promontor (157) - - MAY 25, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 0.5 bottle from britishstore.hu, labelled as Fuller’s India Pale Ale. Starts with a nice head but quickly vanishes. Head has mildly bitter taste with malty and fruity notes. Colour is a bit darker than a pilsner, but fairly pale altogether. The taste is a balanced British ale on the bitter side, with moderate fruity notes plus some caramel maybe. Carbonation is OK, could be milder but becoes fairly silky in the end. Nice bitterish aftertaste. Well balanced, nice stuff. (Rerated on 8 August, very nice malty finish with silky mouthfeel and balanced frouty hoppiness, raise the score a bit. A fine beer.

Lätt disig orange kulör med ett litet skum. Krämig parfym-/tvåldoft. Torr och kärv smak, lite lätt metallisk, kemisk citrus och apelsinmarmelad. Halvfyllig, ointressant kropp. Eftersmaken är halvlång och aning metallisk.

GhostS (398) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2017 Aroma - flowers and fruits, floral hop, sweet citrus, some caramel, honey and some notes of belgian yeasts. Taste - bitter, predominantly floral, with lot of malt, honey, some sweet fruits and honey, yeast. Very floral and good!

klm1 (1585) - Bled/SF, - JUN 15, 2017
Amber colour with light brown head, wich immediately disappear. Very mild aroma, you can detect only some herbal, grassy notes. Similar as aroma is flavor: mild notes of hops, with grassy, herbal character, well balanced with maltiness, which have biscuit like character. Firstly is sweet, with bitter finish. Body is medium, soft carbonation and bitterness. Classical english style IPA.

jooilakon (190) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Bottle from Waitrose. One of my personal IPA favorites. Well balanced with hints of fruit and caramel. Balanced bitterness.

GemmeDeReve (119) - FRANCE - APR 30, 2017
Bière ambrée sans mousse, léger arôme fumé, goût d’IPA avec l’amertume reconnaissable, le goût ne reste pas en bouche longtemps, elle manque un peu d’amertume quand même, dommage

Lore (2773) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 30, 2017
clear dark golden colour, medium sized dense, slightly yellowish head; aroma offruity, floral and slightl resiny notes, maybe some caramel and citruses, too; bittersweet taste with fruity, resiny, and a bit sourish notes; drinkable

Bottle- clear amber with small white head. Decent hoppy aroma. OK mouthful- good citrus orangey tang to taste. Reasonably easy drinking.

josanguapo (1731) - SPAIN - MAR 16, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2017 Labeled as Fuller’s India Pale Ale (Not Bengal Lancer) 1st Bottle from Aldi. 33cl. In Ikea?s Pint glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x08. Caramel with a strong old school herbal bitterness that balances very well the malt and provides an pleasant overall experience. Long lasting foam 2nd bottle from Labirratorium. In same glass. Playing Shadows of Vatican. Similar to previous one. Feels a bit more fresher (although is 3 months older, bb Jan 18) but have slight veggie notes not much pleasant and has less foam. I?d give it the same score as one thing compensates the others
