worldbeertaste (1794) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Yellow with a white I , disappearing head. Smells a bit of rot and old fruit with hops and corn. Leaves. Tastes of sour wheat with alcohol and a sulfar yeast finish. Sort of like a Labatte Ice Stong Lagar Beer. Not impressed.

mighty_meadow (305) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Only 79p per bottle in Home Bargains. Not hoppy enough to be a truly great IPA but nice all the same. Quite floral at times with bitter finish. Definite plum notes at the finish as well.

12oz brown bottle. Pours out a golden shade, a touch unclear. Soapy and thin white head on top. Nose has grassy hops. Taste has lemon and grassy hops. Grass and earthy hops in the fade out, low bitterness. Aftertaste has dirt and grass. Not a fan.

seymour (1847) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a nonic pint glass. It poured a light orange amber colour with weak white foam. Malty and hoppy, a fairly true-to-style and balanced English-style IPA but nothing too special. Light-medium body, somewhat bready mouthfeel, lingering fruity and earthy aftertaste. Decent but disappointing. Considering they allegedly use UK Fuggle hops, the revered dual-strain Ringwood Brewery dual-strain yeast, top-cropped in open fermentors...this should taste WAY better than it does.

reebtogi (5473) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and caramel. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a nicely balanced caramel malt and light fruit sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Much like an English bitter, but with more hops.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Aroma of fruit, apples, plums, some hops. No head or lacing. Not a great IPA, but not awful either.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Floral and stewed fruit hops mix with wholemeal bread and mild caramel malt to create the aroma. Floral and berry hops up front give way to wholemeal bread and slight caramel notes in the mid-palate, with spice and floral hops in the finish. The use of Fuggles makes this feel like a bitter that has simply had the hops turned up, probably much like the original IPAs would have been. It’s an interesting concept, although there are more exciting IPAs out there.
