nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, - APR 25, 2011
Darkish golden hue with a fast disappating head. Clean malt and floral nose. Malty flavour with a long hoppy, citrussy, floral bitter after taste. A beer of some quality, very enjoyable.

Bottle from Waitrose. One of my personal IPA favorites. Well balanced with hints of fruit and caramel. Balanced bitterness.

GemmeDeReve (87) - 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

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

josanguapo (1551) - 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

BeerLieutenant38 (62) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 1, 2017
330ml bottle (as Fuller’s India Pale Ale) Loverly red-amber colour, with a small head and medium carbonation. Medium bodied, a nice bitter finish follows some spicy, fruity flavours. A really nice IPA which could well become a regular standby.

GhostS (293) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 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!

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2017
500ml bottle at Purecraft Bar, Birmingham. Pale orange-gold with a thin white head. Striking aroma of sweet marmalade. Flavour is likewise of marmalade, which gives way to a bitterness and a faint cloying burn.

Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Pours golden colour. Aroma is light - honey malt floral and some alcohol. Taste is distinctive Fullers yeast, honey, biscuit and floral hops. Well crafted ale with interesting hop backbone but a mediocre hop presence.
