COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Very Nice Brew. Not as heavy as expected... obiously for the name. Aroma of grass, herbs and citrus hops. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Taste is medium bitter with a medium body, average carbonation and bitter finish. It’s a very nice APA, perfect for a session.

Smooth flavour with light hops. Only problem is that if you put it in a jar, and then open that jar. That shit will go EVERYWHERE and get you mad sticky. 3/4.

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

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
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.
