UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 Fairly well hopped, somewhat bitter, hints of resin, marmalade, herbs. Decent beer. kapusil (1505) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 13, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 0.5l bottle. Clear orange body with an off white head. The aroma is a bit weak, but the taste is pleasant. Caramel and toast represents the malts escorted by a bit of cloves and a generous amount of spicy British hops. Drinkable IPA for sure.

Pre-dinner bottle at a friends house where we had been invited for Sunday lunch. A true English IPA with lots of bitter hops, nicely balanced malt and pleasant mouthfeel. The alcohol was well masked and the abv took me by surprise when I had a closer look at the label. This was my sort of beer and could encourage me to visit Sainsbury's to explore the rest of their own label range. Graeme1989 (4) - - NOV 10, 2017 does not count
The floral taste outdoes the hops a little too much. Not a bad IPA just not really the best. At least it is more aligned to a traditional ABV%

For a shop IPA it is quite ok and the nose is quite agreeable as well as taste. Palate rather short but for a quiet dinner in London its pk.

500 ml bottle, from a Sainsbury Local in Whitton, London. ABV is 5.9%. Golden colour, large to moderate white head. Aroma of toffee and yellow fruits, a hint of sulphur. Medium dry flavour, fairly well hopped, some sulphur from the Burton water. DrDre (1) - SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2017 does not count
Far too bitter, Was expecting a smooth and refreshing drink. The alcohol is very poorly hidden. Holmen1 (6466) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2017
Flaske delt med Willy på brygga: klar gylden med fint skum som varer. Innbydende, floral og fruktig aroma og smak med citrus, blomster og karamell i en elegant balansert maltkropp. Lang, ren og god ettersmak. Superlettdrikkelig. john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle. Pale Amber in colour. Hoppy; bitter grassy hops. Fruity; citrus lemon. Malty; biscuity malts, buttery caramel. Bitter citrus hops dominate slight malts. Bitter hoppy finish. Slightly harsh with a rather medicinal taste. (2010-12)

Long bitterness with herbal notes. Some skunk and grains in the meantime. Nothing to do with IPA.
