3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
According the BA, this one ranks #2 in style class behind my favorite English IPA: FFF’s "Blackheart":
Ap: Oops! I may have poured this tool aggressively. No matter. It is pretty much a bright, cloudy orange color, with a huge head. Generous carbonation.
Ar: It has kind of a rotten orange and medicinal smell that I’m not digging.
T: Hop-wise, this is VERY restrained. Fairly sweet, with a nice malt backbone, and not much bitterness at all. This is one of the more port-like IPAs I’ve tasted in a while. Is this unfiltered?
P: Solid, with a mild alcohol snip that is hidden well and blends into the sugar. I love the champagne-like foaminess on top of the brew.
O: 7.5% ABV isn’t too bad, especially for a small batch beer. Tasty stuff!

330 ml bottle. Semidark hazy orange colour with unstable head off. Aroma of malts, something sweet. Taste of malts, it acts like beer from concentrate. Caramel sweetness. Not good.

quite light aromas when poured, but tastes nice in mouth. Overall a nice IPA with possibly too much bitterness to balance light spices.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good IPA in my view a balanced beer like a real IPA needs to be.
Fruity hops with a nice full malt body and a soft bitterness balanced aftertaste.

Comprada en Cervezorama, botella de 75 cl. Detrás de una marca que nos gusta, y un bote con una estupenda presencia se encuentra una IPA que no lo es tanto. Carente de aroma y con sabor de lúpulo que no hemos reconocido desde luego americano no. Con buena espuma y gran apariencia apenas amarga y con un alcohol muy mal disimulado. Regular.

This is a great English pale ale, not an IPA. No aroma, no over the top hops. Nothing. Low score, cool bottle.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Light cloudy amber pour, frothy with loads of lace. This is quite different to the Meantime IPA that most people will have bought in Sainsbury's! Malty inviting aroma. Lovely smooth hoppy bitterness, with no sharpness that you might expect from the very different dry hopped IPA's. Malty flavour which reminds me a little of Ben And Jerries cookie dough ice cream. This is my second beer before deciding to review and it's really growing on me. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like this! Quite a special beer. Thanks Meantime!
