From Marks and Spencer's. Nice Burton style IPA. Fruity citric nose, firmly bitter with sulfates evident. Nicely done but burtonising seems to replace flavour with bitterness somewhat. And a touch thin.

Pours golden/amber, fizzy and very carbonated, with a medium white head and some lacing. Aroma is lager malts and hops, to understand that the IPA in its name it’s a fraud! Tastes bitter, lager malts, some lemony notes, thin body, lively carbonation. Feel like a boring lager with 1 hop cone in it. Boring boring boring. gripweed57 (2461) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2017
From old tasting notes. Amber orange color topped by a fine creamy beige head. Soft fruity malt aroma. Faint malt flavor has a brief bitter backdrop. Very peppery and dry. SarkyNorthener (4620) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle for my birthday from in laws. Golden amber beer with large head. Aroma of malts. Taste is dry malt, spice, dried fruit, citrus and hop bitterness. OK. scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2017
Marks & Spencer bottling. This is OK! It’s certainly the original style of IPA rather than the very hoppy style of today’s craft brewers. It is hoppy but in a gentle way. It’s alright! john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle. Golden in colour. Fruity; citrus orange and lemon. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Slightly metallic taste. Citrus fruity hoppy bitterness over sweet malts. (2010-01)

Bottle (as M&S Staffordshire IPA). Amber pour with a quickly dissipating white head. Flat body. Aromas of pear and grapefruit. Same doo-dah in the flavour. Light bitter finish. Standard stuff. LakatosKE (465) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2016

0.5l bottle as Staffordshire IPA from M&S. Ara of malts and hops, citrus fruits, dates and floral notes. Hazy amber color, no head. Malty and hopy taste, orange and floral notes, less bitter than an average IPA. Light body, oily texture, average carbonation and bitter finish with floral notes. Easy drinking.
