COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Cask at the Sheffield Tap; clear gold, thick dense white head; aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit; taste is very hoppy with plenty of tropical fruit: grapefruit, mango, melon; very smooth; crisp, lightly bitter finish; undeniably classic stuff, perhaps not best suited to a cold January day in the north; could well score much higher in a sun-scorched beer garden in July.

Sad24 (207) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
At pivni in York. Nice, but not as hoppy or citrusy as a good American ipa. Highly rated, I liked it, but not as good as the hype
