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.

fraternie (935) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Balanced between its caramel malt and floral citrus flavors, leaning heavier on the malt, showing a bit of medicinal note as it lingers with moderate hops. Fine up front but doesn’t finish as well, although maybe I’m just used to the US west coast hop profiles, this is decidedly bitter and astringent as it lingers.

JoTheO (24) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle 330ml. Amber haze with a medium thickness white head. Initial aroma is malty but the hops soon arrive in style. Taste has more malty notes with some sweetness ending with more dominating hops. No citrus or fruit (as given by the hops included) but plenty of caramelised sugar. Not really how modern IPAs are defined, but a very nice beer.

borre_m (779) - NORWAY - SEP 19, 2015
Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is hoppy, malts balancing. Not sure on the hop aroma, a little weird. Not sure if i like this, hoppy, a little soapy.

ShivanDragon (2479) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
Meantime india pale ale bij de Jumbo vandaan. Schenkt helder koper/gouden met zeer beperkte witte kraag. Aroma van zoete weeïge mout, caramel, als ik het etiket niet gelezen zou hebben zou ik zeggen dat het een (pale) ale was. Smaak is vrij dun, veel héél veel caramel, mout. Matig bitter, redelijk zoet, ik kan toch niet echt zeggen dat ik onder de indruk ben van dit bier, veel te beperkt en ééntonig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyhallmanti (36) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear orange beer with an off-white head that vanishes quite quickly and leaves lacing. Tastes bitter yet sweet, fruity and a bit of honey.

markschiedon (399) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma peaches, nuts but overall fruity. The unclear orange beer has a medium off-white head. The taste is very bitter, roast malt, some smoke, hop. High carbonated.
