Believe it or not, we had never brewed a pale ale when we started. But once our experimental Alpha Series was launched around 6 months in, we went about constructing the Pale of our dreams. We tweaked malts and hops continuously and eventually came to release a brew known as Gamma Ray. This name came from our Creative Director Nick Dwyer, Who at that time was working on the floor at Duke’s Brew and Que. Nick brought illustrations in every week. It was undeniable, the guy was a force and his imagery resonated deep. We all loved spacemen and lasers – again, simple. So we named the experimental brew Gamma Ray and Nick drew the design - drawing heavily from “mars attacks” and warren ellis graphic novels. Our baby was born. From its release Gamma was perfection for us and joined the Beaver core range. The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!

Fresca, sabrosa, aromática y fácil de beber. Todo lo que se le puede pedir a una APA, en una de los mejores ejemplos que he catado en este estilo.

Aroma of pine, pineapple, floral and dark bread. Taste: bread, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, grassy. Lime and lemon get a peek at the back, along with more grapefruit, more dark yeasty bread and a slight metallic-ness. Smooth and at times creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Beavertown make great beer. This is hoppy to the max, floral, citrusy, just great. Nice bitter follow through. Easy drinking but tasty to the bottom of the pint. Magic.

Beer with distinctive hoppy fruity citrus taste with a bitter but balanced after taste. If you like hoppy beers this is one to try. It is a good looking beer also, light brown and cloudy with thin foam.

Craft Beer Fest VIenna 2015 - A clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is intense on fresh apricot and tropical notes. Aroma is on the same fruit notes, very bitter but low on the body side, pleasant APA
