Lacking a certain something, echoing the comments below, this is deffo a bitter with lots of hops. Maybe it fits the IPA style in the older, original sense but not by modern tastes. Still, hoppy with a pleasant malt, and easily drinkable. As below, I also was surprised to pick up beers like this in a wyevale garden centre (raglan).

Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, piana niska. W aromacie karmel, trochę takiej skórki od chleba, owoce kandyzowane, coś jakby rodzynki. W smaku podobnie, pełne, goryczka niewysoka.

Bottle, curiously, from my local Wyevale garden centre. Pours clear dark amber with a small lasting off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, perfumed, hoppy, caramel and floral. Very sweet to taste, little bitterness. Towards medium body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. Sweet finish. Too sweet overall.

misonemo (8) - Žilina, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 22, 2017 does not count
Bottle from Lidl. Clear copper colour with quickly vanishing head. Aroma of caramel, candied fruit, raisins. Taste bitter, slight notes of aromatic hops, Body medium, solid carbonation . Palate bitter and quite dull. Dont know what the I.P.A on the bottle stands for but it is definitely not IPA but bitter intead. Average.

stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle from Lidl, Longford [100617]
Copper, clear, small head dissipating to nothing like a cider
Aroma of light citrus hops, caramel malts, light fruity malts
Taste of fruity caramel malts, touch of citrus, light bread, brown malt fruits
Palate - Soft carbonation which quickly dissipated away, flat and thin, light sweet fruity malts. FInish is a bit dry, then some sweet soft fruity caramel malt
Overall - Iffy bottle, flat as a pancake, not right

Flaska z Lidlu. Sklamanie. Slaba pena a ziadna IPA horkost sa nedostavila...

Davros IX (449) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2017
An English IPA with bitter hops and some malt. It was good, but I have had better. It lacked a complexity of flavour that you get in the better versions of this.

john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle. Copper in colour. Hoppy; grassy spicy hops. Fruity; citrus-fruit. Malty; sweet malts, caramel, hint of toffee. Refreshing, crisp, nice dryness, some saltiness. Nice balance; sweet malty with bitter hop. Dry lingering bitter finish. But not too bitter. Tasty. Very drinkable. (2010-01)
