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.

Ananas voert boventoon in aroma. Smaak is naast wat zelfde ananas kiwi en licht peperig, wat in nasmaak doorgaat. Mooi licht oranje met plakkraagje.

cervmagpt (408) - PORTUGAL - JUN 25, 2015
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.

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.
