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!

Bright clear pale gold beer with a small white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Clean pale malt, a little dry. Hops are light but very pleasing in their lime - lemon character. There is a nice touch of piney sweetness as well. Finishes semi dry and medium bitter. Sank this in no time!

500ml bottle. Golden amber colour, foamy white head leaving some lacing and aroma of caramel, spice, citrus, hop resin. Taste is malt caramel, sweetish, with some tangy orange & grapefruit citrus and hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

50 cl bottle, 6%. Golden color, clear, standard white head. Well hopped indeed, crisp and refreshing, vaguely grainy, citrusy, UK bitter style. Dry and light bodied, not excessively bitter, average carbonation, easy to drink. Can feel an hint of maize. Lack of fruity notes as other IPAs do.

Bottled 04/09/13. A golden beer with an off-white pool of head. A full flavoured hoppy beer. Good citrus flavours and a nice body. Good malts. Tasty and well constructed and balanced. Lovely length of flavour. Really very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 I don’t like IPA style for strong hop notes, but this is not the worst hoppy beer i ever drunk... But anyway i don’t like this beer, golden color, hop aroma, not excessive bitter in mouth but hoppy and herbal aftertaste

Medium offwhite head. Clear yellow body. Floral orangey mint aroma with strawy notes. Dry-sweet resiny orange zest and grapes taste with strawy dusty notes. Mid-bodied. MIld, soft mouthfeel. Dryish salty orange zest aftertaste with spicy herbal grape notes. Nice, drinkable, different. (0.5l bottle, from Co-op, Whitby.)

Pours pale, bright golden amber, with a brief, small white head. Mild hay and lemon gras aroma. Much more flavour on the palate: classic English IPA. Balanced hops and malt, with more grassiness and a bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Aug 2013. Poured into a UK pint sleeve on 1 Jul 2013 at home. Orange to light amber body, almost clear: on top a full and deep uneven carpet of white bubbles. Mixed bag of flavours and smells: the nose was both fruity and spicy with a malty backbone. The taste also both fruity and spicy, again with malts hanging around, however the hops also added a new dimension, a semi-dry bitterness that pushed the malts into the background even further than in the aromas. Some yeasty notes in the taste also. Good body depth and the alcohol level suited the brew. All in all a good beer.
