COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
James Squire India Pale Ale is made with only Munich and pale malt, so it brews to a rich, golden colour, with a robust, malty character. Its earthy floral aromas are a result of dry-hopping with English Fuggles hops added in generous amounts directly to the maturation tanks. This India Pale Ale is handcrafted in the traditional style. It is higher in alcohol, effervescent and has a characteristic highly hopped bitterness with a crisp finish on the palate.

Kurtos (222) - Sydney, - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with next to no head Aroma, is very weak but still pleasant. Flavour, this beer delivers mainly malt flavours of caramel-toffee but also has a grapefruit bitterness and a hoppy pine flavour. Overall- this beer is decent, but if you can try and find their brewhouse version on tap, much better then this.

rand (1860) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle 345 m / Bier-Bienne (CH). Coppery beer with an average pale ochre head, little persistent and poured oily. Fruity aromas of orange-apricot, malt and caramel, slight hop. The taste is light, moderate of bitterness, with caramel, roasted and stewed fruits. All this balances for a compromised beer between bitter and soft. Grassy and crispy finale.

Bov (13314) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 15, 2017
from Bier-Bienne - amber-orange beer with a moderate head retention; shy and blur aroma of flowers and caramel; medium-bodied, sweet and gently bitter; mineral and flowery aftertaste - insignificant

Pretty good but more mild malts than bitter hops. Light bodied and smooth, just not really an IPA.

beermaris (271) - LATVIA - AUG 26, 2016
Weak Ipa. Almost no aroma. Taste limited to a few nuances. The same goes to aroma

3.3
Gonzin (187) - ARGENTINA - APR 16, 2016
Probada en botella de 345 ml. IPA de moderado amargor, fácil de tomar. Para ser Australiana está más que aprobada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StevieT (2039) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2016
From a bottle. Well made, more malt flavour than you get with most IPA’s, could be hoppier but still a good beer.

3.2
Bygers (1184) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle 0,345l. Pours a golden amber colour, thin off-white foam head. Aroma of caramel, orange and toffee. Taste is sweet malt caramel with a floral orangey hop tangy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.8
DylansDad (664) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 14, 2015
OK. Aroma and taste are floral, a bit of earth and a good dose of sweetness which, after a while, became almost blackcurrant or maybe blueberry. Too much sweet and not enough bitter for me.
