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.

blankboy (7273) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
[Bottle (660ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a murky orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruit, light candi sugar, biscuity malt, piney hops and...not sure. Flavour of biscuity malt, piney hops, fruit and a long bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Something a bit odd about this one that I can’t place but either way, it’s good.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
2014-09-26. Hazy orange body with a modest beige head. 3++ Aroma is lightly earthy, green vegetation, tropical fruit. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, modest tropical fruit and mild green hop vegetation Smooth average bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. Decent, already showing some signs of age which is disappointing. Bottle, BB Oct 10 2014 from Appelation Wine, Edinburgh.

Cloudy orange color, average sized white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, roast, fruits. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Peaches and oranges in taste. Very fruity. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Great looks, great body, great scent. Very sexy IPA.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Lekker Bier, batch 246 BB 14-10-14, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Soft aroma of piney and grapefruit hops, some biscuity malts, slight citrus. Not quite fresh enough to properly appreciate the aroma Im afraid. Medium bitter in taste, slight sweet caramel. Seems to be very decent stuff, like the punk IPA, but I should get a fresher bottle.

rotaman14 (561) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Ergießt sich orangen ins Glas, mit einer kleinen weißen Schaunkrone. Angenehmer Geruch von Hopfen, Orange, Grapefruit. Der Orangengeschmack fällt viel weniger intensiv aus, als das Aroma. Auch fällt der Hopfengeschmack leider viel zu schwach aus.

tlind2 (1604) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle@William K. Opaque amber color, white. Hoppy, barleywine aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor with honey. Full body, medium carbonation. Interesting.

adster (685) - HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2014
Illatában visszafogott, gyógynövényes komló, kekszes maláta aromája rajzolódik ki, majd az angolos jelleget erősítendő a jól ismert vajas, édeskés és szúrósan élénk vázon krétaporos, nemes penészes színezettel szembesülünk a kóstolása során, amit egy orvosságos komlós zárás foglal megingathatatlanul komoly keretbe. Annak ellenére, hogy az utóbbi időben számtalanszor volt alkalmam megtapasztalni a brit ale-ek karakterisztikáját, és igazság szerint nem ez az, ami a legközelebb áll a szívemhez, ha indiai változatáról esik szó, érdemeit minden további nélkül elismerem. Látszik, hogy a stílus egy kifogástalan modorú képviselőjéről van szó, amiben valóban húzódik egyfajta őserővel bíró hagyományosság.
