Rates as an ESB but is intended to be an English IPA. Pours with good grassy and earthy hop aroma. Tastes smooth and just slight bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours and orange color with a medium tight white head.
The aroma has some marmalade & grassy hops, along with a lightly toasty malt character.
The flavor has lots of toasty malt up front and is mildly sweet. The hop character is fairly dominant and is grassy & herbal in character. The beer is fairly bitter and has some orange-y fruitiness.

Dieses Saisonale IPA ist etwas kräftiger und dunkler in der Farbe als sein ebenso unfiltrierter IPA Kollege von Fullers. Es riecht erfrischend fruchtig-herb. Geschmacklich ist es dann zwar hopfig aber die Hopfenintensivität beträgt für mich auf einer Skala nur 7 von 10, was für ein IPA nicht so viel ist ebenso ist es fruchtig-citrusartig, schön, lecker! Fazit: Gutes mittelstark gehopftes, aber Erfrischendes IPA!

Fruity aroma slightly homebrew like. Sharp and pleasant refreshing on the palate. Nice colour. Not a beer I would look for particularly, but would happily drink it if it was bought for me.

0.5 bottle labeled simply as India Pale Ale. Surprising fruity nose, seems like orange peels or a jam. Nice amber-colored clear liquid with some suspension leaving a smudge trace, topped with a white creamy head. Taste is quite neutral, if skewed in any direction then I must say slightly bitter, nothing to elaborate on. Medium body and a creamy texture emphasized even more by a very soft carbonation, one could say it is nearly flat. Finish seems to taste like hay with some fruitiness, quite lingering. Overall a nice beer, neither exuberant nor disappointing, commendable for its drinkability.

On tap. The pour was medium amber with a big lingering head and good clarity. The nose is of full caramel malts, sweetness, and yeasty esters. The hops are played down. The body is medium and of smooth, creamy quality. The taste has a full sweet malty character with a bitter hop bite at the end. Very likable.

Ogi’s, of course. Orangey golden body witha medium sized slightly off white head. Slightly oily peach jam nose. Empty malty taste with a light herbal hopiness, the peachiness shows up again. Too dumbed down, unimpressive, and yet so much better than the last two English ales that we’ve had before this.
