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.

Bygers (700) - 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 (1742) - 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.

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!

Bottle from ICA. Pours deep golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of moderate fruity hops, caramel malts. Taste is moderate bitter,citrussy and flowery hops well balanced against a nice malty body, toffee and bread. Ends with a minty and herbal bite, good balanced, typical british.

SilkTork (5180) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
500ml dark glass bottle from Morrisons. Quite a full, chewy mouthfeel. A little bit oily as well. This is a sort of full on beer - plenty of malt and plenty of hops, but the whole amounts to simply a crude beer. There’s no finesse or originality, and nothing interesting going on. There’s a crudeness about the whole thing that is rather unforgiving, and the hops are more brutal than aromatic. Not for me.
