markdoswald (11) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2013
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.

BeerandBlues2 (9097) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy and bubbly off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is earthy, woody, and minty hops, cracker and meal malt with light pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light toast malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

oliodnb (138) - ITALY - APR 18, 2014
Deep, clear amber color, off white head. Aromas of malts and some vegetal note. Tastes of malts and caramel with a nice hoppy finish not too bitter.

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Amber clear. Slight herby hops, some metallic notes. But overall a pretty weak nose. Feels really English, actually. And like something rather bulk from a can. Tasting it, the body is quite nice, rounded with a woody, pine, bitterness. But still, I canít shake that bulk-can- feeling. Iíve liked a lot of these guysí brews, but this isnít one of them. Doesnít smell like much. The taste a bit better, but nothing too exciting.

spacecube (658) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
500ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with hardly any head, in the nose is wet cardboard malt, a bit musty, not really my thing on first impression, other aromas coming through in the mouth are mild orange peel, grain, hay. The taste is an improvement and there is bitterness coming through at the finish, but quite sweet and sticky still. Not bad, drinkable, but the aromas are muted and of the wrong kind for me.

Ed5388 (1732) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2014
Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a hazy orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of herbal hops and old citrus fruit. Taste is much the same.

amber color; caramel, malty, noble hop aroma; a well-balanced English IPA; bitter noble hops on a medium-bodied malt base with caramel notes

hens (493) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2014
0.5L bottle. Clear amber, nice fluffy hat. Euro hop, raisin aroma. Barley malt, vinegar, red wine, grass, blue cheese flavors. Not good ipa power and taste on this beer. Medium bitter an vinegar finish.

melush (269) - SPAIN - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Botella de 50 cl, adquirida en Cerveceria Internacional. Color ambar. Sabor a lupulo y malta. Es muy suave para ser una IPA.

omikr0n (660) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with thin quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is hops, herbs, bubblegum. Flavor is malt, hops, hint of grass and bubblegum.

thirstyrabbit (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle. Amber body, medium head. Aroma has medium levels of English hops with caramel and berries. Too weak for an IPA - no citric or juicy character. Taste is driven by malty caramel and berries, followed by a timid woody hoppiness. Dry powdery finish, hoppiness is low and unrefreshing. More like an ESB than IPA. Donít count on this if you feel like having a refreshing grapefruity IPA.
