COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English IPA. The hops are Target and Progress grown from the National Trusts Scotney Castle hop garden. The inspiration behind this beer, the Marquis Curzon of Kedleston, was a figure of enormous importance. While Viceroy of India he restored the Taj Mahal. On his return to England he restored Tattershall Castle in 1911 and Bodiam Castle in 1916, both of which he left to the Trust. In his memoirs he wrote about a journey on horseback in India where he dreamt of drinking a beer: At that moment I would have given a kingdom, not for champagne or hock and soda, or hot coffee but for a glass of beer. This is a true India Pale Ale brewed with lots of hops to produce a golden ale, hoppy and bitter. Gluten-free beer.

Malt: Maris Otter Pale.
Hops: Target. Progress.

Hazy dark blond. Aroma and flavour have good malt/hop balance. Lots of floral hop on this one.

JorisPPattyn (9712) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
No head left; clear metallic-cognac coloured beer. Cheesy!! Molten cheese, bit vegetal, ureum. Again cheesy, faintly sweet, finish is metallic-bitterish. Very light body; long bitter aftertaste. Not great. The crude UK hops have to give all the taste - and who cares about the gluten?

Bottle, @Half Pint Gentlemans place, 24/3/2016. Needs more hops. Pretty underwhelming. Not really an IPA more of an imperial bitter. Spice. Herbs. Lemon. Marmalade. Lack of dry-hopping. Weird hops for the style. I dont understand why they chose those.

hughhaug (13) - West Bromwich, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Goldeny amber beer with a good head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is more strongly hopped with good dryness and bitterness. Overall a nice gently hopped IPA.
