Brewed as a tribute to those beers shipped by the East India Company which relied on the preservative qualities of the hop to survive the arduous journeys. Pale, crystal and amber malts are used to balance in part, the intense bitterness provided by generous quantities of Fuggle and Golding hops.
A real Brewers beer, with masses of hop character on the nose, palate and after-palate. This copper coloured ale has malt and fruit notes on the palate, with an inevitable dry finish, due in the main to the addition of four ounces of dry hops per barrel before the beer leaves the brewery

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned at The Falkland Arms, Great Tew, Oxon. Reddy brown beer lacking head. It defies belief that this would be sent out as an IPA, initial hop notes of which there are few are drowned out by a malty fruity sweet body. Lacks a bitter finish as the whole thing is sweet. Good job we don’t rate as beer type as the mark would be much lower.

Cask @ Bon Accord. Dark copper colour, thin off-white head. Nose is soft malty, slightly sour with a bit of fruits. Flavour is light malted, bit of citrus, little fruityness. Slightly dry finish. Thirteen in a dozen bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plum, Soton. Fairly promising start. Herbal hops and some grassiness. This starts to decline with more maltier flavours and hint of sweetness. Hop presence quite lacking in finish. Despite that not all that bad.
