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.

Dry and drinkable with enough hop bitterness to make it interesting. Not too complex, but tastes good for that second it hits the palate.

Gyllen gul, medium skum som forsvinner raskt. Bra med kullsyre. Smak og aroma av humle og litt sitrus, men... dette er ikke hva jeg forbinder med en IPA. Tam, smakløs og lite spennende. Litt bitter og ok ettersmak, ellers skuffende.

17.01.2014. 0,5l Bottle. Spesialbutikken Vaaland, Bryne. Golden yellow colour with white head. Bitter hoppy aroma. Soft malty with aroma dominated by mild grassy floral hops. Fresh and easy drinkable IPA. Aftertaste is soft bitter with a soft touch of lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’m very glad I read the description prior to opening this one, because as an ESB, this makes sense. Good balance and strong malt backbone without ignoring the spicy hop character. Amazing finish that keeps you wanting another gulp.

500 ml brown bottle, abv 4.6%, [email protected] Isrenna Tromsø. Moderate white head, sprangled lacings, amber body, hoppy scents with much spruce and rich roasted malts to the nose too. Broad taste; hops, roasted malts, spruce, resin, caramel, bitter, well balanced overall. Dry and fresh ending, where taste continues, plus hints of apricot and almond and lemon-peel, and the final is also well balanced.

Bottle. Golden and clear. Hoppy with a lingering bitterness .Plenty of body considering its fairly low strength. Worth trying.

Panzerfaust (877) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 9, 2013
Bottled from Jumbo, Santiago. Pours a hazy amber color with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy with plenty of english character, lemongrass, pine and cedar. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice astringent finish that leaves some zest aftertaste behind. Light bodied, maybe too much for an IPA but pleasant and refreshing. A well made, quality brew but maybe a little bit overexpensive.

500 ml flaske. Fruktig aroma. Ikke veldig bitter, lett sødme. Snill IPA. (OFKS, 01.11.13)

ERB92 (810) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Caramel and some hops in the aroma. Golden colour with a head that disappears quite quickly. Medium sweet with a bitterness that are really balanced. light body with a slight oily texture. average carbonation. Bitter finish. Over all a OK beer, a bit thin maybe but refreshing.

shoestring (435) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Liiked it a lot. Bitter and oily in mouth. Nice one. Never had bad thwaites beer. See what some mean about bit light for IPA but liked it for wht it was
