COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

imdownthepub (11476) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at The Norwich Tap House, Norwich. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to be a particularly hoppy beer, dry and full on the palate. There is a citric, then tropical fruit character, drying bitterness, very fresh tasting. Enjoyable beer.
