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.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy orange amber with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly biscuit and caramel. Taste is dominated by caramel malt; hops take a back seat. Medium body with soft carbonation. Way too malty for my taste in an IPA.

Quite a lovely IPA. Decent hop characteristics offers citrusy fruitiness, interesting grape, maybe thats from English hops (?), bite pine. Quite straightforward IPA, nothing fancy, but drinkable, refreshing and well balanced. Liked it

I'm impressed about how aggressively hopped this beer is - if this is the traditional recipe then British IPAs have been under hopped for years! Great fresh, clean taste with a beautifully bitter finish. Rated by BrewTom

Gurthnar (2179) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle. Fruity hops aroma, berries, spruce, generous amount of candyish caramel. Almost clear orange colour. Stable head. Taste is at last revealing the unmistakable English hop profile, grassy, earthy, but also the pleasant fruity quality, which may just be caramel in disguise. Very good, easily drinkable. Above average carbonation. Long dry hoppy finish.

750ml bottle from Waitrose. Clean fresh aroma. V refreshing for strength. Good depth of flavour. Long-lasting fruit sweetness then bitterness after a while. Only the second beer from Meantime I've enjoyed... Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rikstar (928) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
0,33l fles bij speciaalbierpakket in leiden meegenomen. Amber, mistig met een mooie stabiele schuimkraag. Wat een heerlijk aroma, doet denken aan de renaissance van dochter van de korenaar. Dit zal er waarschijnlijk mee te maken hebben dat beide klassieke ipa’s zijn. Geur is perzik rode bessen, aardbei en ook in de smaak komen deze duidelijk naar boven, met een subtiel opbouwend bitter in de afdronk. Body is niet overdreven, dit bier moet het meer van de subtiele tonen hebben.

bottle @v Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber, off-white light head cover, curtain of lace. Really good appealing floral hop and malt aroma. Taste is caramel malt that is joined by solid floral hops in the palate. On the swallow, malt once again is dominant in a lingering finish. A solid IPA. Highly recommended.

tricksta_p (1356) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, bread, citrus, rich dried fruits, some hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium biter finish. Nice full body. Not a refreshing hopbomb, this is definitely a malty English IPA.

Nice aromas of fruits, grasses and yeast. Nice yellow colour with dense head. Tastes of green tea and apricots.
