Jonb5 (559) - Greater London, - NOV 27, 2012
Golden colour, clear, small head which didn’t hang around long. Aroma was pine and citrus, the cascade hop was also prominent. Tasted lemon, maris otter malt and some apple. Finish was long wheaty and bitter. Fairly light body, crisp texture with some carbonation. Very well balanced IPA, no weaknesses.

Butelka 500 ml . Zloty kolor. Piana mala o bialym kolorze,opada natychmiast. Wyrazne nuty owocow tropikalnych w zapachu podparte cytrusami. W smaku dosc slodkawe:mango ,marakuja i ananas,pozniej pojawia sie grejpfrutowe albedo i goryczkowy finisz. Ok

Als Proper Job Cornish IPA, recht klares goldgelb üppiger schaum, im Geruch hopfig ganz leicht fruchtig malzig harzig, so spiegelt es sich auch im Geschmack wieder dazu kommt noch eine kräftige Hefe Note und eine kräftig säuerlich herbe Note

Wow powerful tasting hoppy crammed ale from Cornwall. Fantastic summer ale for me that can be served very cold without losing flavour.

Piepenhenrich (1171) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2017
Pours clear golden with little head. Aroma is hops, flavors are a fond blend of hoppy bitter notes and fruity elements. A well-balanced hoppy brew.

Hopverdju (1429) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2017
Helder blond bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: licht zoet, fruitig, biscuit, maar alles subtiel. Smaak: hoppig, strak bitter, iets snoeperig, fruitig, wat sinaasappel zeste met wit vruchtvlees, doet denken aan marmelade. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter, fruitig, zeste. Aangename IPA.

Copenhagen 4/9 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Part of a three bottle gift box. Drawing of some hops to underline that this is indeed an IPA. Just to be sure the message gets through it says "Powerfully Hopped"in big letters. Pours slightly hazy yellow with big white head. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is fairly strong and fruity. Sweet exotic fruit slightly overpowered by more citric odors. Grape fruit, orange peel and citrus. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong citric bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and finish dry. Actually it lives up to it's name. Nice bitter, IPA, where they use the American Hops without overdoing it.

steveddy (31) - Chichester, West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
Pours nicely, none of the sediment bottle warns of. Very hoppy on the nose. Slightly bitter with hops again following through. A good English IPA.

GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 16, 2017
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of hops with malt. Bitter taste and finish. Nice stuff.

Bijl (770) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag, iets wazig, wat drijvende deeltjes Gist, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Fruitig en licht tropisch, Citrus, grapefruit, pijnboom en moutig. Geen hopbom maar alles vrij subtiel. Smaak: Prima zoetige mouten als basis, brood/biscuit, goed gehopt... aroma verbloemde het een beetje maar flink pijnboom/hars en netelig. Tropisch... grapefruit en Citrus, iet scherp als citroenschil en wat kruidig. Iets aarde/mossig en houtachtig....echt goed gehopt en grassig bitter. Nog wat fruitigheid van de gist en iets floraal bloemig. Indeed a Proper Job. Medium body, redelijk koolzuur, grassig en bittere afdronk....vrij droog. Ik vind hem goed!

Aromat cytrusowy, lekko zywiczny, mango. Barwa ciemnozlota klarowna - przywodzi na mysl Ipe z zachodnich stanów. W smaku glównie silna grejpfrutowa goryczka oraz owoce tropikalne w tym mango. To jeden z najmocniejszych punktów tego piwa, jest naprawde owocowo, lekko zywicznie, karmelu jest niewiele. Cialo relatywnie niewielkie, wysycenie srednie, goryczka przyjemnie zalega, nie jest mega agresywna. Bardzo przyjemna IPA, na opakowaniu nie podano konkretnej odmiany stylu ale stawialbym, ze to West Coast.
