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.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2007
750 ml bottle. Illuminated light reddish amber colour. A slight haze. Tall creamy head that clings to the glass. Beautiful to look at. Intense lemon aroma with some distant apricots. Soft texture and smooth flavours. Gentle, but rich malts and lots of hops. The hops are clearly there but surprisingly mellow at the front. More bitter towards the end. The aftertaste leaves a somewhat grassy and dry sensation. Nice balanced IPA.

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle. This beer poured to a creamy head which lasted only a short while. The color was a hazy amber with tiny particles. Aroma was of grass and lemon and a bit of grape and apple. Taste was fairly bitter right off, and in the long finish. Texture was mostly watery and fizzy and ended up chalky and astringent. Not great, but not horrible either.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Pours amber with a light head. Pleasant lacing. Fair fruity, hop aroma. Moderate mouth feel. Lightly bitter and fruity hop flavor with a mildly sweet malt undertone. Rather citrusy.

Beerdedone (3058) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2007
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours cloudy orange with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, citrus, alcohol, and bitter. One of the better IPA beers ive had.

PhillyBeer2112 (2678) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Very very pleasant. Nice grassy, herbal and hay hop aroma, seemed mostly Goldings but I’m not so great at discerning these English hops. Big golden orange color with a huge rocky stiff head. Easy palate, creamy mouthfeel, like fruitiness to otherwise bready malts, like an ale should have, and a solid whack of bitterness in the finish, but not strong. Could almost be a session ale despite the strength - definitely the whole bomber disappeared in 2 breaths! There was a slight tart astringency that began to detract some, especially as it warmed, which is unfortunate because it was otherwise pretty damned spot on.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours an opague cloudy orange with a two finger thick fluffy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and caramel malts. The flavor is sweet, citrus, orange peel, bitter hops, smooth, and a nice alcohol punch. Good body, Great brew.

jimcook (14) - Cathedral City, California, USA - FEB 5, 2007
A little thin on the head, and in appearance in general. Flavors are well-balanced, with a surprising (though fairly faint) creaminess on the palate. A very drinkable beer.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2007
Bottle. Weak grassy hop aroma. Perhaps a little plastic? Clear copper colour. Full-flavoured, sweet and hoppy.

Keg British... Keg head; orange coloured beer. Specific nose of hops, I’d even wager USA hops, even if they’re not, and "wet dog" aroma. Grapefruit and other bitterness(es). The liveliness of a cask has been replaced by little fizzyness, but nothing exaggerated. Actually, this is better than some of the poorer cask IPA’s. Light to medium bodied. It’s especially the finish & aftertaste that betray the kegging: not much going on anymore, if anything. Quite OK for a British IPA. Couldn’t vie for one moment with the better USA ones, though.
