From Carrefour Huelva. In Teku glass. Playing Millenium 2. Better than expected from a supermarket IPA. Not the citric fresh version I prefer. Fruity and duller but still good

Nice, sessionable IPA without too much bitterness

L - copper, no haze, off-white head fades to a thin layer

S - malt, floral honey, anticipation of bitterness without much citrus/tropical/pine

T - strong English malt, some sweetness, clover, not very bitter, not much citrus/tropical/pine, hint of new-car-smell

F - nice feel with medium-high carbonation, even if a little thin

O - This is not an IPA. It tastes just like typical London pub ales, which isn't necessarily bad, but do not grab this if you're an American looking for what you think of as an IPA.
