Very pale Maris Otter Malt and traditional English Goldings hops replicate the original pale bitter. Bitterness is robust but well rounded with a spicy peppery finish and heady alcohol esters.

Bombay 106, named for a British light infantry regiment, is a healthy 7% abv and hopped with masses of Goldings according to the advertising blurb. The Goldings are very much the star of the show here, big, hefty dollops of spice and a citrus note like Seville oranges. Backed with a firm malty body which means the hops don’t run away with it all. The finish is long and dry with just a hint of sherbet in there for fun.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A cloudy pale amber pour with a billowing white head; muted fruity aroma; rich, buttery, fruity taste; with a dry, satisfying finish. A good blend between the modern American IPA style, and the traditional British.

Bottle from the Whistle Stop in Saltburn. Amber with huge white head. this is a lively little number! Subtle citrus aroma. A really nice bitter IPA with some biscuit and caramel flavour before a good long bitter finish. A lovely traditional IPA.

Taste is grassy dry, spicy, and bitter. Full bodied, hop oily palate. Big, long, bitter finish. Big, but somehow subtle.

Bottled 500ml @Beer Hunters
Hazy orange color, good white head. Grapefruity-fruity hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grapefruity, some bubblegummy notes (wheat?). Ok, a good example of new wave English IPA.
