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.

A quite conventional ipa. Tasty, little bitter. Balanced. A real conversation go-er. I consider this time warp from brewdog a success. Beautiful bottle. Very balanced beer. If you expect their normal extreme tastes, you might be dissapointed. But if you want a good balanced malty ipa, easy on the tongue. Go for this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

King_Alex_II (109) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2014
The beer might be a bit old, but there is little fresh hoppy bitterness. Instead a diffuse body taste dominates the beer. Not bad, but not what I expected from an IPA.

Bottle from systembolaget. Fading hops and some caramel and raisins. Pours amber with a small yellow head. Taste has caramel and some fruits. Palate is slick and oily. Overall a decent beer but really no blockbuster.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
[Bottle (660ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a murky orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruit, light candi sugar, biscuity malt, piney hops and...not sure. Flavour of biscuity malt, piney hops, fruit and a long bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Something a bit odd about this one that I can’t place but either way, it’s good.
