Bitterness only at finish. Definitely an ESB and not an IPA, Clear amber color, with average head.

Nurmis (470) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours amber coloured with nice head. More of an English style ipa where the bitterness isnít as long, but more malty. Nice spiciness in the aroma too, not that much fruits.

gegwilson (3404) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle from Booths. Amber with a frothy cream head. Slightly floral citrus aroma a little reminiscent of washing up liquid. The taste has some spice with more soapy lemon citrus and an assertive botter finish. Itís been a while since I had a proper Birtish IPA, and I quite enjoyed this.

Ktwse (4178) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, light toffee. Taste is caramel sweet followed by a citrus bitter finish. Light and smooth body with average carbonation.

LazyPyro (665) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
500ml bottle. Mostly clear golden colour with a two-three finger frothy white head. Aroma is quite mellow, some pale malt and some hops, citrus. Taste is malty, and surprisingly citrus, orange, grassy hops. Quite well balanced, bitter finish though fairly mild, moderate carbonation, a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good for an English style IPA though.

Wischylini (271) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
Appearance Clear amber, with a white frothy head.
Aroma Typical English hop profile; earthy, herbal, marmalade, and faint citrus. Mellow malty aromas, with notes of plums and toffee.
Taste Mildly sweet, with a solid bitter backbone that complements the sweetness perfectly, making for a very well balanced beer - a rare occurrence when it comes to IPAs these days.
Palate Low carbonation, a filling, but not thick or slick, mouthfeel. Moderately long aftertaste.

minihame2 (524) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Clear, golden colour and a thick tan head. Hoppy aroma, grass, pine, spice. Slightly bitter taste, floral flavours. Body is not that rich, kinda watery, low carbonation. Decent IPA.

ciocanelu (1613) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is balanced with sweet malt and earthy hops. Taste follows but with some more hop character, earthy and citrusy. Finish has more bitterness and also lingers in the aftertaste. Light body with the specific british minerality and medium carbonation. Overall itís a decent english style IPA but nothing special.
