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!

A strong fruity smell of oranges and grapefruit. The small white head is milky, the body is orange. A light fruity taste with a rather bitter finish. The body is medium strong, very dry with a normal carbonation.

330ml can. Aroma is clean and dry but it’s the taste that’s important. Big orange notes with a little peach and some floral stuff in the background. Ace.

Can. Amber beer with a good head. The aroma is reasonably hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with a maltyness and a strong roastedness. Overall a nice American pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.

Hazy/turbid yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Super strong aroma and flavour for 5.4 abv.
