Looks nice with a hazy-golden pour with plenty of foam, but goes downhill after that. Strong hit of diacetyl butteriness and a little earthy hop in the back. Earthy hop mixed with overly-sweet butter. I’ve had this beer and don’t remember it tasting like this, I think too much sunlight is too blame.

mathieuc (983) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a medium but quickly fading white head that leaves good lacing. Nose doesn’t scream "IPA!" and offers more sweet grains than anything. A little earthy. Taste is lightly sweet and bitter, not really good. A little fruity but mostly just caramel flavors. Body is light to medium, carbonation medium-high. Uninspiring.

Nilz (345) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle pours a clear gold with a slim white head. Aroma of mild hops, fruits. Taste is of caramel, somewhat sweet malts but bitterness is to the fore. Fair but it intrigued more than it ultimately delivered.

dj (467) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A copper colour with a small, quickly dissipating head. A slightly hoppy, musty aroma. Flavour is hoppy with caramel, citrus notes and a kick of coriander in the finish. Moderately bitter and moderate carbonation. Nothing to get excited about.

BeerViking (2074) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, poured clear light brown with a lasting fine head, nose has hints of beeswax, cut foliage, a little earth, body has a herbal earthy bitter edge, a touch of citrus and bitter orange, a little nutty malt. It’s an IPA like GK IPA is an IPA - it’s basically a slightly hopped-up keg bitter.

joe19612 (1743) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a good white head, mild hoppy aroma, the taste is bitter with a bitter finish.

mR_fr0g (1974) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle at home from Tesco. Shitty twist of cap/ Aroma is skunky veg hops, mineral caramel malt. Golden orange clear pour with a creamy off white head that lasts. Flavour is minerally, metalic, vegetative hops and stale caramel malt. Palate is aggresive highly carbonation, thin. Just terrible.

Scott_ (21) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Doesn’t come across as an IPA, has a distinct flavour of fuggles which doesn’t suit the aspired style. More of a lager to be honest! However, if it was marketed as such, it would be a nice lager...

Veramente ottima ipa, equilibratissima sia al naso che al palato con un discreto corpo e una aroma erbaceo intenso. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

dogbomb (862) - ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. Mid gold ale with a decent lasting white head. Nose is honey malt, vanilla and light orange. Taste is light and dry, imparting some malts and zingy apple. Nothing exciting, but a good drinker and belies its 5.8% rating.
