From Meantime Brewing in Greenwich, England, this is a true English bitter beer – it is not a U.S. IPA. This is bitter beer all the way and the first time I have ever tasted a bottled version that is as good as the draught version at pubs in London. It has that sweet and sour, bitter, hopped up, better when it’s warmer flavor that is just incredible – especially when you can’t get that taste outside of England (that I have seen). It’s amazing they were able to put this stuff in the bottle and send it to the U.S. and yet keep the flavor. While I still prefer my San Diego IPA’s, this is becoming a favorite. Just a great example of a bitter beer.

Nicely hazed dark golden hay color with a hugely gaining cap of perfect white foam. It softens and smooths out to a creamy sustained skim and lots of lacing patched about the glass. Lots of activity streaming up within its body of gold.

Aroma is dry and husky of pale and cereal malts, dried floral hops add a bit of wood and leafyness and a nudge of grasses. Very light sweetness of dulled fruityness and butter underneath.

Taste is a well balanced treat of sweet bready and buttered malts touched with a light fruityness and a grand display of well handled dry hoppyness thats slightly woodyish, leafy, herbal, and grassy. Has lots of low key subtlity to it that really stands out as what a solid English style IPA should be. Its bitterness is puffy and starkly set, but in a subdued grassy herbal chalkyness mixing with dry woodishness. The malts underneath have a well distributed portion of dull fruity sweetness of orange, peach, pear, and apple tenderized in with some nice cereal and bread grain length. Very slight hints to medicial, mineral-like notes flash about.

Body is nearly perfect. Very rounded and fairly full for an English IPA. Great balance of sweet and dry with a subtlity in the flavors thats incredibly intiguing and really stands out as the body and carbonation never gets in the way like other over yeasty English styled IPA's that don;t sit well with me.

This is quite possibly one the better, if not the best English IPA's I've encountered in quite sometime. Super sessionable and a well balanced subtle tasty treat! Damn yummy stuff!
