COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Also available on keg (filtered but not pasteurised).
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.

Bosskie (553) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Beautiful red beer, crystal clear, gentle bubbling, nice white head. Smell is sour, almost cider-like, with caramel and a slightly rotten feel. Taste is full and fresh, with a well-balanced bitterness. Dry, astringent finish. Round mouth-feel. Hint of wood. Nice. Chlorine. Metal.

Botella 75cl. Ambar-melocoton.espuma blanca cremosa, persistente buena formación. Aroma suave a lúpulo, malta, matices dulces, bizcocho de naranja. En boca cremosa carbonatacion baja, en boca dominante la dulzura y los lúpulos en un segundo nivel, aunque aparecen mas al final. Recuerda mas a una amber ale americana.

Aroma- can notice dry-hop, but not like fresh IPA. After few minutes could smell just malt. Appearance- Cloudy with small white head. Taste- Malty with bitterness about 25IBU. Plate- Nice pale ale, but not IPA.

trapped (1211) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 11, 2015
Draught @ Taproom no307. Hazy orange with small foamy whitish head, doughy aroma, sweetish taste with a bitter taste kicking in immediately, low carbonation, medium finish with hops aftertaste. Hops not as dominating as I expected.
