COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
A strong, old style India Pale Ale reminiscent of the ales exported across the globe by British breweries during the early 19th Century. It has a full hop aroma, golden body and tight head. The bitterness lingers on the palate giving a dry finish.

Erzengel (2396) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2013
Rating from 2010: Dunkelgoldene Farbe, weißer Schaum. Der Geruch ist herb aromatisch. Im Antrunk ist das Bier süßlich-herb, schön aromatisch. Zum Hauptteil wird die ausgeprägte Hopfenherbe deutlicher, die leichte Süße harmoniert sehr gut mit dem hopfenaromatisch-herben Grundton des Bieres. Der Nachgeschmack ist langanhaltend, frisch-herb und malzig-süßlich zugleich, schon fast dickflüssig. --> schönes aromatisch-herbes Exemplar eines Imperial IPAs, auch wenn es sich selber nur East India Ale nennt. Für meinen Geschmack einen Tick weniger malzsüßlich sein könnte. Sehr zu empfehlen!! --> 12,12,11,11,12,12 - 11,70

berkshirejohn (4395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2011
50cl bottle picked up in Hastings. Golden amber with a thin white head; typical Harvey’s aroma of dusty hops and earthy malts; an interesting combination of flavours - rich buttery malts, but also tart cider apples, resolve to give a resinous hoppy finish. Unfortunately we don’t know if this is the real IPA flavour, but it’s pretty good nonetheless.
