Meantime are Britain’s only brewers of authentic India Pale Ale. Small batch production allows us to apply the attention to detail and care we require to produce an authentic IPA especially for you. Pound upon pound of Fuggles & Goldings hops are needed to enable us to achieve the dry hopping rates necessary to recreate this great beer style. Enjoy with hot foods and spicy friends, or vice versa.

Huge floral hit on the nose. Taste of floral spicey hops dominates, quite sweet, low bitternes and a little malt. As flowery as it gets.

Ipa so british avec houblons du Kent Fuggles et Goldings. Orge et blé pour un niveau abv intéressant de 7,4 %. Mon exemplaire était à 2 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambre roux abricoté, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines par milliers, en multiples fontaines, superbe. Mousse beige clair, soyeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt cara, grillé, bois de fût, vin blanc, poire cuite, pointe de cumin. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame malt/houblon, amertume un peu imprécise. Arrière-bouche avec un côté légèrement fumé !! 2ème avec une belle texture maltée, petit côté vineux. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume donnant des notes boisées par moments. 3ème à l’ensemble avec un côté légèrement portorisé !! Arrière-bouche belle, mais hors sujet. Longueur qui continue sur la même ligne. Jambes serrées, groupées, assez grasses. Levure douce, un rien épicée, ligne correcte. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il est sans grande action sur l’équilibre. Finale sans envergure. CONCLUSION : une ipa anglaise hors sujet !! C’est un comble … Son côté boisé et vineux enlève les touches d’amertume qui devaient venir des beaux houblons employés ...

Bottled 33cl. Pours a very clear yellow beer, low white head. Nose is very low, mainly sugar / bubble gum. Taste is mainly alcohol. A very uninteresting product.

Excelente exemplo de uma IPA original. Equilibrada, com aroma e amargor característicos dos lúpulos ingleses.

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Malty backbone, typical English IPA, kind of sweet, not too bitter. Fair enough.

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
A cloudy, orange colored beer with a firm, compact, also slightly orange colored layer of foam. The aroma is somewhat sour, and contains traces of citrus fruits. It tastes quite bitter, sour, and resembles some licorice. Quite complex. Is aftertaste is like licorice, and moves on into a bitterness with the touch of nuts. Een troebel, oranje bier met een stevige, compacte, ook lichtoranje gekleurde schuimlaag. Het aroma is zuur met de hint van citrusvruchten. De smaak is bitter, zuur, en heeft de tinten van drop. Vrij complex dus. De nasmaak is dorpachtig, en laat een bitterheid achter met de hint van noten.

Hafif meyvemsi tadları barındırıyor ama çok baskın değil. Şerbetçi otu kendini hissettiriyor ve damakta uzun süre kalıyor. 7,4 lük alkol oranı sizi ürkütmesin alkolü neredeyse hiç hissetmiyorsunuz . Köpük çok güzel ve kalıcı.

Drank with Rik 21-3-2016 at my place (thanks for sharing!). Mediocre IPA, not that many taste, a bit boring.

Cobreada, turva. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma de caramelo com notas cítricas. Sabor amargo equilibrado, com notas de caramelo, toranja e café. Retrogosto amargo com final herbáceo e levemente alcoólico.
