    Looks fancy, interesting.

    It then says

    "... And will continue to mature until you enjoy it"

    I am probably well out (usually am on these things) but aren't hop aromas mostly volitile and these steps aren't going to help?

    Anyone tried one yet?

    Don't know about the beer, but I associate Horninglow St with Bass, not Marstons.

    It is, apparently an English IPA style.

    "No:1 Horninglow Street, the first in the series, is a 7.4% India Pale Ale, paying homage to the IPA beer style that Burton made its own from the 1820s onwards. Burton is known as the home of Pale Ale, benefitting from its gypsum-rich water, which gives definition and edge to hoppy beers.
    No:1 Horninglow Street IPA has been brewed with low-colour pale ale malts, and then been both ‘late’ and ‘dry’ hopped with four hop varieties: Goldings, Sovereign and Ernest from the UK, and Cascade from the USA."

    Undoubtedly a good drink!

    But it does pander to a number of misconceptions that people have of "English IPAs" (historical IPAs, not the 20th century pap) like "strong" (7.4%!): They were actually relatively weak at nearer 6 - 6.5% ABV. They also had hopping levels that would make a "BrewDogger" wince. I never try to make historically inspired IPAs because I haven't the patience to wait for that level of hopping to moderate; I'll attempt domestic Pale Ales from that era at around 70-80IBUs (still higher than Marsden's no doubt, but I'm not trying to please a badly informed public).

    Interesting choice of hops: "Sovereign" is relatively new but I'd like to try that hop, but "Ernest" is much older and I struggled to find much about it (it was a failed attempt to find something to replace Fuggles). The original (historical) hops have of course vanished, either to have become "just another" Golding or else suffered extinction.

    Anyway, you don't want to believe the twaddle I spout so I dug out this article by Ron Pattinson (177IBUs ashock1): https://makezine.com/projects/make-40/brew-a-vintage-ipa/
