I'm reviewing it here because that's the right abv.
Pours clear golden, one finger compact white head with nice retention.
Smells like a typical EIPA, caramel and biscuit, honey, infused with mild citrus hops, maybe a bit more on the sweet malty side.
Starts with buttered malts, biscuits, caramel, with a touch of fruit jam, orange peel and some grapefruit. Some floral hints too. Malt backbone stands up even when hit by the dry grassy hops, very English, with dry leaves and some tobacco and bitter grass going past the finish, along with some faint sweet citrus.
A tiny bit buttery, body somewhere between light and medium, as is the carbonation.
Easy to drink, maybe a bit boring for big hop fanatics, but has that Fuller's "session" quality.

Got it in Hungary.

A - Very beautiful honey color. Lots of bubbles at first. White foam, but do not last to long.
S - Mostly dark honey with some orange aroma.
T/M - A bit more carbonation in the glass. Again sweetness from malt, honey. Excellent bitterness, and bitter aftertaste. Nothing else.

O - Decent IPA, will drink it again.

From notes:

Smell mainly malty.
Lovely prickly fine grained bottle-conditioned carbonation.
Taste dry on the tongue, surrounded by fruits/dried fruits and a hint of bitterness followed by a lovely bitter finish. Tastes merge, there's an ebb and flow from one taste to another all bound up with that lovely prickly bottle-conditioned carbonation.

This is probably the first IPA I've drunk - certainly the first since I discovered the joys of tasting and really savouring beers. Let's just say I can see what all the fuss is about ;-)

4.2/5  rDev +8.2%

A: Copper, slightly cloudy, tonnes of fine bubbled carbonation, a finger of slightly yellow coloured creamy head. Nice lacing.

S: Caramel, popcorn, buttery, toffee, slightly fruity.

T: Caramel, popcorn, buttery, toffee, slightly fruity, then a sudden hit of light (as compared to American IPA’s) grapefruit pith, but it fades into a all these flavours and a dull lingering bitterness which is slightly in the background. Almost a bit of green olive.

M: Medium bready body, low foamy fine bubbled carbonation.

O: Well rounded, delicious and drinkable beer with a great bottle and label by a great company. Would pair with anything greasy, slightly spicy food.

3.51/5  rDev -9.5%

0.5 litre bottle in pint glass. Nice white head, and loads of bubbles. Head settles to a small layer quite fast. Color is a light gold, almost pilsner.

Smell: Subtle fruits and a bit earthy, yeasty. A tree right after it has rained. Malts.

Taste: It starts with light malts, then some yeast, hoppy bitterness with a slight touch of citrus. Again something earthy. Some apricots, sour peaches. Later it gets a bit more spicy, but everything stays subtle.

Mouth: dry. Good carbonation, and very drinkable. This really wants to go down.

Overall: yeah this is a nice beer. Very balanced, but also quite light. For me it's missing something. It's not cheap here, and for the price I'd choose something else most of the time I think. But there's really nothing wrong with this beer either.
