COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled: 275ml and 500ml. Also available on draught.

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

MichaelAwesome (5110) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014

McTapps (5123) - 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 (14667) - 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.

jjsint (1162) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask @ White Hart, Crawley. Orange amber, negligible head/lacing. Scent is woody, musty and sulphurous. Bitter and sour notes dominate the taste. Grows on you, but perhaps a beer to respect but not necessarily to love.

ThirstyBird (1956) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours mahogany orange with a small off-white light tan head. The smell is mild caramel malt, cheerios. The taste is cardboard, mild malt sweetness, some complexity in the middle, fruit, caramel then bitter and dry on the backend. Light body with very mild carbonation.

Finn (4642) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Fra cask på White Hart, Crawley 22 Jan 14. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum. Beskjeden humlearoma. Gjenkjenner bryggeriets huspreg. Smaken er svakt krydret. Holder seg uforandret. Litt syrlig i avslutninga. Ikke noe typisk IPA - men bra for styrken.
