Gelada (12) - - MAR 27, 2003
A solid session beer, not much more needs to be said. The balance of hops, malt and alcohol good for a longer night's drinking.

klukas (361) - Rijeka, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into English pint glass.
Appearance: Clear reddish/copper colour, with small head.
Aroma: Weak (but not as bad) aroma of fruits and malt.
Palate: Light body; medium crispy carbonation.
Taste: Bitter-sweet, easy-fruity, bitter aftertaste.
Overall impression: Nothing special, I expected more. I don’t know why it’s called IPA. Easy and drinkable, taste is not bad, but something is missing.

Commercially produced rubbish. This is not a good IPA at all. It tastes more like a session ale, which if the label described it at such it would get a better rating as that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eunck (225) - Msida, MALTA - SEP 29, 2017
Amber beer with almost no head. Estery aroma without much hint of hops. Definite note of caramel in the malts. Watery with very low carbonation - not a good combination. Disappointing. And why is it called IPA?

hrabren (1641) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle from a Lidl sale. Shared with lovely Anja and little Mirko. Dark golden to amber, medium off-white head. Very light malts, corn, and no hops. Water. No body, moderate carbonation, no finish. Huge disappointment.

darioklc (835) - Karlovac, CROATIA - AUG 18, 2017
3.6% alk. Ni pod kojim slučajom ne spada u red IPA-e... Tako da vas ne zavara ovaj naziv. Ovo je bitter, iako mi ne spada ni tu. Bezukusno pivo bez ičega dobroga u sebi.

jookos (7070) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2017
Bottle. seems ambery and superclear. englishy hoppy nose, bit herby, earthy tea-ish iirc, which turned after about 30min of sitting idle into an old malty grainy, old tea-y thing. can only guess how it was immediately after opening the bottle, but right now feels dullish, old, socky old autumny leafy. not a pleasant experience. probly pretty crappy altogether or just nto one designed for us who like opening bottles and forgetting all about them (for a while). either way wouldn’t go out of me way to find another bottle.

2.7
teddybeer (4168) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 14, 2017
Can 50cl. Orangish color,, off-white head with short duration. Aroma has earthy notes with light caramel. Flavor is light bittery, earthy hops, some toasty. Slightly bitterness with watery mouthfeel.

2.6
LakatosKE (627) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 7, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 0.5l bottle. Clear golden with medium white head, not lasting for so long. Aroma: caramel, toffee, straw. Taste: caramel, toffee digestives, grassy, syrupy. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, low bitterness.
