COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled only; Pasteurised.
NOTE: The cask version has a seperate listing.
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.

triskaideka (135) - Killarney, IRELAND - JAN 7, 2013
bottle @ home. I think I’m a budding "hop-head", so I liked this beer. Pours clear, amber. Nothing exceptional but a good IPA - plenty of hop character.

ciaranc (847) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 18, 2012
Clear golden pour with a big foamy white head, medium lasting with nice lacing. Nice English hop bitterness, straw, grain and some grass in the aroma. Quite grassy and dry in the flavour, again with a good dose of bitterness from the hops. No perceptible sweetness. Medium bodied, carbonation is somewhere between soft and slightly lively, settles as you drink it. Rising bitterness in the finish, with tends toward the astringent.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
0.5 L bottle, brought home from Meny Oslo City. Crystal clear, golden brown colored body. Coarse two-finger blond head. Mild, inviting aroma. Perfume, tangerines and hint of black currant. Less than medium full. Slick mouthfeel. Soft malt flavor. Light toasted and biscuity, with pepper tones. Ok bitterness, earthy and fruity, and a bit rawer than tha aroma indicate. Short, light watered down ending. Overall, pretty good for a pasteurized bitter.

Bygers (741) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle 0,5l. Copper clear colour. Medium head. Aroma of hops. Taste of hops, a hint of peach and yeast. Oily texture. Not a very exciting beer, pretty boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SarkyNorthener (1849) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Amber colour medium head. Hop aroma. Taste is grassy and hoppy medium bitterness. A nice balance, if you like a middle of the road beer. Just taken some more sups of this and it improves, the taste is actually better than my initial thoughts. A good hoppy beer.

Holmen1 (2376) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Flaske fra ICA: Nydelig gylden farge med stort skum som varer. Tydelig aroma med humler (4 ulike flg etiketten) og karamellmalt. Deilig, velbalansert smak. En super butikk-ipa. Denne skal jeg ha felere av!
