Noodler's Upper Ganges Blue (3oz Bottled Ink) is rated 4.2083 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a specific purpose As part of my job, I have to post numbers in a small book that no-one thought would be FP-friendly. The ink has to be blue, it cannot bleed or feather, and it has to be absolutely waterprrof for legal reasons. People didn't think that anything but a ballpoint could do the trick. It took a few trials, but Upper Ganges Blue is great for this. I use an XF Estie nib, and it just works out great. The best thing about this ink is that the blue doesn't run, period. I've known some water-resistant that a portion of the blue runs, while the rest stays. That doesn't happen here. What goes on the paper, stays on the paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Stunner I've tried a number of blue inks from Noodler's. Very lovely shades yet very dark. Upper Ganges Blue has a bright side to it that is almost contagious. It's a smooth flowing ink, possibly the smoothest I've ever tried from Noodler's brand. It's a keeper!Thanks again to the team at Goulet Pen Company for your excellent service

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Solid Blue This is a good solid blue ink. I did expect it to be brighter though; it's not as bright a blue as I expected. However I have only tested it in a Waterman Finenibbed hemisphere, which writes fairly wide for a Fine, and quite wet. This ink is very much like the blue of modern blue Quink Ink, and is, while not chalky as some others have said, seems to have either a more ... grey tinge or violet overtone. It's very much a blue compared to Bad Belted Kingfisher, and is a pleasant smooth writer to write with without overwhemling the page or the writing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kind of a lighter version of BBH or BBK This is a lubricious ink. It has good flow as well. It is one of those Noodler's bulletproof inks that writes a little wider than others. It is waterproof (nothing happens with a spill), but the wet line my pen put down could be smudged a little with some rubbing, wet or dry. It is relatively easy to clean out of the pen. It is not a vibrant blue and looks to me like it is sort of in the same general family of slightly greenish blues as Bad Blue Heron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely soft grey-blue I like this ink much more than I expected. Although it is not particularly dark, it has a pleasing softness to its appearance. It's blue, but with a grey tint to it that softens the blueness. I particularly like it on creamy Rhodia paper, although it looks good on white paper too. This ink, to me, is the blue equivalent of the beautiful soft purple Kung Te-Cheng. It doesn't scream for attention, but it makes me feel happy when I see it on the page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serene I got this in an Ink Drop batch and I love it. After having read some less than encouraging reviews, I wasn't expecting to be so knocked out by this ink. A saturated deep, denim blue, it goes on nice and wet and dries to a beautiful chalky hue. I'd encourage anyone interested to try a sample as I don't think the online colour swabs do it proper justice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulletproof, not beautiful So I ordered a sample of Polar Blue at the same time and tried that one first. It feathered like crazy and was so washed out it was just plain ugly. Upper Ganges has some behavior issues too, but it is leaps and bounds more vibrant looking. However, when you put it side by side with something like Liberty's Elysium there's no comparison in vibrancy. If you need fully bulletproof, I'd recommend Upper Ganges, if not, Liberty's Elysium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less Green Than Expected I tested this ink in a Lamy Safari with Fine Nib on Rhodia Premium Block R paper and on an Apica 6A10 Notebook. Color: I was most surprised by the lack of much green/turqoise shading. The ink, when wet has this shade, but those tones seem to dry out of it. The finished product is a muted blue with a little grayer appearance than I had expected. Flow: The ink seems to flow very easily, making the Lamy Fine Nib appear at least as broad as a what I'm used to with a Lamy Medium Nib. The feeling is smooth, with no skipping. The line width increase was more apparent on the Apica 6A10 paper than on the Rhodia Premium R paper. Drying: The ink dried quickly on both papers, around 5 seconds on the Apica 6A10 and between 5 and 10 seconds on the Rhodia Premium R paper. Overall: The ink was a little different hue when dry than I had hoped. I was looking for something to imitate Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki, and this isn't it. It's a nice color on it's own though.
