Inspired by our trip to the motherland and all things British, we have created a celebratory Diamond Jubilee British IPA. Based on the original recipe of one of the earliest British IPAs sent to fortify the British in the colonies in the early 1800s, this is a traditional British IPA brewed with plenty of hops and whopping alcohol of 5.5% (well whopping for the British!). It is certain to survive the long sea voyage back to Queen Liz for her to toast her Diamond Jubilee! This beer is a testament to our philosophy of brewing the best in European styles that are eminently sessionable.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. This one didnít appeal to me too much. Quite floral with mild bitterness but came across more like an amber ale. Solid but nothing great

From a 500ml bottle on 23/7/2012. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a medium head and some thick yeast floaties. Has a fairly slight aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Has a strong fruity flavour with apple and pear prominent, and finishes with a distinct, long peppery, citrus bitterness. Has more than a bit of Coopers Sparkling to it, though with a touch less sweetness and a bit more zing. Another good beer from Red Hill.

On tap at the brewery. Nicely balanced. Aromas of straw, caramel, nuts, with a hint of grass. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a big frothy head.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 Bottle, 12C. Clear glowing amber with a good coat of off-white head. Aroma is floral and fruity, with apricots, pears, bread, toffee, white pepper. Bittersweet taste, with firm peppery bitterness straight away along with toffee, kumquats and nectarines. Nice balance, but less involving mouthfeel than hoped for. Very long bitter finish. [3.6]

(differences) Aroma is a bit dank and earthy, mouthfeel more involving but carbonation seems a tad high. Feels heavier than 5.5%. Powerful bitterness. Better - shame itís my last bottle.
