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.

Lowenbrau (2107) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2014
660ml bottle @Cimmeria, 24-03-2014.
In short: an aromatic bitter ale.
Pours quite clear with whiet head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Grassy, flowers, sweet aromas. Medium body, sverage carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is grassy, malty, some honey like flavours. Much more aromas than flavours, a bit unbalanced.

tomekk1978 (544) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Barwa: bursztynowa, klarowna. Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca, oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie minimalne. Aromat: słodowy i alkoholowy, chmiel niewyczuwalny. Smak: słodko- gorzki. Nuty owocowe z wyraźną słodowością. Trochę jakby leżakowany w beczce, drewniany. Na końcu lekko kwaskowy. Całkiem przyzwoite piwo w stylu klasycznej IPA. Aromaty i smak mniej wyraziste niż obecnie uzyskiwane z dodatkiem chmielu amerykańskiego, ale znacznie lepsze niż w większości przypadków piw tego typu warzonych obecnie w Anglii. Warte spróbowania, ale taka pojemność trudna do przyswojenia na raz.

larsniclas (5701) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Bottled from Systembolager Hazy golden/orange with a small, bubbly head. Toffee, grassy hops and tidbits in the aroma. A bit too heavy on the alcohol. Marzipan, some toffee and grassy hops in the flavour. Medium bitterness.

MSBrindbergs (412) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
Flaska 660ml från SB. Fin gyllene grumlig vätska. Doftar frisk humle och frukt. Fruktig smak med bra kropp. Sticker till som jag vill. Ganska klen eftersmak, men lämnar en bra munkänsla. Bra IPA!

Nicke80 (204) - Södertälje, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014

kapusil (628) - HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2014
0.66l bottle. Hazy orange body, off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, toast with a hint of roasted malts. Toasty malt taste with a nice floral hop flavor. Not as bitter as a usual American style IPA, the hop taste is more evident than the hop bitterness. I like this beer.
