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!

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 12C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: overall medium hop aroma with slight citric notes and some cereal hull. slight hop oxidation. background of caramelized malt. APPEARANCE: ambar color and hazy. style average ivory head with average retention. TASTE: sweet malty flavour with faint hop flavour (citric orange-like and dry tea leafs). high bitterness that lasts beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with an almost astringent sensation. average carbonation. OVERALL: an IPA more balanced towards the malt that the hops on the aroma and flavour.

TheFoamhead (163) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2015
A true bitter-sweet symphony! A typical british IPA offering a sticky bitterness with hints of plum and cherries. Round and well balanced with a long lasting bitter finish.

PietS (61) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2015
Not the ordinary IPA, It’s rather sweet, like a red ale, but definitally has the bitterness of an IPA. Not my personal favorite, but does have something special.

Moolesen (319) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Amber/orange with a white head. Rather weak nose, but hints of hops are present. Very nice flavour with a good dose of bitterness, not of the flower/fruity type but pure bitter. Nice. Medium to long finish.

Very nice IPA with a rather extraordinary hop. I enjoyed it’s sweet ,almost tropical, fruity flavor with a very nice spice and bitter aftertaste.
