Meantime India Pale Ale
Meantime Brewing Company
Brewed by an upstart British craft brewery that is less than a decade old, this India Pale Ale successfully bridges the gap between British and American versions of the style. British Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops imbue this cloudy, orange ale with abundant floral and citrus aroma and flavor, as well as a grassy, earthy quality. Pleasingly sweet pale malts are light on the tongue and bring out bready and fruity notes. Thereâs a green apple and pear tartness, as well as some tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and melon. Not overly bitter or resiny, this is very easy drinking for such a complex and sturdy IPA. At 7.5% ABV, it is stronger than most English versions, but the alcohol is well hidden. Meantime IPA is a great introduction to the style that American brewers have taken to extremes, but that the Brits still brew with admirable restraint.
