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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2006
This beer has small particle of sediment floating around in an amber colored liquid and with an off-white crown. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as light notes of grass and hay. The flavor is sweet malty with a dusty hop presence and light notes of grapefruit and coriander. I makes a slight Belgian impression on me with the notes of coriander.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Amber golden and hazy with a very small head. Some caramel in the nose. Otherwise this is pure hops all the way through. I find it a bit one-dimensional and lacking complexity. 120805

Warning! Early amateur rating! Very citrus IPA - lots of bitterness. Fresh hops. Lovely!

2011 note - didn’t really understand IPAs before this beer - so thanks Meantime! Still a go to for entertaining friends!

Hazy light amber color, creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma. Medium malty body, extremely bitter, quite aromatic English hop, very long finish. Good, not exceptional.
