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!

Bottle. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are biscuit and caramel with tinned pineapple juice and lemon. Grapefruit with woody notes and hints of caramel. Trace seawater with soft spices. Flavours are sweet mixed tropical fruit with dry, woody notes and a peppery finish. Decent.

Clear golden colour. Floral aroma. Quite a herbal taste. There’s almost some funky Brett yeast in there too. Complex.

Bottle from Shambles Tavern in York. Golden with a decent head and carbonation about right. Toast and lemon curd on nose and taste. Nice balanced and tasty ale.

Butelka 0,5l Kolor złoty, klarowny, piana średnia drobnopęcherzykowa dośc szybko opada. Delikatne cytrusy, goryczka w smaku, piwo wytrawne, takie sobie.

Idiosynkrasie (5559) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grassy hoppy aroma, a touch of hay, hints of lemon biscuit. Taste is moderately sweet, biscuity malty, hoppy overtones with a lemon note, hints of lemon biscuit, a touch of balm, moderate hop bitterness. Pronounced, IPA-suitable maltiness.

Zapach, ledwie się unosi. Początkowo czuć lekkie owoce, ale szybko znikają i pozostaje mocna goryczka, taka bardziej grapefruitowa niż chmielowa. Ziemista na finiszu. W porównaniu do naszych, polskich craftów, wodniste.

Piwo złote, klarowne. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, jednak szybko opada do obrączki. Lepi szkło. W zapachu delikatne cytrusy i niestety wyraźny aceton. W smaku wyraźna goryczka. Lekko zalegająca. Wysycenie średnie. Wytrawne, by nie powiedzieć wodniste.

Aroma weak, sweet, bit fruity, some alcohol too. Nice golden color, clean. Foam very short, weak lacing. Taste strong, a bit of bananas, some spices (coriander), nice, pretty strong bitterness. Some alcohol again... Nothing special, decent beer tho.

SkillsFactory (369) - ITALY - AUG 23, 2015
Dorata limpida, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di pompelmo, pepe, maltata ed erbacea, note zuccherine. Al palato citrica, scorza d'arancia, frumento, coda amara che ricorda il pompelmo misto ad un retrogusto erbaceo. Corpo leggero, non molto carbonata, beverina.
