COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong and well hopped for the voyage sending IPA from the Wolds to the World. Interestingly brewed with a pale Wold grown malt base, a triple hop blend and Maize for the head retention. Such triple hopped beers need hot full flavoured foods to accompany them!

Bottled. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head, which lasts for quite a bit. Aroma is citrus, some bready notes, mild maizelike notes as well as some slight herbal and grassy notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, grassy, hebral and some mild bready malts to it. Quite mellow bitterness in the beer.

ManVsBeer (5461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Golden with a small head. Has a strength but it’s certainly not as dominant as its crisp tropical fruit taste. There’s plenty of aroma here too.

Pleasant nettley hop aroma. Nice sweet malts, and decent bitterness, Fruity. One of the best gluten free beers I’ve had. Not saying 6%. Very decent bottled bitter.

(Bottle, 0.5 l - BB 01/16, at Angleterre, 20150426) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, mild herbalness and a hint of malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, hoppy and bitter. A tasty hoppy pale ale but too sweet.

Diabobale (273) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 21, 2015
Birra disequilibrata e per nulla convincente. L’aspetto è gradevole: di colore dorato carico, molto pulito, con schiuma bianca grossolana abbondante e lievemente persistente. Al naso non è ben definita: lievi note di albicocca secca sono sopraffatte presto da note amare, di nocciolo di pesca, e di alcol. Non proprio un bel sentore. Al palato ha una buona carbonazione, un corpo nella media, leggermente oleoso. Al gusto sfigura e si auto-declassa come una birra particolarmente amara, ma non amara da luppolo. E’ un amaro brutto, secco e astringente, che ricalca le note olfattive: ancora troppo nocciolo di pesca. In verità hanno esagerato con il mais. La bocca resta impallata dalla persistenza troppo prolungata di questo amaro che quasi paralizza il palato. Difficile da bere, anche in virtù del fatto in etichetta viene dichiarata come una Ipa. In realtà è qualcosa di imbevibile: nessun amaro da stile si percepisce.

Aromat: cytrynowy lekko ziołowy oraz zbożowy Wygląd: złote, klarowne, szybko znikająca piana, pojawia sie koronka. Smak: półwytrawne, karmelowe, kwaskowate akcenty cytryny, finisz z pestkową goryczką niskie nasycenie Ogółem: taki sobizm, taki sobizm

Bootle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma of lemon, earthy and flowery hops. Some bready maltiness. Medium body, low carbonation. Good balance and high drinkability.

AgentAle (992) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Aroma is sulphur, clove, lemon grass and light sweet malts. Taste is light malts that are fairly basic in complexity. Malts aswell are quite basic with your clove, honey and lemongrass. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

gegwilson (1855) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Not too much in the aroma. The flavour is moderate spice with plenty of citrus and a little aniseed. A good traditional English IPA.
