2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Brown amber with a faor head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Thye flavour has a nice hoppiness, good maltiness,
slight sourish and with a little nuttiness.
Bitter finish. Not an IPA at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
brownish pale copper color, slightly cloudy & glossy. very short light tan head that disappears quickly. aroma is a little bit like simple sugar syrup/honey water, and light malt. flavor is mild to weak peaty malt, some light tea and faint caramel malt. hops not so strong, body is mostly watery. I don’t understand why they call this an IPA.

Very slight hops in the aroma.Pours a reddish color with a thin white head.Slight malt and a touch of hops in the flavor.Very thin mouthfeel with a slight malt finish.This one might have been past its prime.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not very hoppy for an IPA, but there was a hint of floral IPA hops, but only just. IPAs in my mind should have a bolder hop finish, and this was nothing more than a malty Scottish ale with some extra hops thrown in at the end of the boil.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly simular to their scotch ale... although not as heavy and not as dark in color. MALTY!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad, but nothing like what I expected. I thought my beer had been mislabeled until I read others comments. Tasted and looked more like an Octoberfest than IPA. Brown in color with little head, lower alcohol content, and no hoppy bitterness. This is nothing like an IPA. Still, it was pretty drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light amber with a thin mostly receding light white head. Aroma is sweet flowery and fruity, notes of funky alefruits. Taste is buttery, sweet caramel, and alefruits. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft with light foamy carbonation. Enjoyable fruity IPA from England.

There’s nothing much I, P, or A about this brew. Tastes nice, but not an IPA. Can distinictly taste pasteurization which gives it a slight stout nose with creamy looking head. Not bad, not what I expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is amber with a small off white head. The aroma of hops is little and there is a slight smokiness. The flavor has almost no hops to be detected but there is a malty flavor and a touch of smoke at the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 Amber pour,mild head.Watery malt aroma and taste with a hint of hops and faint grass. I thought IPA’s were supposed to be a bit higher in ABV?! This is easy to drink but nothin special. May explain why it was at the BB date and on sale for $7 a six.
