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."

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

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.

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 (2472) - 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 (8391) - 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.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at Chrisí. Strange little thing, malty and juicy with a powerful punch of hops. But it wasnít very balanced, I canít say Iím a fan.

harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 2005. Copper coloour with thin beige head. Some sediment in suspension. IPA hop aroma (similar to US IPA) Quite good hops, then a bit of caramel. Extremely drinkable for me even given its strength

SilkTork (5109) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
Nov, 2005. Kilburn Palace Bottle Fest. Sweet. Yeasty. Pleasant hop oil. A decent English attempt at the modern IPA which originated in the USA.

Emil (6067) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2005
Bottle. Light cloudy orange colour with a small off-white head. Sweet light caramel malty, hay aroma and a light sweet harsh hoppy taste. Medium body and a dry harsh finish.
