COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned, Occasional;
Wherryman’s Way IPA is brewed in the American pale ale style, which pays homage to the original strong but light-in-colour English ales that made the journey from Burton-on-Trent to Bombay, with a combination of locally grown Maris Otter pale malt and caramel malt for a deep golden colour with a refreshing dry flavour. Hopped with a combination of Target and Centennial hops and then dry-hopped in the cask with more Centennial and Simcoe hops, the beer is full of a funky citrus hop character like many of its cousins from across the pond.

gunnar (5104) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from Ales by Mail, labelled as double W IPA. Pours hazy dark amber with a small creamy white head.Nice flowery hops aroma, upon a good malty body. Taste is light sweet malty, sugars, before a more bitter, dry piney hops ends the show. Nice enough.

mile (2854) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel with some floral - tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - light bread and light tropical fruitiness, some piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel - light bread and light fruitiness, sharp piney - some citrus hoppyness, light alco-hol. IPA with caramel and light bread. Finish has too much alcohol considering the body - also bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy.

lusikka (5947) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a golden copper colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of floral hops, grains, mandarin orange and hay. Flavour of caramel malts, floral hops, resin, strong tangy mandarin orange, grass and some tartness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rather weird tartness here, although the bitterness is rather nice.

66 cl bottle @ olio as ”Humpty Dumpty W Double IPA”, BBE 02/2014
Aroma is somewhat fruity with gooseberry bush and hints of vanilla. Flavour has glue, honey, some fruity notes. Harsh finish with gooseberry bush, some nettles and grass. Also some acidic white wine notes. Not very double IPA and not very good.
