a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 Tastes better on cask than bottle but still not an excellent craft beer.............

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is clean, mostly apricot. Taste has mild fruit sweetness balanced out with a mild bitter finish. Texture is soft.

Cask in Edimburgh, A refreshing easy drinking ale. Smooth and creamy with nice fruitiness and not much bitterness foe an ipa

On tap at The Kenilworth, Edinburgh. Comes with a golden color and a small white head. Nose is a little simple: some malts, some yeast, some citric aromas, some herbal aromas. Nothing overhanging. Taste follows the nose.

Mishnok (442) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Pint from cask. I found the taste to be a bit caramel and biscuity. Sweet malts and not a patch on the fruity IPAs currently available from small breweries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Cask. Gold in colour. Hoppy, lemon-citrus bitter. Some caramel malt. Good hop/malt balance. Nice bitterness. Long dry bitter finish. Sessionable. OK. (2008)

Wixie (694) - BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2017
Clear golden liquid, average head. Aroma of yeast, with a tiny hint of hops. Light body, no carbonation. Taste is a bit bitter.

pitch992 (248) - SLOVENIA - JAN 2, 2017
On tap in an Edinburgh pub. Aroma of gentle fruit, biscuit, some herbal notes. Appearance: pale, slightly hazy, good white head with ok retention. Taste is low bitter and low sweet, more biscuit and low fruitiness, some dough. light body, slick feel, soft carbonation, finish is medium long and barely leaves any bitterness. Overall a very gentle "IPA" that is less hoppy and less bitter than most of todays pale ale’s. The beer is a bit watery but probably does appeal to a wide audience.

Hopverdju (1645) - BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2016
Goudblond tot amberkleurig bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: hoppig, den, C-hops? Smaak: Licht bitter, fruitig. Lichte koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter. Licht dorstlessend bier, maar IPA? Nu ja, als de brouwer het zo vermeld, wie zijn wij om het anders te vermelden of we er nu mee akkoord gaan of niet.
