I picked this up for $20 on sale. After seeing the rating and reviews I wasn’t expecting much but surprise, this is a rather pleasant beer. Like others have noted, it’s a little on the tame side as far as hoppiness for an IPA but there’s definitely some nice hop flavor in there. The malt profile is nice, not too sweet but slightly sweet. There’s nothing bad about this beer. It’s well rounded, hoppy enough for hopheads to enjoy but tame enough to share with non hophead friends.
fantastically hoppy and crisp beer. picked up a whole case of this once marked as "damaged" and had piles of it in the fridge for ages. i remember it well for its dark fruity flavours mixed with the zingy, citrus hop burst. deceptively strong/medium strength too.

Bottled 0,35L. Dark orange color, hazy aspect with good bubbly and short head duration. Soft yeasty and hop aroma, notes of wood and something sweetish malt. Medium prickly mouth, a little bit smooth taste with modest bitterish and unbalanced final. BeerRenter76 (1054) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Tried this on 2-18-09 the bottle says best before 5-08 so... It pours a slightly cloudy amber orange body. Thin off white cap disappated quickly and left some lace. Aroma and flavor was mostly of caramel malts with the bitter hops showing more in the mid and after taste. Overall it was fairly decent, but i wouldnt mind trying a fresh bottle pleispleis (223) - Maccagno, ITALY - APR 21, 2017
bottiglia 355 ml, schiuma beige grossolana evanescente, colore ambrato carico torbia, al naso aroma erbaceo, carbonatazione moderata, in bocca lievemente fruttata malto, corpo scarno molto watery, amaro moderato discreto nel finale. Non mi entusiasma l’uso di un solo luppolo Fuggles- IPA anomala torejh (89) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle. Quite clear, nice copper coloured beer. Floral, grassy hop aroma. Sweet malty and bready taste with a herbal finish. More like a pale ale than an IPA. OK.

Bottiglia 33cl. Colore ambrato - arancio chiaro con schiuma bianca sparita immediatamente. Aroma floreale e leggermente erbaceo. Stessa cosa in bocca, dolce, poco luppolo, piuttosto insignificante. Ok come session beer. N3lson1 (1010) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Not loving the aromas from this brew, (I’m not an IPA guy, but love me some Fuggles!) Would have thought "Malted Wheat" would have made this brew a bit more hazy. But I don’t think I would consider this an IPA, not hoppy enough, brewed 3 months ago, but the fuggles shouldn’t have died out that quickly, needs some more hop oomph to be an IPA. All in all, not a bad brew. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a nice orangish color. Aroma is grassy hops. Flavor of a classic pale, big grassy hop flavor. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Clear veiled amber color. Creamy beige 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes. Strong legs with some powerful activity.
Pleasant aromas and flavors of fruits, citrus, grains, toffee, floral and herbal spices. Strong apple taste being more sweet than sour, with a earthy feel. Crisp, well intensified and good flavors.
Creamy medium body with nice carbonation. Short and faint finish ending with a bitter smoky clove like mouth feel.
Overall : Good freshness and pleasant flavors, but slightly thin and a faint finish. Accessible being a sweet IPA, not too spicy and quite clean. Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear golden colour with white head. Aroma is floral. Taste is floral hops and a malty backbone. Decent beer.
