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.

KajII (780) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium copper with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that lasted for decent time before receding to a thin cap, which allowed for some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was a little sweet with a toasted biscuit malt, floral hops and a light doughy yeast and had notes of caramel, citrus (orange peel) and a mild apricot sweetness. The taste was bittersweet with a mild jolt of caramel early on and then progressed into a much bitterer taste with a mild dose of hops, citrus and had a slight alcohol presence. The flavor lasted a good long time letting the bittersweet hoppiness settle nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was in between light and medium in body with a dry oily texture and a mild carbonation. Overall a very refreshing and flavorful IPA, although as IPA’s go this one was not typical. But as it says on the bottle” Recipe from a bygone era" when hops were used as preservatives in shipping beer far distances...

Moolesen (158) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle 75cl. Dark amber woth an off white head. There is something in the aroma which I can’t identify (maybe orange?). Full rich taste of malt and hops. Different from other IPA’s which are very popular at the moment. Medium carbonized and length.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, 66cl. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a dense, light beige head. The aroma is quite malty, with citrus peel, pine cones, alcohol, cheesy hops and a touch of caramel in the aroma. Caramel, fruityness, some pine cones and cheesy hops in the flavor. Resins too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with a pleasant carbonation. Interesting this one, but rather boring in todays world. 140717

Theydon_Bois (7938) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Keg at BD on da Bush, 01/07/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a good sized off white head. Nose is earthy hops, bitter orange, bready malts, light spice. Taste comprises orange, orchard fruit notes, caramel, spice, bready malts. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so for style but I guess it fits the historical billing.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Orange with a small head. Not as hoppy as I had expected. Medium body but the lack of hops put me of a bit. Still better than a lot of other beers so why am I moaning. Perhaps my expectations where too high.
