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 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.

Bottle. Pours very pale, clear, gold. Aroma is caramel and earthy hops. Taste is almost marmalade-like, old oranges. Then there’s some more fresh citrus, and a resinous character, leaving a residual bitterness and a quickly departing moderate bitterness. Nice beer - would definitely look for some more.

Hey I like this stuff... not much aroma to it but fairly drinkable stuff. Some kind of citrus taste to it. Nice aftertaste when burping. Glad to discover this beer in Vancouver Canada...

Bottle. Well, this was a nice little surprise. I really expected nothing much here, and maybe that’s why I liked this more than I thought I would. To begin with, British IPAs tend to underwhelm me after having been spoiled so much with the fine American style IPA selection we have here. And secondly, Wold Top hasn’t exactly thrilled me with their beers. But I’m happy to be wrong-- this was actually very enjoyable, with its delicate floral and citrus hop profile and perfectly balanced sweet biscuit malts. The mouthfeel was almost creamy in texture. Just so drinkable.

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!

Has a strong, hoppy aroma and the taste is hoppy with a sweet edge but finishes with a crisp, bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable.
