3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice sweetish aroma, with a refreshing bitter taste with complex aftertaste. Not neccessarily a beer I would seek out especially, but it was on offer at my local supermarket, it was surprisingly refreshing with a curry.

bottle from somewhere in East Devon. Rather dark chestnut-golden colour, large head, mild but with a very pleasant hop profile. Very nice and easy-drinking.

Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity and some apples and mild wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, wooden, floral and some mild soapy notes. Balanced and mild, but still very pleasant for being less than 4 %.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall brown 500ml bottle best before the end of Jan 2013: poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard on 19th June 2012.
Clear amber body with a large off-white head of bubbles on top.
Malty nose for an IPA, with just a hint of floral hops to stop it being an overly sweet smelling beer.
The taste is also malty: biscuit/bread more than sweeter molasses, the hops again ensure the beer isn’t just a malt flavoured brew and give the beer a pleasant semi-bitter feel throughout. The alcohol content although low suits the beer and doesn’t impair the overall flavours or taste.

4x500ml cans for £2.60 from home bargains. Doesn’t look like much- copper colour with hardly any head. But the taste is good - not that strong but a good balance between malt and hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M, Halifax. Copper with next to no head, just a few bubbles. Medium to full bodied with a light session pale ale character. Dry with some fruit and a touch fizzy in the palate.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Przeciętne i delikatne piwo. Nazwa myląca, bo z prawdziwym IPA to nie ma nic wspólnego, nawet jako bitter jest zdecydowanie za mało goryczkowe i chmielne.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clearish, dull brown with a soft, white foam head. Sugary-doughy and toasty-bready malts in the nose, some honey. Light sweet flavor with mild plastic, leaves, faint caramel. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Mild dryness to finish with light caramel and further toasted bread. OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden amber in colour with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts giving a chewy digestive biscuit flavour instead of the full blown citric notes expected from an IPA - a pleasant surprise indeed! Raisin fruit notes evident and slight hop resin dryness in the balanced finish.
