Poured hazy orange, with an offwhite lacing head. Bread, caramel, nuts, honey, raisins in the sweet, fruity nose. Yet, the aroma has hops, citrus, dry, almost tarty, a completely different character. Dry finish with caramel, hints of vanilla. The 200 year old recipe does not disappoint, good one.
Draught at Roundhouse. Looks great. Very musty, yeasty hop with dry finish and a bit of sweet hard candy flavour. Lots of English hop character but dialled up to 11. HKdIPA (808) - HONG KONG - JUN 20, 2014
Tap at Roundhouse. Hazy bright orange pour. Slight spicy hop aroma with a bit of sweetness. Taste is unusual - big DIPA but with English hops instead of new world. More crisp, bitter, spicy. Less pine and tropical. Crisp finish with a bit of booziness. Better than I expected - probably not a repeat but definitely worth a try. seritomi (363) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 19, 2014
is bottle contains an India Pale Ale from a bygone era. An era of towering sailing ships, burgeoning empires and world shaping beers. This is an ale hand crafted with British malts and English hops to recreate the epic IPAs that were sent on monumental ocean voyages from England to India by sea in the 1800s.

Bottle. Pours cloudy Amber with a White head. Aroma is intensely hoppy yet somehow dull. Flavour is also swimming in hops but with a sullen earthy character that doesn’t exite. Grass and Hay. A nod to what IPA used to be. I prefer what it is now.

Keg at Brewdog. Hazy orange, pretty still, small bubbly white head. Aroma - toned down musty socks, hot water. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, smooth. Taste - malt forward, straw, chemical, light bitter finish. Niall73 (2432) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Tap at Drafthouse, Northcote Road. 06/06. Pours an orange/amber with a slightly off white head. Aroma has a light sweatiness, rye, caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Fairly sweet to start with caramel, a little orange marmalade, toasted rye bread, light pine leading to a decent woody bitter finish. Nice. tderoeck (9681) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2014

Clear red orange beer, big fluffy yellow to beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: beit weird, malty, grains, bit medicinal, sugary, almonds. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, some honey, alcohol, bit unpleasant bitterness, grains, some citrus, sugary touch. Aftertaste: cocoa powder bitterness, grassy, bit malty, grains.
Aroma: caramel malt, hay. Appearance: hazy amber, medium beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: bitters intensify, malty sweets lingering in the background. Overall: great IPA, very drinkable, not too intense yet complex. Pint at BrewDog, Shoreditch. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. This tasted a lot like stale tea, not pleasant at all, was expecting a lot more.
