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.

pivnizub (8793) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle: Light amber coloured, not completely clear, small persistent off-white foamy layer; exotic fruits and strong herbal-medical aromas in the moderate to solid bitter-sweet nose; quite robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; dryish - surely not completely dry - lingering bitter and medical finish with losds of balancing caramel.Good stuff, but not really exciting…

Hoppsan (142) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2014
50 cl bottle. Pours hazy, pale amber. Mazarin, vanilla and alcohol in Aroma and taste. Lots of acid and alcohol in taste - unbalanced, but still an alright IPA. Perhaps more true to the predecessor of modern IPAs? In any way, I'm happy even beer science moves forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 22, 2014
@Brewdog Edinburgh. Clear amber orange color with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is weak, malt and hints of citrus, hops and sweetness. Flavor is the same bit quite more alcoholic and malty. Low carbonation and light to medium body with a sweet hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

VictorStr (1264) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2014
En speciell IPA får man nog ändå säga.Gräs, blommig i aromen. Likaså i smaken, nästan lite kryddig/chili i smaken.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
Det här var en god sak, smaken var fruktig och fin med en bra balans. Kroppen var stabil precis som upplevelsen i sin helhet.

tricksta_p (1044) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Aroma of malts, hay, caramel, grassy hops, earthy notes, fruits. Flavour is caramel malts with light bitterness in the aftertaste. A different kind of IPA. Interesting to drink.

Bottle from BrewDog online store (Nov 2013). Hazy copper-orange, 1cm lasting white head, floral/grassy/earthy hops, woody, pencil shavings, resiney bitterness, medium-full body, long dry bitter finish. Not a big, fruit/citrus driven IPA, more subdued, earthy, quite good.
