Nothing special here - basic pale ale, heavier on the malt than the hops. Slightly skunky flavor from a bottle. Nice color, and not much to the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, 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.

Bottle - pours gold with a white head. Not a lot of hops on the aroma, more caramel malt. Dry taste across the palate. Not really an IPA.

Fluxing (287) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Kolor jasnobursztynowy, lekko opalizujace. Piana bardzo obfita, ale bardzo szybko redukuje sie do cienkiej warstwy, ktora utrzymuje sie przez caly czas picia, minimalnie oblepia szklo. W aromacie intensywny przypalony karmel polaczony z calkiem intensywnym aromatem angielskiego chmielu w wydaniu slodkich owocow i migdalow, z tylu przebija lekki kwasek, typowy zapach ulepkowatego ESB. W smaku cale szczescie nie jest juz tak mulaco jak w aromacie, ale i tak jest dosc mdle, karmelowe, tostowe, melanoidynowe, lekko przypalone, z majaczaca gdzies w tle nuta gorzkiej czekolady, do tego lekki metal i podwyzszona kwasnosc, ale na szczescie nie sa one na tyle przytlaczajace, aby uniemozliwialy picie. W smaku polpelne, dosc slodkie, gladkie i sliskie. Wysycenie niskie. Lekkie rozgrzewanie alkoholowe po przelknieciu. Goryczka niska, absolutnie nie kontruje karmelowej slodyczy tego piwa, lekko lodygowa, owocowa i migdalowa.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is comprised of lemon-lime, citrus, and hay. The lemon-lime flavor seems off, seems like the malt overpowers the fuggles. Medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation and a slightly sticky mouth feel. Some bitterness is attached to this beer.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Hoppy start with some citrus fruits and bit spruce. Dry and bitter finish with some grassy moments and earthy background. Not a bad one but I expected lot more.

Beautiful rich copper colour with a creamy off white head. Lacing sticks around. Smells stale. A little hoppy but nothing great at all. Tastes grainy and harsh, not a great beer. Palate Is watery and thin. I would have thought I had an off bottle if it weren’t for the previous ratings.

Just because it says I P A in big bold print on the bottle doesn’t make it a real india pale ale. Ok beer, but no sir... it ain’t an IPA.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing here and there in no intricate fashion as it just kind of went all over the place. The smell had some light citrus hops that were over top of some English malts. Obvious soapiness is slightly there. The taste was mainly sweet through the malts and the hops. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still slightly subdued as well. Overall, this beer was decent as an English IPA that I could down again.
