Small big bubbled head. But it leaves some excellent lace (blanketing the glass). The liquid is caramel brown and is crystal clear.

Mild smell that reminds me of a mild ale. Certainly not an IPA.

Lots of crystal malt flavor up front. The body seems flat, even for a cask conditioned beer. Little hop--this is very much improperly named--I think British Mild, not IPA. As a mild it is mediocre. As an IPA it clearly misses the mark.

Got it from England.

A - Ruby reddish color,with almost not any foam. Lots of bubbles.
S - Very poor,nothing exited.
T/M - Can't feel anything because of huge unpleasant carbonation. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Watery taste. As i drink some cheap supermarket beer.

O - So,ether this beer is really bad,ether something was wrong with this bottle i got. Huge disappointed for this beer. It said on the bottle so many positive things,so this IPA must be much,much better then it is. Also,where is IPA taste in it?
I know what i drink,and this is so bad.

I flew to London and got this?!? Seriously?!?

This is a bad beer and an awful IPA. I dumped it in the street and got something different.

My first home brew in college was substantially better than this.

No hop smell or taste. Very malty. Sort of like Lillian's Irish red.

Avoid

I was on a layover at Heathrow and was in the mood for a nice, hoppy IPA. What I got instead was this. I knew something was off when I could barely smell any hops. My first taste convinced me they pulled the wrong beer. I sent it back and watched them pull another. It was the same. It's not an awful beer, but it is an awful "IPA."

Overall, meh. I would not come back to this well again.
