Poured into english pint.
Pours clear orange/golden beer with thin ring of beige froth, poor retention.
Smell - malty, biscuity.
Taste - biscuity malt balanced by earthy, peppery hops, moderate to light bitterness.
Medium-bodied, good carbonation, dry on palate.
Masterpiece among EIPAs.

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.
