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.

Douberd (3192) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2015
(Meantime India Pale Ale) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulup, ABV 7.4% Deep copper orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a tall and thick off-white head. Very good retention, medium lacing on the glass. Malty aroma , fuggles hops, sugar, floral notes. Taste of grass, flowers, fruity cake, biscuit. Light bitterness. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Nice beer, interesting for sure, not what I expected.

hoplover66 (59) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 5, 2015
Color ámbar turbio con espuma consistente. Aroma maltoso y caramelo. Sabor sorprendente para una IPA, con predominio del caramelo y el lúpulo en segundo plano. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación correcta. IPA muy original y bien conseguida.

Icedwarf (724) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2015
Donker geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter met sporen van hout, kruiden en rook. Erg aparte smaak maar bijzonder goed bier.

wiedrzensky (309) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 2, 2015
On tap at "na 7. schode", Zilina. Light amber with medium white head, fair lacing. Aroma of malts, resin, caramel, spruce, buttery and bread. Taste is moderate bitter, sweet, some buttery and spruce on tongue. Medium bitter finish. I wouldn’t say it’s 7.4% alcohol, very drinkable.

Bosskie (587) - 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.
