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.

Tap@Schouskjelleren. Light orange, nice creamy white head, good lacing. Not a ton of aroma, some spicy hops, some malt sweetness, fruity. Not a lot of IPA traits to be found, at least not as pronounced as one is used to. Is more of a pale ale in bitterness and overall flavourfulness. I would like this more on the bitter side. It’s almost like this was old when it was served, it just lacked punch in all departments, and came off boring.

Excelente exemplo de uma IPA original. Equilibrada, com aroma e amargor característicos dos lúpulos ingleses.

Bottle at tderoeck's place, thanks! Malty backbone, typical English IPA, kind of sweet, not too bitter. Fair enough.

A cloudy, orange colored beer with a firm, compact, also slightly orange colored layer of foam. The aroma is somewhat sour, and contains traces of citrus fruits. It tastes quite bitter, sour, and resembles some licorice. Quite complex. Is aftertaste is like licorice, and moves on into a bitterness with the touch of nuts. Een troebel, oranje bier met een stevige, compacte, ook lichtoranje gekleurde schuimlaag. Het aroma is zuur met de hint van citrusvruchten. De smaak is bitter, zuur, en heeft de tinten van drop. Vrij complex dus. De nasmaak is dorpachtig, en laat een bitterheid achter met de hint van noten.

Hafif meyvemsi tadları barındırıyor ama çok baskın değil. Şerbetçi otu kendini hissettiriyor ve damakta uzun süre kalıyor. 7,4 lük alkol oranı sizi ürkütmesin alkolü neredeyse hiç hissetmiyorsunuz . Köpük çok güzel ve kalıcı.

Drank with Rik 21-3-2016 at my place (thanks for sharing!). Mediocre IPA, not that many taste, a bit boring.

vidmidia (244) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2016
Cobreada, turva. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma de caramelo com notas cítricas. Sabor amargo equilibrado, com notas de caramelo, toranja e café. Retrogosto amargo com final herbáceo e levemente alcoólico.

Bijl (63) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
Mooie ambergele kleur, wazig en een snel verdwijnende fijne schuimkraag. Aroma is iets fruitig en moutig. Beetje zuur. Niet veel hoparoma voor een IPA. Smaak begint zoet...wat karamel, gist en wat grondtonen. Iets snoepachtigs komt ook naar voren. Subtiele bitter... Niet heel hoppig. Vooral zoet in de nasmaak...klein nabittertje. Body is medium... Koolzuur met mate. Alcohol redelijk op de achtergrond. Al met al een redelijk goed biertje. Geen uitgesproken IPA.

Bier smaakt zeker naar behoren. Weinig schuim, mooie kleur en zachte smaak. Goede keuze.

Pours clear amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, a bit fruity, malty. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter, a bit resinous. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Bottle from waitrose. Clear amberish golden ale. Aroma of dry hops and piney. Taste is dry and bitter. Fizzy, good body though. Ok.
