BigDUK (13) - West Yorkshire, - JUN 5, 2009
Hand pulled, Duke William, Bradford. Citrusy aroma, thick head, lovely golden colour when settled. Creamy feel in the mouth with citrus/aromatic taste not very hoppy. Easy to drink, not taxing on the taste buds, very refreshing, could easily sink several.

dunklermessias (386) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2017
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 (436) - 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

Cask. Gold in colour. Hoppy, lemon-citrus bitter. Some caramel malt. Good hop/malt balance. Nice bitterness. Long dry bitter finish. Sessionable. OK. (2008)

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.

3.3
Hopverdju (1642) - 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.
