A bit malty for an IPA, and not the kind of level of hops you’d expect. Thicker and stronger in everything *except* the hops are light as mentioned. Not a bad beer, just not really an IPA. More of a reasonable golden ale.

patricks110 (2126) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
A terrible IPA but a good beer after a long day. Pours a darker golden amber with a thin off white head, splotchy lacing. The nose is off with light spicy and biscuity malts, a pinch of leaves and mild grass. Earthy and very mild with a unique fruit hop punch. Bitterness is moderate but well balanced. Apples, pear, plum?

Bottle 355 ml. Amber color with excellent foam. Aroma: floral, fruity (grapes), earthy and pine, light malty. Taste: fresh sweet-sour fruits (pear), good hop bitterness, dry finish, good balance and drinkability.

markducommun (450) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Lightly clouded yellow, white head. Earthy, lightly dank nose. Predominantly bitter. Lighter body, some oiliness. Medium finish. Fine. Fuggle-forward IPA is an interesting choice.

joejames (366) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours amber, one finger quick slightly off white head. Little lace, no retention. Aroma of caramel and herbs. Taste is sweet, lightly earthy bitter. Light bodied, lively carbonation, soapy mouth feel. Finishes earthy bitter and dry. Tasting notes of herbs, grass, caramel and pear. This drinks more like an English bitter than an IPA. Different but drinkable.

ttoadee (1012) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Orange pour, quick white head. Nose is malt, hint of hops. Bitter. Middle is medium malt backbone and hop flowers. Finish is dry and bitter. Pretty good.

Idiosynkrasie (5029) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, fading, minimally lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma, minimally floral, a touch of apple, gooseberry, grainy, biscuity background. Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly fruity and floral hoppy, a touch of gooseberry, apple, diluted plum wine. Old school, British, boring.

35cl Bottle from drankgigant.nl. Golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, light malty, a bit herbal, floral and earthy. Flavour follows, subtle floral and earthy bitterness with some toffee. Light bodied. Decent English IPA.

Alengrin (3404) - BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 My first beer from this brewery. Clear orange blonde with low sparkling, under a medium, lightly lacing, very regular, finely textured, clotted cream-coloured head. Aroma is not unlike many of the blonde Belgian ales hopped with Fuggle / Styrian Golding: an earthy, elegant, somewhat soapy and minty hoppiness remaining gentle enough to leave space for fruity esters and sweetish malts. I get brown bread, marmelade, soap, young cheese, mango, some caramel, hazelnuts, faint hint of eucalyptus, acacia honey, dough, peach and biscuit - in all: strikingly weak hop presence for an American IPA. Sweetish onset of honey and candied fruits but in a very subdued, ’quiet’ way, pretty soft carbonation, hint of salty minerals, toasted malts taking over, a bit nutty and ’biscuity’, bittering and in that sense blending well with the ensuing hop bitterness, which retains an earthy, soapy, leafy, peppery character, nothing of the high alpha acids hops I had expected (and, quite honestly, hoped for), yet long and dry, just remaining ’low’ and - frankly - a bit boring. This is not an IPA to me, not even completely in the classical English sense of the word (which was the first thing that sprung to mind when missing the American citrus hops in the nose); this seems to be more close to a (very) hoppy Belgian blonde. Which is not a disappointment per se because in this category it would hold its own pretty well, I just expected American hoppiness from it.
