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.

Bottle from Asda Carlisle, Deep golden in colour, thin, almost non-existent, white head. Nose is dominated by sweet malt with some hints of citrus fruit away in the background. Malt is to the fore again flavourwise, the bitter hops are there in the background again, and are quite harsh, verging on unpleasant! Not the best I’ve tried from Thwaites, and not one I’d buy again!

Bottle. Light copper. Quite mellow nose with very english light floral, herby, hops in a light caramelly pale malty setting. Dry lightish, but with some chewyness. Sort of butterscotchy malts really. And citrus hops. Not that bad after all. It is a bit murky, and isn’t the intensest of drinks, but I’m finding enjoyment in it.

Ikke noe ipa, men grei litt syrlig smak. Klar gyllen farge. Absolutt ikke bitter.! Kort ettersmak.

Vighals (1322) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2014
Gulbrun klar med offwhite skum. Karamell og maltlukt. Ikke mye som minner om det jeg liker med en god IPA. Heller ikke mye IPA bitterhet i denne. Hvorfor står det IPA på denne? Ok det er en bitter.. Ja da så..

TMalek (6) - HUNGARY - JUL 24, 2014 does not count
Bottled. Clear amber color with proper head. Long staying fruitness at the end, maybe peach. Great, worth a try (or more).
