Pours golden with white head that hangs around. Slightly floural aroma. Taste is a little odd. Maybe poor ageing. An almost stale taste. Still ok and not sure it is any faulty of the beer itself.

Blonde paille, belle carbo, collet moyen persistant. Aromes herbeux, resineux Corps moyen, resineux chaleureux, caramel, soupcon metallique a lattaque mais s’estompe vite, finale sèche et bien amère.

AssKicker (236) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
Blonde légèrement ambrée trèèès limpide à la mousse généreuse qui tient pas trop mal. Au nez c’est le malt qui domine clairement. En bouche, c’est légèrement sirupeux, la carbo est moyenne. Amertume assez franche, notes de malt et de résineux. Une IPA clairement typée à l’anglaise. Pas mauvaise en soi, mais de nos jours on trouve bien mieux dans le genre.

LazyPyro (592) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy orange colour with a one-two finger off-white head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is malty, fruity, pine, hoppy. Taste of sweetish malt, fruit, light bitter hops. Not a big fan of English style IPAs but this one was quite nice.

Fules (823) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab, sötét borostyán szín. Icipicit karamelles, kellemes fűszeres illat. Édessel indít, aztán előtör a keserű, némi karamellel, majd fűszeres, kissé földes aromák jönnek. Hosszú utóíze kesernyés, fűszeres-földes. Közepesen testes. Nagyon finom, változatos, és pillanatról pillanatra változó aromákkal operáló ipa.

On ressent très peu les houblons, IPA peu amère. Petit coté citronné sympa. Agréable mais sans +

Gangstergafje (696) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
The beer looks quite nice. The color of the brew is an nice dark amber, with a beautiful relish glow. The beer is very cloudy and has a lovely satin aspect. On top of the beer, a nice layer of soft foam is formed. The foam is white, with a tiny yellow tint. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a nice drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell is nice. It’s not like the IPA’s of nowadays. This beer is more malty and less hoppy. I do smell some citrusy hops, and some floral aromas. I also smell some red suits, like cherries, and some oakwood. There is also a nice malty aroma, with a little roasty touch. It isn’t like the IPA’s of today, but it is very good. I also smell some licorice and some spices. The taste is also very nice. It has the same licorice and spice touches, and the little toasty malt flavor. I also taste some lovely delicate hops. The beer has a nice fresh feeling. The palate is very good. The beer has a nice amount of gas in it and a nice bitterness that tingles the tongue very nicely.

guzgorog (719) - FRANCE - JUN 1, 2016
Robe blonde dorée, limpide, fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas. Les zenteurs sont très citronnées, et légèrement maltées. Bouche agréable, également sur le citron, un poil épicée, amertume moyenne, faible pour le style. Longueur moyenne, corps moyen, carbo faible. Une "IPA" plutôt de style anglaise, agréable sans être exceptionnelle.

From Club del Gourmet of Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not bad, but traditional english hops arent as tasty nor aromatic as modern ones from usa, new zealand, etc.

L’ipa traditionnelle est vraiment un genre à part, difficilement rapprochable des autres IPA. Elle a tout d’une bitter à l’anglaise, nez et bouche maltés, caramel, petite amertume, petites touches épicées caractéristique, faible carbonatation. L"IPA et celle ci en particulier aurait un nez plus houblonné et légèrement plus fruitée et amère en bouche.Mais c’est très léger.C’est un prototype de l’IPA anglaise qui n’est pus trop mon genre.
