India Pale Ale is brewed to a lower original gravity and this beer undergoes a similar process of maturation to the Blue Label. The result is a lighter, more mellow ale with a distinctive hoppy character.

A fragrant hop character, derived from a blend of Fuggle and Progress hops, gives this award winning ale a full but delicate bitterness.

Contains: Barley

worldbeertaste (1778) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Clear light orange with a frothy lacy disappearing white head. Smells terrible of toasted malt and stale hops. Taste sweet at first than moves to bland and finishes with a sharp stale Berry finish. Bland

275ml botte, thanks Pierre T. BB 03/2016. Léger ambré, col fin blanc. Arôme est malté nettement plus présent, le bouquet fleuri d’un houblonné noble anglais perce en rétro nasal. Ce dernier reste cependant un peu faiblard. Palais est assez faible en terme de complexité, on retrouve un malté très basique anglais, ce dernier apporte une fine note caramel. L’effervescence, minime, contribue aussi à une alimentation faible en bouche au niveau du caractère attendu de cette IPA. Reste cependant correcte pour une IPA anglaise traditionnelle où l’on retrouve un profil de base de Fuggle.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, toasty grain, brown bread, stone fruit and earth. The taste is smooth, soft, mellow, toasty grain, earth, grassy and a touch of citrus rind with a short, dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Not bad really, just not very much to it. You could chug a lot for sure.

Bottle from the Harvey’s online shop. Appearance - golden amber with a thin head. Nose - orange and bran. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied, thin in texture, decent finish. Overall - solid but unexciting.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Barley and hops, bit citrus, decent bitterness. Nice and easily drinkable beer without big moments.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle from the Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes. The beer pours out in a quite clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of bitter hops and barley. Taste of medium bitter hops, bread, straw, barley and nuts. Refreshing, yet nothing special. Lacks body and taste.

Travlr (17662) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12/13/2008 Mail order in Barton Mills, Suffolk, UK. A bit thin, not much aroma, no head. Not enough hoppy bitterness for a pale ale. Not impressed.
