3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Very mild aroma with nothing much to pick out. Moderate malt, a good amount of hops and a long, quite intense bitter finish. Pretty smooth. Not complex but really pretty good. Certainly better than expected.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden appearance, medium head. Hoppy, floral, fruity and malty aroma, bitter but still balanced. Not a typical IPA, but decent and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown bottle again - hurrah! Nice light brown to amber pour, with a lasting white head. Piney and lightly spicy nose with a faint hint of peach, good firm bitterness over dry and juicy malt, a little grassiness and some toasted orange.

Bottle. A bit foggy, yellow. Small white head. Aroma has grain and pine.
Taste has fruit, grain, citrus. Body is a bit thin, mouthfeel is watery. Turns bitter on the aftertaste, finishes well with pine.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear light orange color, just a little bit of haziness. Small white head. Metallic nose and aroma. Lack of hops. Kind of bitter finish. IPA? I don’t think so. (Svijet piva 0,5l bottle)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear orange color, big white head. Light to medium body, average carbonation. Texture is watery. Aroma is very light and weak. Traces of floral and citrusy hops. Some distant maltiness too. Light bitter taste and the rest is mostly water. Very disappointing actually. IPA? It looks like false advertising to me.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Oh how I do love a good Marstons beer, and now Old Empire shows me that I am right in this. Features include a super malty backbone and subtle hop bittering, a very 'true' IPA but the dry hopping with Cascade adds just a touch of the new world. Interesting that this is now in a brown bottle, they must be paying attention in Wolverhampton, good stuff.

Beer from a tulip glass
Dark golden color with a thin beige head and little to medium carbonation.
Aroma is weak, but some hop,malt,citrus,herbs and spices.
Tastes weak and thin, but a slightly bitter finish.
This beer lacks a lot if not everything for being a IPA

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical English bitter, malt forward beer that has a slight grassy, hay-like hop character. Fine but nothing special, forgettable.
