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.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle from Tuckerís Maltings, Newton Abbot, Devon.
At just on cool and into a pint. Simply faultless to look at. A sunny shade of orange and just whispily hazy with very fine, intermittent and sluggish carbonation. Rocky and thick, satiny pillow of white atop holds on well and leaves a thick weave of lace. Bright hops on the nose; pine, camphor, eucalypt, dusty herbs under layers of peach and apricot with inklings of toasted grain and sweet Anzac biscuits. So juicy is the fruit esters in the mouth. The body lighter than expected with spritzy carbonation giving it a racy mouthfeel. Citrus fruit like bitter/sweet valencia dominates over lowly, pasty malt flavours. A hint of salt sharpness amidst a very herbal, spicy and piney back end that peaks and drops off with a surprisingly subdued bitterness. The alcohol shows, giving a light warmth to it but is in check. Very well balanced ale. Would have loved to have seen more depth of malt, but itís otherwise another great beer from Teignworthy with respect to this old Maltster. (50cL, BBE 05/13)

Bottle. Golden with white foam. Aromas are floral with apricot and grapefruit. Yeasty with quite gentle spices. Lightly woody but light overall. Flavours are sweet grapefruit with lots of spritzy yeast. some apple. Has the strength (almost) of an ipa but not the character. Still OK.

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 (9079) - 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.

JonMoore (2060) - 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.
