COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Has also been seen on cask as Teignworthy Indian Pale Ale.

A British version of the American IPA style.
In order to replicate the East India Pale Ales of the past we have produced a limited kilning of East India Malt. High quality low nitrogen barley has been traditionally floor malted as with the original East India Malts. Kilning temperature specifications and final malt colour have been closely adhered to.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Poured from a room temperature 500ml bottle into a traditional pint glass. Appearance: Cloudy golden honey in colour, pouring with sizable creamy white head, with good retention. No visible carbonation at all. Aroma: Fruity citrus, with a subtle hoppiness. Slightly acidic yeasty smell. Taste: Sweet at first, almost sugary. Quickly replaced by dry, sharp fruity citric flavours, which are incredibly refreshing and crisp. The finish is bitter and hoppy. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Flat, yet crisp and clean. Drinkability: Not a usual IPA, provides a much cleaner, crisper taste than most. Itís a fairly unusual taste but it really pays off. If you can get your hands on this beer, you wonít regret it.

Quack-Duck (8048) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2007
bottle, bought at Tuckerís Maltings in summer 2006. Golden yellow, slightly hazy, impressive head, which is very persistent. Fantastic aroma of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, full of flavours of grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime. Solid malty base with a rather dry and hoppy finish. Long-lasting aftertaste. Fantastic brew.

Bottle, picked up at Tuckers Maltings, Newton Abbott 14-11-06. This was super, Loz detected apricot on the aroma which had clearly passed me by, I noticed more citrusy notes in this light amber coloured beer, the hoppiness was a bit of a revalation for me as all too often I think we are a bit reserved in thie arena, wonderfully fresh juicy and flavoursome beer that really had a great kick to it, I really liked this and it was one of my best finds of the week.

London Gathering Nov 05: Nice hoppy pine and citrus nose. Good malt character to back it up too. Nice.

JonMoore (1886) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottle. Light amber colour with a slim white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is also hoppy and fruity. Mouthfeel is a little disappointing, some what oily, could do with being a bit cleaner and crisper. Iím not sure about the late alcohol kick either. But despite this, I still like it; we need more of the these stronger, hoppier English IPAs. Re-rate, bottle from same batch, but much better. Mouthfeel crisp and clean, nice hoppy and fruit taste, good malt background as well. Well balanced. Very good.

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2005
Bottle at London gathering, November 2005, bought from Tuckers Maltings beer shop. Well, here it is - a British made IPA thatís really difficult to place anywhere else. Pale bronze colour Highly hopped on the nose and on the palate. It has some US-style resinous notes. But it manages to retain some British reserve and lacks the vitality (some might say excess) that its US counterparts exhibit. Uses Goldings and Bramling Cross hops, which might have something to do with it, as might the British malts. I, for one, think that British brewers should be rather more adventurous and this is a worthy effort, even if not an unqualified suvccess. Nonetheless, I like it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Bottle. Dry and slightly hoppy, quite subtle hop characters for an IPA. Slightly stale mouthfeel, with a touch of alcohol showing in the finish. A little dissapointing.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2005
Bottle @ London Gatherying, Nov 05. Leafy herby hops which I found a bit overpowering which is odd as I normally prefer hoppier beers.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. An amber coloured beer. The aroma is hoppy but a little oily. The taste is a little peppery hop. Tasty and clean and well brewed, but not enough hoppiness really.
