High Wire NZ is an all New Zealand hopped version of our west coast pale ale High Wire. Same ABV, same defined malty character but with a deliciously moreish tropical hop character derived from 4 different NZ hop varieties. Expect Passion Fruit and Mango on the nose and bright sauvignon-esque Gooesberry flavours on the palate. Its High Wire the same but different…

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2014
Tap @ the Taphouse Sydney. Hazy orange/amber head, frothy well retained white head, strong lacing. Typical stone and citrus fruit aromas synonymous with nz hops alongs with some bready notes. Similar flavours but with a decent whack of pine intertwined. Quality beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Keg at Oljenkorsi, 20140226) The beer poured deep golden and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, nettles and mildly malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, nettles, grass, herbalness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice brew with pleasantly interesting hop profile.

BlackHaddock (4270) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
24th Jan 2015: third of a pint, on-tap at Cotteridge Wines. Almost clear golden body with a white topping. Good blend of flavours with a semi-sweet tropical fruit and maltiness in the aroma. The taste a mixed bag of citrus fruits again with a good malty feel to the affair. Nice, cleansed my palate for the onslaught that followed.

imdownthepub (10770) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival ’14. Hazed gold with white head. Perfumed hops from the start, grapefruit notes, bitter and pithy, drying throughout, plenty of depth of flavour. Great stuff.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - APR 23, 2014
Tropical fruit, but a tad muted,perhaps fresher from the source. Well made obviously. Fruity and not too bitter with finishing notes of tangerine and passionfruit.

tiong (4081) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Draught @ Kitty’s, Helsinki

Pours orange with a small smooth head. Aroma of exotic fruits, crisp maltiness, caramel, berries and citrus. Taste is smooth, malty and a bit musty with notes of exotic fruits, caramel, berries and citrus. Finish is musty, slightly hoppy and caramely with some exotic fruits, grass and fruits. Okay, a bit stuffy and musty pale ale.

Travlr (13717) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2014
