Aroma: Cereals and hay.
Appearance: Dark ambar color with clear liquid and minimal white head.
Taste: Light bitterness.
Palate: Light body with thin texture and flat carbonation. Short and soft bitter finish.
Overall: IPA nowhere. Pretty plain, too smooth. Not memories at all. anselhelm (1) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2017 does not count
I honestly don’t get why so many people dislike this. It’s annoying too as I actually now have to place special orders from the Greene King café to get this, since nowhere in Essex seems to now stock it!
In short, this is a lovely smooth ale with a mild aroma and a pleasant taste. It’s nothing like the fizzy piss water that passes for beer these days and unlike other beers it actually tastes good at room temperature if you haven’t chilled it.
I’m not someone who can easily use the standard descriptors for taste, but I’ll say this: if you hate lagers or fizzy beers, give it a try. If you like those heavily carbonated beers, then you’ll probably hate this. Sparkz (7) - - MAR 27, 2017 does not count
Greene king IPA is never an IPA (right now that line is done).
Sharpness, very bland, mild malt, watery, really underpowered for 3.6%.
Not much else I can say. Tin aroma.
In my opinion it’s worse that the normal greene king IPA. You can gather the flavour remotely from it but the rest is just smooth flow rubbish (to make it milder). Drinkable but just doesn’t satisfy.
As an added note. When I opened these, each can just splashed out froth. I did the usual method of tapping the top of the can but no luck. I even let 1 sit on the side for 48 hours, then tapped the top and still froth everywhere.
Overall, Greene king IPA isn’t an IPA. Greene king IPA smooth also isn’t an IPA but it just isn’t as satisfying as the standard Greene king IPA (in comparison).
Only buy these if they are super cheap. Otherwise go and buy some Boddingtons or Worthingtons (cheaper and a similar taste) MiroMcSky (313) - Neudamm, POLAND - JUL 3, 2016
Puszka 440 ml,kolor bursztynu,bez piany i wysycenia.Slaba IPA nie polecam.Bez charakteru wodniste ,nie pijalne. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Pours pale. Mostly smells like barley malt but with a bit of bitternrss. A welcome deviation from the pale lagers that prevail all over rural China.

Can from local Yamaya store. Nose of caramel, biscuit, hay, quite floral, too. Pours out like a latte coffee, settles to a dark orange/amber color with a creamy white head. Flavors are primarily light caramel and very small hopping. Lots of mineral character. Thin body, very little carbonation. Smooth indeed (nitro can). Flavors are way too thin for an IPA.

Can. Amber colour with dense white head. Not much aroma, malty taste. Light body. josanguapo (1862) - SPAIN - NOV 6, 2015
From carrefour. In Ikea’s pint glass. After dinner. Really smoothness feel and nice long-lasting. foam. However, I find it pretty odorless and tasteless. I cant say that ive enjoyed it more than a typical industrial lager. Has nothing of an IPA
