Standartni Ipa. Na pivě miluji rozmanitost a každý má své chutě, At si teda každý zkusi sám.

Bottle. Golden colour with frothy white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Quite well balanced, grassy hops and sweet malts. Medium body, quite high carbonation. Tastes like a pretty decent bitter, not really an IPA. Still nice though.

Cask at The Bell in Waltham st Lawrence. A lot of sweetness and not enough hop to be a great ipa. Not bad just could be better.

Dobre, ale nie rewelacyjne. Znow naciaganie klientow. Na etykiecie napisane "Real True IPA", czyli przawdziwe India Pale Ale ale jednak okazuje sie ze to raczej ESB. Wiec nie wiem czy klasyfikacja jes dobra czy producent oszukuje. Nie mniej jednak troche przypomina prawdziwe angielskie IPA. Centymetrowa piana lekka metnosc, choc drozdzy nie bylo chmielowy smak i zapach.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 17.08.2013, cask @ Angleterre:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, winegum, cardboard, hay, grass, dried fruits. Taste is kind of harsh boozy even though it’s only 5,5%, grass, cardboard, winegum, hay, alcohol, bark, dried fruits. Longlasting harsh bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Awfull!!

Draught at bar. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, herbs, grass, fruits and earthy notes. Bitter finish with grapefruit and grass. Very nice real ale.

mjs (4498) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2013
(Cask at Kitty’s, 20130625) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small, long lasting and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good clean beer showing the English hop characteristics.

RexTalionis (2356) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2013
Cask. Pours golden in color with a small white head. Fruity and floral aroma with light grassy notes as well in aroma. Light grassy hoppy notes in taste. Easy to drink, great taste and pretty good overall. Feels really smooth.

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 7, 2013
Cask (Black Door, Helsinki)
Lovely light floral aroma, a touch of honey. Soft palate, gentle carbonatiion. Full in the mouth. Really fruity retronasals, tons of apple and fleshy fruit esters. Honey too. Lovely soft taste, gentle fruity graininess, and with a subtle but potent resiny bitterness. Quite undergrowthy in places, but not earthy. Love the honey, apple, and the incredible smoothness without stickiness. A storming English IPA (this would easily survive the journey)!
