A beutiful amber beer with an OK head. It has a slight aroma of hops. The flavor is flat, watery and only slightly bitter for an IPA, but from a very nice hops. I will not categorize this beer as an IPA - because of the lacking bitterness.

Nice enough IPA, milder than most. Decent hops throughout, bitter finish. Not much on character or complexity.

Can. I wouldn’t say this stuff is bad exactly, but it certainly is boring, and definitely not an IPA. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with some earthy hops. Flavor is sweet with muddled fruits and malts, augmented by a curious bitterness. Medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes lightly hoppy and sweet. Drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (21064) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Das IPA startet zwar hopfig, dennoch scheint es mir ein eher mildes IPA, ein Massenbier, wie man so sagt. Als Unterton agiert ein frischer Malzton, auch dieser eher mild. Die Hopfigkeit wird im Mittelteil nur minimal stärker, das Bier wird trotzdem etwas würziger. Eine Entäuschung ist der Nachgeschmack, das Malz bleibt zwar konstant, doch die Hopfigkeit und auch die Herbe sacken von einem auf den anderen Moment auf 0 ab, so entsteht ein außerordentlich wäsriger Abgang. Ein meiner Meinung nach deutlich zu mildes IPA. Test vom 29.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,9,5,11,8 - 8,30
