3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog, alongside the normal Hopwired. Less hazy, similar orange amber colour, still, small foamy white head endures longer than on the normal version. Aroma is musty caramel sweetness with some banana and peach. Body is medium, some spritzy carbonation. Taste is lighter than the normal version, toned down caramel sweetness, soft strawberry, finishes with crisp citrus.

Draught keg at Brewdog Camden. Aromas of over-ripe fruit salad - nectarine, melon and strawberry - similar in flavour, with a lingering but not sticky/sweet finish. Was expecting a wet-hop beer to be more grassy but this was just jam-packed with fruity flavours.
