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.

All I can say is that I love IPA’s and indeed Meantimes is a keen one with notes of floral, grass, caramel, citrus and hops in the finish. Great!

Pedrens (101) - SPAIN - MAR 15, 2015
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.

Unikis (6) - LATVIA - FEB 12, 2015 does not count
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 (1060) - 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.

Senka (808) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2015
Different bottles from various summers. Ok IPA. A tad bit overpriced for what it is. Beautiful orange, frothy head, soapy water and a huge pile of various hops.

estoniancraft (35) - ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2015
Grassy aroma with ripe raisin sweetness and a hint of caramel roasted grain. Clear copper color with huge fluffy and lasting off white head. First taste is sweetness and a syrup like texture. Middle flavor is earthy hop bitterness and follow though is classic British hops. Well balanced and delicious. Overall a great beer.

Wonderfully balanced beer. Grapefruit notes in the finish. Teaches that heavy hopping with high ABV is probably the balance that was sought after with original IPAs. No strong-forward hop aromas/taste here. Much more subtle! I’ll be back for more. Simply delicious
