DESCRIPTION: An infinitely satisfying pale ale, brewed with Citra hops from the USA for a punchy hop presence. Since its introduction in 2011, Infinity has rapidly become one of our best selling beers and is perfect for lovers of modern style ‘hop forward’ beers.
FACT: Infinity is named after the ‘Infinite Monkey Theorem’, which states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually type the complete works of Shakespeare!

500ml bottle from Ales By Mail

BBE 08/2013 - Pours golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, grapefruit and grass. Taste is hoppy and mildly caramely with notes of tangy fruits, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Finish is bitter and slightly malty with some tangy notes. Okay, quite basic but tasty pale ale.

Juuicy and tropical with a hint of natural sweetness. Fresh flavours. Sharp citrus in the nose. a bit of a bitter sting joins it in the mouth. A good depth of flavour. Lovely. Score 3.8

Cask at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2012. Straw with white head; the aroma is full of American hops; the body is quite thin, but the hops come through rather well, providing citrus and pine resin flavours; and a drying finish. More an APA than a Golden Ale in my opinion.

Gravity dispense at the twelfth Twickenham Beer Festival - 18/10/12. Hazy mid golden with a moderately sized frothy white head. Great hoppy nose with some sweet grapefruit, apricot jam and citrus tones. Caramel malt taste, orange, light grapefruit and hops. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. Great little hoppy number!

Cask at the Craft. Almost clear gold beer. Little white head. Light semi dry palate, a little fine carbonation. Mild pale malt with a tiny bit of cream supports good tangy orange hops - blood orange and a litytle tangerine. Finishes semi dry with mild bitter linger. Not had better than this from Blue Monkey. Great beer on a muggy evening.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Grapefruit, gooseberries, pineapple and mango all feature in the inviting aroma. Hoppy and fairly bitter taste with tangy grapefruit and tropical pineapple, mango and passion fruit all detected. Really nice.
