COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bottle contains an India Pale Ale from a bygone era. An era of towering sailing ships, burgeoning empires and world shaping beers. This is an ale hand crafted with British malts and English hops to recreate the epic IPAs that were sent on monumental ocean voyages from England to India by sea in the 1800s.

Old World IPA is an attempt by punk post modern Scottish Brewers to pay tribute to a 200 year old odyssey and heritage with a healthy dose of swash-buckling adventure.

Niall73 (1328) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Tap at Drafthouse, Northcote Road. 06/06. Pours an orange/amber with a slightly off white head. Aroma has a light sweatiness, rye, caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Fairly sweet to start with caramel, a little orange marmalade, toasted rye bread, light pine leading to a decent woody bitter finish. Nice.

Bottle from Systembolaget. This tasted a lot like stale tea, not pleasant at all, was expecting a lot more.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle, 66cl, 7.5% abv) Hazy, amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Fruity and slightly resiny hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, grapefruit and a touch of nutty cara-malt. Moderately bitter flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Delicately bready cara-malty base with resiny, herbal and slightly fruity hops; moderately dry and bitter finish with assertively earthy, herbal and slightly resiny hoppy notes; also a touch of alcohol is detectable. 22.IV.14

DroolYeast (206) - Odder, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
Draft @ BrewDog Edinburgh. Not much aroma... Weird. Some pine maybe. Bad keg? Hazy light amber with virtually no head. Yeasty, moderate bitterness, light sweetness. Finish is bittersweet. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Weird aftertaste. Seems like a bad keg, just look at the other ratings.

Thanks. 500 ml. bottle split with 3 @ “Procrastinated Spontaneity /…………/ 2 Boekjes” tasting @ Gent. Pours a darker amber, nice big off-white creamy head. Nose is medicinal, dusty, bit weak with some pine resin in the back and cough syrup. Taste of bitter herbs which outnumber herbal pine resin, burned sugar, cough medicine, quite herbal, caramelized oranges. Substantial body. Not a big fan of this, this felt like drinking cough medicine for me.

Very nice IPA with yellow red colour and creamy head. Citrus and caramel aroma and sweet maltynes taste. Medium body, medium fruity and ritch aftertaste. Shame it seem to be a Limited edition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
