trif (1) - - JUN 26, 2013 does not count
Bland ruby ale with a nice enough malty overtone. Claims to be an IPA with a hoppy aftertaste, but is badly lacking to justify that claim

Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. This is an odd duck of a bitter with odd smokey and funky hop notes. Not a favorite.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
500ml bottle. dark copper colour. aroma is smoky and slightly hoppy. taste was very interesting (as was aroma) and i was confused. says it’s an IPA on the bottle. categorised on here as a bitter. but it was extremely smoky and complex unlike a normal bitter. not sure how i would categorise it but it tasted great. just not what i expected.

SarkyNorthener (4784) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Bottle. Brownish bronze ale with no head and minor lacing. Aroma of yeast. Taste is also yeast with caramel and lots of dry malts. Average bitter, don’t know where the IPA moniker comes from.

Pours a red/brown colour, taste is nutty with some malts, toffee on the palate

A clear copper pint with a malty smell. It tastes quite hoppy and has a strong toasted-type edge to it with a hint of caramel. For my taste the smokiness is a bit much once I drink more of it but it’s not bad.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Slightly yeasty nose with a lot of sweet malt. Pours amber without much life. Flavour is a little bit dirty socksy with some caramel malt. All told a pretty average bitter and it suffers from being wrongly labelled as an ipa, wrongly pictured on here, and generally being an attempt by the brewer to throw anything they can from what they consider fashionable beer styles at it in the hope something will stick to what is, ultimately, a bit of a limping scrod of a bitter.

2.8
kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2012
The head is medium, the body red-brown. The taste is mild, malty, earthy and dry. In the aftertaste it is medicin-bitter, flowery, orange. Overall a bit to bitter, medicin. Not bad but not my taste. 11/8/7/7/11/8

3.3
RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Reddish brown pour. Not much of a head. Nose doesn’t reveal anything special. Some malt and nuts. NIce medium body mouthfeel with some faint hops on the finish.

2.6
gowdy (1115) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle from Ellon drunk in Strasbourg. Fairly small head. Deep brown colour, perhaps slightly hazy.
