Golden color with frothy off-white head. Aroma has belgian yeast esters, some apples and a light spicy cinnamon note. Taste is grainy, malty, quite sweet, floral, with a light herbal bitterness on the finish. Medium body, high effervescence. It doesn't really taste like an IPA, more like a belgian pale ale.

No mention of John on the label, though bottle is same as the picture!

Flowery aroma, some apricot.

Taste is not as intense or bitter as the best American or English ones, though quite flowery and refreshing. Not particularly bitter, quite sweet for an IPA. More of hoppy Belgian lager really, would not really define this as an IPA...still pretty decent overall.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. After dinner. Easy drinking but not much in nose or taste. Low bitterness for an IPA.

Color: dark amber, slightly hazy. Foam white, fairly good-sized, durable and very nicely adorned with glass. Aroma: delicate, slightly floral, caramel, rather does not look good IPA. Taste: I said it tastes like bitter. Caramel, toffee and butter to it yet. Gentian low, dull, a little "solvent" niepomoga. Saturation high. Alcohol some leaves.
