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.

@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

En speciell IPA får man nog ändå säga.Gräs, blommig i aromen. Likaså i smaken, nästan lite kryddig/chili i smaken.

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 (3006) - 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.

Bottle @ Yespr. Pours clear orange with a lasting small off-white frothy head. Aroma is grass, vegetable-ish, toasted malt, phenols. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and very light tart. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes balanced with lingering bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Yeah, pours orange with a nice head. Smell is kinda just not a lot, maybe some sprucy hops, and some honeyish malt, but not much. Taste is very crisp, and quite dry, a very sharp bitterness, with no real hop aroma except some grassiness to come with it, maybe the description of this doesn’t sound that great, but it isn’t bad, it actually is kinda good, just that it’s not an IPA that you normally, or atleast I normally sough for - extremely juicy with tropical fruit & hop bursted, this is not it, this is a nice balance between malt and a sharp bitterness which gives a crisp nice beverage.

Bottle, BBE 10/14, thanks bluus. Pours orange with a good, beige head. Aroma is quite malty, caramel, some citrus and grass as well as a tad of earthiness. Taste is dry, somewhat bitter. Malt-forward though. Dry caramel, orange marmalade, some earthiness. Pencil shavings, some citrus and grass. Full palate with decent carbonation. Feels more like an English strong rather than an Indian pale.
