The team at Uiltje pride themselves on their hop-driven beers, and this beer is the workhorse of their portfolio. Bird of Prey is the flagship IPA, so we’d best try it now that we’ve sampled the two special edition brews in our past couple of packs.
It is a really sessionable 5.8%, and is designed to be very ‘drinkable’, which to some might seem an obvious concept. But it is easier said than done, especially with the amount of good beer available to us now.
But this beer is definitely one which you could happily enjoy another of – finding enough interesting aspects to the beer without anything truly standing out as memorable or unique.
Three different malts create a lovely malt backbone supporting the generous doses of Simcoe, Chinook, Mosaic and Glacier (new one to me!) hops. Biscuity malt with a touch of caramel meld with a fruitbowl of apricot, peach, melon, grapefruit, orange citrus and a hint of pine.
