Bottle. Amber brown with an off white head. Aromas are toffee with tropical fruit and leafy notes. Candy sugar with floral notes and herbal aspects. Flavours are sweet, chewy toffee with brown sugar and pineapple and mango. Simple yet very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Offie, Leicester. Close to a DIPA. Also quite malty. Very sweet and temptingly smooth. Doesn’t seem very hoppy, but probably is quite hoppy: just with the type of hops not usually associated with an IPA. Drinkable and nice. Boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ipa decisamente fuori stile, con un forte carattere maltato-caramellato che sovrasta le note fruttate dei luppoli, abbastanza deciso e persistente l’amaro ma solo nel finale. L’impatto col palato lo definirei più propriamente sul dolce-maltato. Piacevole da bere e ben celati gli otto gradi, che lasciano intuire solo una leggera sfumatura alcolica.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
large white head...amber colour... smells pretty good... sweet start and bitter end, too much of a alchol taste, not much depth. Overall unspectacular IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Limpida di color aranciato come una IPA e con una schiuma finissima che tiene, il problema è che al naso prevale un forte maltato e caramellato anzi che il luppolo che si percepisce solo alla fine. In bocca è dolce, con un fine perlage e piuttosto alcolica. Finale poco amaro.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber colour, nice fruity and hoppy aroma. The beer starts very smooth, quite sweet. Nicely hop aroma, very flowery, fruity. The mainpart is quite alcoholic, smooth, yeasty and quite bitter. but not too much if the nice floral hop aroma here. The a aftertaste is medium, gets quite bitter without nice other hop flavours. Quite sweet-malty.
--> ok, but nothing special!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a hazy, dark, dark, dull orange with a light tan top. The smell is caramel, fruity hops. The taste is malty, caramel, fruit, light bitterness ending a bit dry. Smooth, light carbonation and slick medium body. Not a great IPA though it is certainly not a bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,33l with different label design. ABV is 8.0 on my bottle. It is also called Schönramer India Pale Ale. Pours clear amber body with white lacing head. Aroma is typical Cascade or Citrus hops variants, little soapy oranges as well. Palate is medium full-bodied, thick and almost oily. Carbonation is flat and smooth. Taste is, well, quite bitter, but fruity flavours balance it out to some extent. ABV 8% is present in warmness, but otherwise well enough hidden. Finish is bitter, little yet remains freshly consistent with fruity hoppy and malty finish. Decent brew, pretty strong but still quite drinkable.

Thanks to Keen Massey for this one. Almost clear amber beer with a small white head. Palate is slightly soft and a little dry. Creamy malt with a little toffee and twigs! Dried fruits. Little noble hop bitterness. Finishes dry with a mild bitter linger. Pretty malt led, never an IPA!
