De Corte Ingles. En vaso de pinta de Ikea. Jugando a Avernum 6. Sorprendentemente agradable viendo el nivelito de su draught stout. Agradable lupulado clasico de corte herbal y terroso algo acaramelado. Color sucio

This offering from Guinness has been a bit misunderstood based on some of the reviews here. Its important to understand that the majority of the hops used in this beer are British. No pale or IPA brewed in the UK will taste like the American versions which use American hops giving them the familiar piney, citrusy, hop forward qualities. British hops tend to have a more earthy, floral quality. The nitro gives the beer a nice creamy mouth feel and the taste is familiar to what you would find in a cask IPA from an English pub. This is a nice change of pace but if you are looking for an American IPA like quality stay clear of this beer.

This is hands down the worst thing I have ever drank. If I was dying of dehydration in the desert and I came across an ice cold Nitro IPA, I would die staring at it thinking how in the world did I end up in this situation. Actually, I'd use it as a tool to help kill myself faster. I guess the reason I give this a 1 (-99 should be an option, ill contact the admin) is for that reason..... i poured the beers in the toilet after 2 sips.

The nitro accentuates the malt and smoothes the hops. The experience is wholly different to a regular IPA. I wouldn't go for it when I want an IPA but it is a nice beer. I do not know why it gets smashed so much here. Probably because it is from a brewing giant. I do not care I enjoy the malts and the smoothness without having to deal with the coffee roast of a regular Guinness. The downside is a bit of a watery taste to it.
