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.

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.

Bottle@William K. Opaque amber color, white. Hoppy, barleywine aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor with honey. Full body, medium carbonation. Interesting.

adster (497) - 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.

Kita (1337) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, 0.66l, shared with Yoo. Hazy deep amber color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of resin hops, citrus, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows by refreshing fruitiness with notes of jam, a bit spicy moutheel and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Nicely balanced English IPA with well hidden alcohol level...

fourpack (68) - NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Completely flat. The aromas smell a lot like Punk IPA from Brewdog just not as intense. Leaves your tounge dry after tasting. While Punk IPA might be a little bit too much flavor this one has a little bit too litle.

jamestulloch (1841) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle, gift from Andrew. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade and caramel. Flavour of blood orange, earth and a faint alcohol burn. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A decent IPA, though not particularly drinkable for its strength.

MarkoNm (1108) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 4, 2014
Pour a clear orangey color, topped with decent beige colored head, OK retention. Pleasant fruity aroma, some spices also picked up. The taste starts nice and fruity, followed by some decent bitterness in the finish. Some spices also there. Nice.

Satyroneto (186) - BRAZIL - JUL 26, 2014
Cor dourada com tons de mel e espuma branca de média formação e média persistência com bom lacing; Aroma de caramelo e laranja cristalizada; Sabor de caramelo e frutas cítricas amarelas (laranja) com pouco amargor no final; Corpo médio e carbonatação média; Boa, mas nada demais.
