Refreshing amber ale, brewed with four hop varieties for superb taste and aroma.
When Daniel Thwaites was embarking on his brewing career, the ’Indus’ would have been voyaging to the East Indies = trading Lancashire cotton for exotic Eastern delights. Our Indus Pale Ale celebrates ales of that period with a refreshing brew enriched with abundant hops for flavour that stays fresh and crisp to the finish.

abemorsten (3290) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - APR 27, 2014
Clear deep golden body with a small off-white head. Dried tangerine peel, marmelade and autumn leaves on the nose. Mouth complies with the nose then quickly adds a sweet and malty middle that temporarily dominate. The aromas then come back to end on a bitter tongue. Medium bodied and smooth to drink.

TBone (14610) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle 500ml (S-Market, Pori)
Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma is grassy and a bit cardboardish. Medium-bodied. Fruity hoppyness but also some buttery notes. Berryish. Lingering bitterness. Quite robust for being English type IPA of this ABV but somewhat restless.

BitchPls (660) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Red copper, lots of bubbles, big foamy head. Fruity on the nose. Caramel, some off balanced vegetable notes, fairly good grassy bitterness with a grape fruity bite. Body is watery to medium. Once the bitterness kicks in after a few sips the off balanced notes disappear and this becomes quite good actually.The bitterness hides them very well. Very enjoyable.
