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.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2013
660ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a clear syrupy gold with a thin white head that dissipated relatively fast. Lovely appearance in the bottle itself though, gorgeous design! Aroma is strange, with green vegetables prominent, but grass and light tropical fruits lingering in the background. Taste is worse, with a light grassy sweetness followed by an astringent bitterness, that just tastes, well, bitter. Abrupt bitter finish, quite dry and with lively carbonation. Very surprised to get a poor beer from BrewDog!

Bov (9552) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2014
from Erzbierschof - murky dark amber-orange beer with a moderate foam left; clean aroma of blood oranges and grapefruit; ful-bodied, assertive, velvety palate; light salty and fairly bitter; dry and long hoppy aftertaste of grapefruit and pine needles

caesar (5183) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Lekker Bier, batch 246 BB 14-10-14, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Soft aroma of piney and grapefruit hops, some biscuity malts, slight citrus. Not quite fresh enough to properly appreciate the aroma Im afraid. Medium bitter in taste, slight sweet caramel. Seems to be very decent stuff, like the punk IPA, but I should get a fresher bottle.

rotaman14 (80) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Ergießt sich orangen ins Glas, mit einer kleinen weißen Schaunkrone. Angenehmer Geruch von Hopfen, Orange, Grapefruit. Der Orangengeschmack fällt viel weniger intensiv aus, als das Aroma. Auch fällt der Hopfengeschmack leider viel zu schwach aus.

tlind2 (1134) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle@William K. Opaque amber color, white. Hoppy, barleywine aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor with honey. Full body, medium carbonation. Interesting.

adster (395) - HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2014
Illatában visszafogott, gyógynövényes komló, kekszes maláta aromája rajzolódik ki, majd az angolos jelleget erősítendő a jól ismert vajas, édeskés és szúrósan élénk vázon krétaporos, nemes penészes színezettel szembesülünk a kóstolása során, amit egy orvosságos komlós zárás foglal megingathatatlanul komoly keretbe. Annak ellenére, hogy az utóbbi időben számtalanszor volt alkalmam megtapasztalni a brit ale-ek karakterisztikáját, és igazság szerint nem ez az, ami a legközelebb áll a szívemhez, ha indiai változatáról esik szó, érdemeit minden további nélkül elismerem. Látszik, hogy a stílus egy kifogástalan modorú képviselőjéről van szó, amiben valóban húzódik egyfajta őserővel bíró hagyományosság.

Kita (1093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle, 0.66l, shared with Yoo. Hazy deep amber color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of resin hops, citrus, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows by refreshing fruitiness with notes of jam, a bit spicy moutheel and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Nicely balanced English IPA with well hidden alcohol level...

fourpack (68) - NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Completely flat. The aromas smell a lot like Punk IPA from Brewdog just not as intense. Leaves your tounge dry after tasting. While Punk IPA might be a little bit too much flavor this one has a little bit too litle.

jamestulloch (1406) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle, gift from Andrew. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade and caramel. Flavour of blood orange, earth and a faint alcohol burn. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A decent IPA, though not particularly drinkable for its strength.
