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.

Bottled, 500ml from Harveys Brewery Bottle Shop, Lewes, E.Sussex. Amber with white head. This certainly feels like a little journey into the past, there is a full, earthy maltiness with a mid roasted character, dusty and slightly toasty. On top of this there is a slightly oily hop note with a dry leafy taste to it, bittering and slightly resinous. A decent beer for me.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Slightly sweetish with some peaches and hops upfront. A bit of syrup in taste and aroma. Thick piwo with a fruity and light background. To recommend.

McTapps (4440) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle bought at Middle Farm Cider Center in Lewes - Firle. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium to flat body. Aroma of hops, light malt and basement. Taste of mild hops, cloves, barley, straw, mild fruits and mild herbs. Easy drinkable and quite nice, yet nothing very special regarding taste.

Erzengel (3320) - 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

Bottle from the Bitter End Offie, Bromley. Amber pour with a white head. Marmalade, citrus and caramel aroma. Citrus, malts and toffee flavour. Sweet fruit feel. Quite smooth. Not too bad.

berkshirejohn (4645) - 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.

Aurelius (4313) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Ale and apple juice aroma. Good bottle, label, clear bright orange beer with small lacing white head. Buttery, sweet, mild-to-moderate hopping, cereal flavors, a little soapy. Medium body. Thanks to Triock’s mom.

Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruits and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and fruit, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
