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!

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle in Spainsbury’s beer-off. Shining gold without inclusions under a skim of white froth. Aroma initially canned corn and phosphorous warming into more promising English woodland and mandarin. Taste: good tangy satsuma hop rounded with lingering malt suggesting cashew. More of that slightly dank English woodland taste I can’t quite capture: Coombe Abbey? Creamy mouthfeel, dabs of heat, peach, well-poised bittersweetness, almond. Slightly saline. Not bad.

UXO (207) - CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Pours a deep gold with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and moderate patchy lacing. Nose is biscuity malt, corn, low citrus and herbal hops. Taste follows suit, with sweet adjunct malt dominating over faintly peppery hops. Thin and watery mouth feel, low carbonation, moderately long mildly spicy and low bitter finish. “Interestingly brewed with […] Maize for the head retention.” So, corn. Which is why it smells and tastes like an adjunct lager - and not very interesting at all. (And, has crappy retention, to boot.) I didn’t expect great things from a gluten-free IPA, and boy howdy, I wasn’t wrong. I don’t regret buying it to support the beer club, but it’s safe to say I’ll never have it again.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Süffiger blumiger Hopfenantrunk, wenig bitter. Im Mittelteil noch etwas hopfiger, dabei bleibt das Bier süffig, etwas herb und bis in den Nachgeschmack hinein nicht bitter. Süßlicher, hell malziger Abgang. Gut! 11/12/11/12/8/12

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Decent hop aroma, citrus, grapefruit. Also a little earthy. Dark golden colour, not much head in my pour. Taste is ok, bit of bitterness. Aftertaste takes a while to come in. Overall not bad.

Bozo_skeleton (500) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUL 29, 2014
Blonde limpide et doree,pas de carbo, collet fin et dentelle. Aromes pourraient etre un peu plus fort, fruitée et malt grillé, ointe de caramel. Attaque legere, liquide mais les saveurs caramel et cereales grillees enveloppent bien le palais. Final amer et long. Biere sans gluten

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle ordered from the brewery. Poured a clear, light golden, with a thin white head. Aroma was fairly light, some sweeter grains coming through, mixed with perfumed hops. Flavours of citrus hops, spruce and some corn. Finish was sweet grains, resin and biscuit. One of the best gluten free beers out there (probably the best brewed in the UK, that I’ve tried).
