Nice clear-brown colour, medium head.
The small is pretty common.
The taste is dominated by a standard english ale bitterness and a metallic feel. The citrus feel given by the multiple hops used can only be found on the bottle advertising.
Nothing to really stand out.

From bottle, pours a ever so slightly hazey golden colour with a small white head that disapates to a small layer.
Aroma grains, citrus, lemon, toffee.
Taste toffee, grassy, lemon. Not to bad.

Decent looking beer with creamy head, light aroma of hops, pine, citrus. Taste is hoppy with a hint of citrus(grapefruit/pineapple) and an abrupt finish, kind of dry. the citrus tang keeps it interesting. Not as bad as I thought after some of the reviews below.

From Hipercor, last units. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Not what is expected from an IPA nowdays. Very drinkable but low on aroma and bitterness. Avg 3.11.

8 apr 2017. From Alcampo. New label. In ikea's pint glass. At lunch after futsal match. With fideos soup + fried fish (acedias & squids) Not much aromatic nor fruity but very drinkable with pleasant caramelish notes that gets better as it warms up. Leaved me thirsty for more

Poor Brittish IPA of a transparent dark orange color.
It smells just like a standard lager, but at least the taste is not bad - there are some ok malt tones.
And oh, they shouldn't call this an IPA...
