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.

Butelka 750 ml. Bursztynowy kolor lekko m?tnawe o bialej pianie. W zapachu nikla goryczka i owoce, cytrusy,chmiele. W smaku delikatne bez wiekszej goryczki. Raczej wodniste i z malym bukietem smakowym. Ciekawe IPA ale sa lepsze.

Boxereddy (354) - BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016
Helder koperkleurig bier met grote witte schuimkraag. Kruidige neus, een beetje stoffig en aards. Smaak is karamel, toffee, aardse hop. Middelgroot tot zwaar mondgevoel met ruimkoolzuur eindigend met een pittige en bittere afdronk.

artemb (345) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JAN 1, 2016
Aroma: toffee, caramel, almost no hops. Taste: sweet caramel with light to moderate bitterness. Flavour: caramel, malt, some rotten malt notes. Pleasant but they need more prominent hops for IPA.

SinH4 (1590) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2015
Copper color with big white head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, earthy, caramel, something dusty in there as well. Taste is also caramel, toffee, earthy hops, some candy, leading to a spicy and bitter finish. Medium-to-heavy mouthfeel, foamy carbonation. A solid "Old World" style IPA.

ElDesmadre (2756) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Draught, albeit a long time ago. Yeast, grassy and earthy hop notes, herbal flavour, earthy finish. /Unfortunately some notes of wet socks as well. All in all not bad but with fresh hops it wouldn’t have been better.
