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.

0,66L bottle, BB 14.10.2014 (shared by suurjuust, thanks! ). Pours slightly murky amber with big white head. The head stays. Aroma is malt, caramel, slightly metallic, hint of pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, citrus, and fruits. Finish is pine bitter and caramel sweetness. Alcohol is rather well covered. Overall: not bad, but was expecting more.

Cunningham (4340) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 4, 2014
Appearance: Unclear dark golden color with a thick off white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Hoppy, roasted malt and mild tropical fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet, and a fresh bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Hoppy, mild tropical fruity and roasted malt.
Overall impression: In The Old World I would have enjoyed this one. Today I prefer The New World IPA.
Personal stats: Bottle from Nettorder at Systembolaget, Norway

Flot øl med en meget kraftig og lidt sprittet og gæret duft. Kraftig og krydret smag med klare alkoholtoner.

mgajdaczewa (449) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Nieudane piwo, choć tragedii nie ma. Aromat początkowo bardzo nieprzyjemny, ściera, lekki ocet, po ustaniu wychodzi przyjemniejszy, winno kwiatowy aromat. W smaku niska gorzyczka o przyprawowym charakterze, średnio pełne, lekki jabłkowo - octowy, niezbyt przyjemny posmak. Nie polecam.

Senap (334) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2014
Fyllig och trivsam. Funkar utmärkt till en kryddig wok. Något mindre fruktig en "moderna" varianter.

66cl bottle best before 14-10-14. Nose: very English, doughy, some hops. Taste: sweeter than expected: malt, caramel and some bitterness. Ok, not more

Cool_Bond (1251) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Good smell of much caramel and fruit. The taste is quite bitter with some roasted malt. Bitterness in the aftertaste fills the mouth with a good fruity taste for a long time. Good beer but not particularly special. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (40:-). Maltig och fruktig, kryddor, gräs, en del rostade toner, medelfyllig till fyllig, medelsöt, ganska bra beska. Besk avslutning med rostade toner.
