Light brown IPA.Powerful floral, minty and grassy aroma with a straw like colour and long bitter finish. Original IPA (stronger and very hoppy). This beer will easily survive a long journey to India.

Bottle. Dark golden beer with a good strong white head. The aroma lightly hopped, and the flavour is hopped, dry with some fruitiness. Overall a nice hopped beer, not too weak on flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with medium thick white head. Aroma is grass, citrus, some fruits, dry, light metallic notes. Taste is quite same, some tropical fruit notes light sweetness added. Nice refreshing beer!

jnsrgnt (21) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Cask pint. Very much an old school IPA, actually far more powerful than the stronger American style ones I’d had early on in the session. Big juicy potency, almost overpowering sweetness, also a herbal thing going on. Pours pale with white head. Wavering between a 12 and a 13, but I’m going 13 just because I like the style.

thirstyrabbit (1749) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Orange IPA body with a steady medium tall head. Soft hoppy aroma with some red apples and sour citric fruits. Smooth mouthfeel with ripe red apples and orange juice in taste. Pretty sweet and fruity, not piney at all. Finish has a nicely balanced bitterness that doesn’t override the sweet and fruity body. At times it feels like drinking orange juice (in a good way). Rather good, it seems to be underrated here.

Jultsu (753) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2016
0.5l pullo, BBE sep-2017. Tummankuparinen väri, ok vaahtoava joka jää huterasti reunoille. Maltaisen sammunut mutta oudon raikkaahko tuoksu, maku tunkkaisehko, outo, vetisen laimea mutta karvas mallasfiilis. OK, mutta ei mun juttu.

A medium IPA. Not too much IPA in it though. Hop is very vague. Smell too. Also not very bitter compared to most IPAs. Malt profile is missing a little power.
