EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The aroma is purely of yeast, and the color is an orangeish brown with a minimal white head. The taste is mildly sour, slightly bitter, and slightly salty, but the palate combines a bitter finish, a soft carbonation, a light body, and a thin texture.

varanid99 (1388) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2013
Copper pour with a pale brown creamy head. Very little aroma - maybe a little toast? Flavour is biscuity, but watery, little flavour and very little bitterness. Disappointing...a bit bland.

Oscbert (1323) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
~Sweet bready malt aroma, some fruitiness, but not sure what, maybe raisin. Kind of candy like. Floral hop character.
~Pours very clear amberish brown color with quickly disappearing head
~Bready malty flavor with light toastiness, some sweetness, earthy hop.
~Light medium bodied, with medium low CO2, some tongue numbing, toasty bready finish.
~Not too bad. I could drink a few of these, but wouldn’t buy again.

dogbomb (1255) - ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Dark rusty gold with lots of bubbles. Yellowish thin head. Malty nose with a hint of grapefruit rind. A little ginger and spice in the mouth, with grapefruit bitterness and some malt sweet. A touch of honey. A bit bland though. Expect much more from this style.

2.5
smaynard6000 (1251) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a sparkling copper color with foamy white head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Flavor is somewhat hoppy but subdued and watery. Little body here and just a tiny bit of bitterness that rapidly disappears in the finish. Mediocre and disappointing.

3.2
scotty (1227) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle, Morrisons. Deepish gold, very thin white head, nice malty/hoppy citrus nose. Medium body, sweetish malt with some good citrus hops. Nice!

Thisis12ptfont (1225) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Unique aroma of rye and dark malts. Deep brownish copper color. Nice, flavorful malts with notes of toffee, brown sugar, maple, oak and caramel. Overall, doesn’t taste at all like an IPA but it’s pretty good. I’d give this a C rating.

2.7
polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel malts and spicy citrus hops. Dark amber hue with a small white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery average. Weak IPA.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Malty bittersweet nose reminiscent of an unspecial ESB. The flavour follows. The vaguest hint of hops in there but really, do these guys have any idea? Basically it’s a bog standard ESB like a tanglefoot or an abbot and made the worse by a cloying finish and over-carbonation. Poor.

1.9
dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2013
If this had 20% more body it would have been decent. As is, it was dark water with a slight hoppiness. Needs some balls.
