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.

Kurtos (196) - Sydney, - FEB 14, 2013
Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

(Flesje) Verrassende ipa ruikt fris is ook fruitig van smaak en heeft zijn bittertje maar vooral zijn nasmaak is gewoon verrassend te noemen. Zachte nasmaak voor een ipa met fruit (volgens mij ananas/citrus) die in je neus blijft hangen waardoor je nog een slok wilt nemen.

Fin (10170) - 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 (1205) - 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 (5771) - 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.

visionthing (5080) - 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 (479) - 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.
