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.

SinH4 (2443) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2015
Copper color with big white head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, earthy, caramel, something dusty in there as well. Taste is also caramel, toffee, earthy hops, some candy, leading to a spicy and bitter finish. Medium-to-heavy mouthfeel, foamy carbonation. A solid "Old World" style IPA.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Draught, albeit a long time ago. Yeast, grassy and earthy hop notes, herbal flavour, earthy finish. /Unfortunately some notes of wet socks as well. All in all not bad but with fresh hops it wouldn’t have been better.

Brodzislaw (203) - POLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Kolor to zamglony/matowy bursztyn. Piana ecru obficie wydostała się po przelaniu do szkła, by z sykiem opaść. Drobne pęcherzyki oblepiły ściany pokala by z czasem opaść niemal do zera. Aromat średnio-intensywny, pomiędzy wytrawnym a słodkim, w nutach chmieli brytyjskich: zioło, herbata, trochę owoców. Całość przypomina musujące wino. Jest też trochę alkoholu (w sumie jest go 7,4%). W smaku jest podobnie, słody w nucie cista/biszkoptu minimalnie karmel i estry owocowe. Przykrywa je ziołowo-herbaciana goryczka, wytrawna. Smak jest wytrawny i podobnie jak smak ociera się o winny. Wyczuwalny jest też z czasem alkohol. Zaskakujący smak, momentami kojarzący się z belgijskimi piwami do tego ze spora dawką chmielowej goryczki.

TheKernOwl (165) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
- Nose: High-register, woody, slightly spice-y; - Body: Seville marmelade hints; otherwise not too much taste; - Finish: somewhat herbal/medicine. A very English IPA, which initially almost comes across like a golden ale.
