Malty, but there is floral hop that nearly balances. Itís a bit different, neither exactly APA nor IPA. I vote for a strongly favored ESB. I really like it. Finishes pretty clean with decent bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I thought I remembed liking this more, but this tasting just didnít do that much for me. It has a metallic taste and a cardboard quality in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mildly hazy yellow with thin off-white head. Citrus nose balanced with sweet malts. Citric hop finish (grapefruit) with a mild bitter aftertaste, not very hoppy. Pretty weak as far as IPAís go, this seems to a mass-produced starter IPA.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (IPA 46) , Carringtons, Manchester. Picked up a 6 pack of this for a party almost solely on the strength of the very attractive box resplendent with elephant and colonial theme..Unfortunately the beer itself doesnít quite make the grade. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair head. Not much of an aroma to speak of. Tatse is sweet and pretty artifical with an unpleasant metallic twang to it. A bit naff really; as the saying goes , never judge a book etc etc

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sixpack from JustBrewIt, Jacksonville. Labeled IPA 46. Golden beer with a white head. Mild aromatic hop aroma. Decent flavor of pale malts and hops, as expected for an IPA. Tame by current IPA standards, and nothing to make it stand out. Still, it was drinkable and refreshing on a warm spring day in Florida. I wish I were as drunk as the guy at Ratebeer who put this in the APA categotry.

...well, Iím not much of an IPA man myself, but this was crap. Not hoppy enough, too grassy and light. It came in a sampler, and I would never buy this canadian bullshit beer .

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt and some citrusy hop. Taste is malty and has a slight bitter finish, but kind of dry for a pale ale. Itís an OK beer but doesnít stand up to other IPAís.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper pour with a thin, filmy white head. Malty aroma with some floral hoppage and honey. A bit more malty taste, with bread/dough. Finishes slightly sticky with malty bitterness. Not impressed.
