COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Fin (10156) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Mum and Keith, purchased from Whitby beer shop, consumed at home Tuesday 21st March 2017, another non beer night when I naughtily drinking a beer. A fairly pedestrian IPA, lacks a little in the hoppiness and bitterness departments. Light fruitiness, deep gold in colour, it’s ok. A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov11 2.9

YantarCoast (1190) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 15, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel and malt, light hoppy notes. Taste is sweet and caramelly, low bitterness and low hops. Not bad, but not a very believable IPA. I've tasted hoppier lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DutchDrebus (5766) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle @ home. Dark golden colour with a nice white head. Smells malts, pilsener. Tastes like a pilsener but with less carbo. Super easily drinkable and okay, but not an ipa.

stouby (4568) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle at home.Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma medium malty (caramel, roasted) and hoppy (piney, citrusy). Flavoe medium sweet and bitter, then more bitter, long lasting. Medium body.

visionthing (5063) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2016
33cl bottle from Viking XPRS. Pours clear deep golden to amber with a somewhat short-lived head. Rather malty and caramelly aroma with some fruity notes and hints of citrus and herbs. Medium sweet and not very hoppy with a fairly light bitterness. Completely drinkable, but far from a decent IPA in my book.

Echon (476) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2016
Light amber. Lightly malty with a minute hop profile. Lightly sweet taste with a dry and solidly bitter finish. Meidum body. Overall, an average IPA. It is lacking in flavour and aroma hops, but makes up for it with lots of IBUs.

SilkTork (5663) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
330ml bottle for £1 at Key & Anchor. Shirley. Malt accented beer with an American accent. Not really to my taste, but cheap enough. Some fresh hops would lift it. Drinkable, though not that attractive.
