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.

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.

Cask, Ale House, Chelmsford, 22nd May 2015. White lacing. Copper bronze. Typically Yakima profile. Zest oranges, citrus fruit and pine on aroma. Taste is orange zest, orange peel and Clementines. Juicy. At the end-of-the-barrel but still pretty good!

Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Steady lacing. Lots of lacing. Aroma of blood orange, caramelised sugar, earth and grapefruit. Flavour of juicy hops - orange, peach, nettles and pine - with a tangy, honeyed finish. Very easy drinking. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A triumph.

leebotton (311) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Very blueberry fruity aroma with apricot, pures hazy amber with a very small white head. Looks like cloudy apple juice. Mouthfeel is strikingly thick and sudden bitter and bright orange like flavours soon give way to a lingering bitter graininess and dirty hay with the juice of some yellow fruit spilt unevenly upon’t. The flavour is complex and later leads to a more marmitey essence. There could almost be said to be a bit too much different stuff going on but of course this would be purely down to personal opinon and preference. To me, the flavours seem to clash a bit within itself but what is certain is that this beer is subtantial on many levels. The texture of the liquid itself is reassuringly wholesome and at 7% it doesn’t slip through your brain-veins without effect. More of a pleasant kineasthetic and psychological experience than a straight up flavour sensation but still a winner.
