Inspired by the amazing hoppy beers being brewed by American craft brewers this beer is heavily hopped, packing it with tropical fruit flavours and aromas. Pineapple, passion fruit & grapefruit are the dominant features of this beautiful amber ale, that has a big strong malt backbone to balance out all the hops.

500ml bottle. Can’t remember where from. Pours hazy gold. Lots of tongue-tingling grapefruit pith and zesty hops. Not mind-blowingly hoppy thus making it rather delicious and quaffable.

Gravity at Tucker’s Maltings Festival Bronze medal in Premium Strong Beers Hazy but in a good way. Good lasting white head. Very fruity, American hops aroma. Dry, west coast style. Bitterness slightly lingering but still pleasant. Good AIPA.

As a colonialist I will say that this is very good! Has the bitter and hoppy notes one expects. Where it differs from the usual American breed is a perhaps more substantial malt background. On the resiny side as well. Quite good.
