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.

oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled. Orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary and some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is similar, but also has a bunch of grassy and earthy notes to balance the sweetness up. Actually a pleasantly balanced brew. In a way rather English IPA to the style.

Clear dark amber beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft but with big minerally carbonation. Fairly rich caramel malt, a little cream. Pleasantly tangy orange with a good balance of bitter pine. Pinch of salt. Quite barleywine like but then it is on the last day of its BBE.
