2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An amber beer with a fine head thogh fast disappearing. The aroma is slightly fruity with hints of spices. It has a good malt sweetness, but is only slightly bitter - not like an IPA - but OK for a light ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark copper coloured, small foamy white head. Fruity aroma with some hoppy hints. Flavour quite sweet hoppy bitterish. Not much IPA in this one, rather a very sweet bitter... Long hoppy aftertaste with some caramellish and hayish hints. Toffee in aftertaste too.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clean amber color. Difficult to believe it's a real IPA, with such poor character, from the aroma to the flavor, with an uncommon white sugar note mixed with some malt; the bitterness is just sufficient, and no hop aroma. Still some sweetness in the palate, along with the bitterness (artificial sweetners?).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle-pours a head of white bubbles and copper/brown color. Aroma is medium malt-some caramel/brown sugar. Taste is dark/medium malt-some caramel/brown sugar, secondary/faint hops bite. An easy drinking beer but not much hops, so I enjoyed it but not an IPA.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rather bland beer. Not much of its white head and low carbonation. Great ruby-red colour. Scent is slightly chemical but mostly hoppy. Taste is mild (wuite watery) with a dryness to it and a quite malty taste for an IPA.
