Polly’s Brew Co. Fallow Plans (8.2%)

Another superb Double IPA from Polly’s, this time wrapped in a Mondrian style label.
This is the kind of beer that Polly’s seem to produce effortlessly.
It’s a big bold creamy beer, expansive and multi faceted, it begins with a solid sticky caramel cream and honey brioche malt body.
There are freshly made pancakes smothered in honey and salted butter as well, while the London Ale yeast brings a rich spicy, earthy texture and lots of over ripe fruit to the background of the beer.
The hops – Columbus, El Dorado, Mosaic and Simcoe – create great zaps of, at one moment sharp sherbet lemons and steely green leaves, and at another, gloopy sweet orange marmalade and apricot flesh.
And with the boozy peach fuzz of the finish, this is a beer to enjoy while listening to my favourite Wire song, a beer that feels like a terrain to explore to go with a song about cartography.
Super.
