Smell was fantastic. If only the smell could match the taste. Has a very strong aftertaste of metal. Too much malt, I feel for this type of ale. Overall, a very bad IPA. It was more like a malty bitter ale that was fermented in a brass barrel.

Aroma of malt, caramel, bread, some fruits and floral notes, mild hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Mild and fairly pleasant English IPA.

Odd tall flask shaped bottle poured. Pours a murky golden orange with a thin patchy head. Big hops and subtle grain aroma. Majority dry flavor with a nice balance of malt and hops. Slightly bitter hop finish. This is definitely different then my usual IPA, and itís really nice to have a big change. Kind of a thirst quenching IPA, and I thought that before I read on the bottle that the original purpose for the beer was exactly that. Something about this beer is really tasty. I donít know. I thought it was good. Not going to let anyone persuade my opinion. Good stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 Awesome bottle....a decent ipa but towards the coffee, toffee, caramel, biscuit end...not the fruity, citrus end....drinkable, but not for me

Bevuta in bottiglia questa English IPA che mantiene lo stile originario non contaminato dai sapori "alla moda" americani. Visivamente color ramato e con poca chiuma che perÚ persiste nel bicchiere, al naso Ť molto "terrosa" ed erbacea, in bocca prevale la struttura matata piuttosto che líabbondante amaricatura delle AIPA. Buona, diversa ed "originaria".

Bosskie (443) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Light copper coloured beer, crystal clear with a weak foamy head. Smell is malty yoghurt fruitiness. Apples and grapes and some pepper. Taste is full and bitter, deliciously hoppy. Dry astringent finish. Wood.

Der weisse Schaum sitzt auf dem amberfarbene Bier. Ein feiner Duft steigt in die Nase. Prickelnd fliesst das Bier die Kehle hinunter. Der Abgang ist aromatisch und der Nachhall klingt noch des lšngeren leicht bitter nach. Ein sehr gutes Bier.

500ml bottle served in a Pint glass. A: Pours a reddish copper color forming a medium creamy and charming yellow head. Good retention and tons of foamy lacings formed end left in the glass S: Skunky British style hops and caramel malts, mainly. Sweet toffee. Ale yeasts T: Follows the nose, sweet toffee upfront. Caramel malts, citrus fruits, skunky and flowery hops. Moderate stingy hops bitterness lasts in the end M: Light body and medium carbonation. Citrus and skunky hops bitterness aftertaste O: Easy drinking British style session Ale. Could be better but still an honest one [ BA Review @ 10/21/2012 ]

That was exactly what i expected from English IPA . Amber/copper color , with small head. Aroma of bread , caramel and spicy hops. Same pleasant notes in taste. I don't see any sense of comparing this beer with American IPA. In my opinion there are different styles of beer. And this IPA is underrated because of high flavored American beer.
