Smell was fantastic. If only the smell could match the taste. Has a very strong aftertaste of metal. Too much malt, I feel for this type of ale. Overall, a very bad IPA. It was more like a malty bitter ale that was fermented in a brass barrel.

Salve, ho provato questa birra ad una degustazione: la bottiglia si presenta in formato da 50 cl, di forma insolita per i nostri tempi (infatti prodotta secondo il metodo e lo stile delle vecchie IPA). Nel bicchiere la birra ha una schiuma quasi assente e poco persistente di colore bianco, il colore della birra altrettanto particolare, giallo ocra quasi ambrato. Al naso si possono percepire sentori agrumati del luppolo, ma anche di "pezza bagnata" e sfumature dolci che vanno sul cracker/pane fresco., ha una buona intensit olfattiva... In bocca ha un entrata leggera, un corpo non eccessivamente pesante, ritorna lagrumato, esce anche il balsamico, ma si sente di pi la dolcezza data dal malto, si conclude con una certa persistenza amaricante. E una IPA sui generis rispetto a quelle odierne, molto pi spinte, mentre questa pi bilanciata, arrivando a far uscire fuori delle note dolci, poco riscontrabili nelle moderne IPA.

This is the beer equivalent of a person in the witness protection program. Of Kenny G. Of that person from school who didnt cause any trouble but also wasnt funny or interesting. Its so bland and unassertive that it actually becomes offensive.

The first sign is probably in its assertion on the bottle that IPA has "a medium maltiness." Right there you know youre in for trouble. But then, surprisingly, its not cloying or malty but rather immensely bland. Theres some faint malt, a babys breath of hops at the end, and then... nothing. Its fine. Its alright. It beats water. But it doesnt really taste like much, and its nowhere close to an IPA.

But, in its defense, it has a cool bottle. So, points for that.

thanatosti (1664) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2017
50 cl. bottle @ home, gift from my family. Clear amber with a very thin white head. Grainy earthy aroma with some caramel and faint hops. Bitter taste. Almost a lager in aroma and mouthfeel or maybe a bitter. Even for an English IPA its really low on hops. Not bad though,nicely balanced.

bartlebier (3933) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
500ml bbMAR18, Waitrose Hull. - A very distinctively earthy bitter, boldly earthy-bitter like oversteeped black tea down to the lingering finish. Earthy caramel nose, wet dirtfloor, animal sweat. A rare metallic, rusty iron layer in flavour permeates the dried out, woody caramel - a prickpoint of honey and cocoa powder before that deep herbal, green walnut peel bitterness sets in, not in a fruity&flowery way IPA has become popular. Harshish, an odd one out in this interesting regional brewerys output.

Bottle. Amber color, clear liquid, white head. Aroma of old school IPA, but slightly touched with tin of metallic tones and harsh bitterness. Still good though.

Bottle. Orangey Amber in colour. Very Hoppy; leafy floral and grassy hops. Fruity; some citrus fruit. Malty; grainy malts, caramel. Very bitter hoppy and dry throughout with a resinous rather harsh stewed hop taste. OK. Drinkable. (2011-06-04)
