Deep gold. Aroma - grainy grassy hops. Taste - caramel malt base with some grassy earthy and slightly spicy hops. A touch of fruitiness that lends a bit of sweet to it. Low bitterness for an IPA but easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChiGuy68 (599) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2017
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden hue with a bubbly off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma of a macro brewed pilsner. Malt and mild hop taste. I would not have guessed that this was an IPA if it didn’t say so on the bottle. It doesn’t suck, but not what I’m looking for in an IPA.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Light hoppy notes up front. Some soapiness to it. A bit of a metallic twang to it. Very mild old school IPA. Some bready flavors as well. A little vegetal. Not a very good IPA.

jjsint (3093) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Keg at the Flying Pig, Cambridge. Deep golden and clear. Heavily carbonated with a large but quickly disappearing white head. A fair bit of lacing is left. Light resin, citrus, cantaloupe, banana in the nose. I’m used to IPAs with exciting aromas and the passive nature of this one is a bit of a surprise. Simple bittersweet taste. Not so much to it although it’s agreeable. Some slightly astringent hop bitterness near the end. Melon on the aftertaste. Heavy carbonation on the palate. Well-enough put together that it can survive being on the bland side.

DavyK (135) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2017
Can from Asda. Aroma is faint. Bit of grain and corn. Lovely golden colour, thin lacing. Really tight palate: bright resin and bitterness, but overall taste doesn't linger. Decent, for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
MrTipple (4966) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Grain and cereal malts, caramel, floral hops, light grass, wet straw. Clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More pale grain malts, caramel, more floral hops, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Unexciting IPA. Keg at Euston Tap, Euston.
