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.

Hazy pale brown-yellow beer. Acidic aroma with notes of malt, citrus and alcohol. Gooseberry flavour with dry growing bitterness.

Dorwart (2452) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Light wispy head with loads of floaters. Light carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma with lemon, citrus and a bit of flowers. Medium amber orange in color. Crisp and clean palate. Light malts with more hops. Light to medium bodied. Clean hoppy finish with a light alcohol presence. Pretty decent but nothing special.

thornecb (4879) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Pours bright amber into a shaker. Fluffy off-white micro head subsides in chunks. Fruity apple and pear aromas. Sharp and well-balanced with a lasting bitter hop finish.

KnutAlbert (6393) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2007
A nice pop as I pull the champagne cork, lovely smell of hops. Pours a cloudy amber with a rather large head. A splendid beer, full of fresh citus fruit, lime with a hint of apricot. Soft and smooth. The label says is has some wheat malt, which explains the head. Fuggles and Goldings hops give more fruitiness than bitterness, but it is bitter enough to give a refreshing twist in the tail. A little warming is the only sign of the alcohol. I like the "unfiltered and not primed with new yeast" ideology, too! My only objection iws the weight of the bottle, this is a bit much to drag around!

RobBestwick (677) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2006
750ml bottle, highly hopped, spicy aroma, copper hue with an authentic frothy head, very spicy, lots of hops evident, a long bitter finish with a lemon twist, an excellent IPA.

bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Beautiful clean aroma of citrusy hop. Beautiful hazy apricot color with a finely bubbled white head. Starts with a hint of pepper submerged in citrus (but not grapefruit) hop, malt follows, and the smooth experience finishes with a decent, but respectable bitterness. There’s something different in the hop at the start and the hop at the finish. Something a bit Belgianish, like yeast? Or not. This is not a NW US hophead dream; it’s just really, really delicious.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Not as hoppy as I usually expect from an IPA. In fact, this one was rather sweet. It has a nice hop balance and an interestingly buttery mouth feel. The aftertaste of the hops, however, does linger for a long time.
