Yet more Brewing brilliance from Wylam, this IPA follows a pattern that I’m getting used to from this brewery, and that’s the balance of the beer.
This beer isn’t brilliant because it packs in loads of juicy fruity hops, fresh and heavy with lime zest and lemon curd, gooseberry and mango, and it isn’t brilliant because of the lovely understated but wholeheartedly “there” malting that provides a super shortcake and honey, pancake and caramel base.
It’s not brilliant because the aroma is a blast of freshly squished citrus pulp and peach flesh or because the finish is clean and crisp, bitter and sharp.
No, Blow Out IPA is brilliant because of how all of that stuff sits so effortlessly alongside everything else that you barely notice it all.
You just take a swig and know that it’s really great.
