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. .?

cask at cloisters. lovely head, creamy mouth feel, hop explosion, I want to say this is what 3 Floyds zombie dust would taste like on cask. but that is probably never a comparison I’ll be able to make. still a very nice pint.

On tap at The Pit Chapel Allerton Leeds. Pours a golden straw colour. Nice laced head with smells of hoppy floral notes. Tastes of hops, grass and fruity notes such as peach, lime and apricot. Fairly decent beer!

maneliquor (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
Tap at Hack and Hop. Pours clear orange with a dense white head. Loads if lacing left. Nose is pungent citric zest and tropical fruits. Sweetness of the fruits balanced by some aggressive bitterness. Taste is zesty as all hell with loads of passionfruit and lychee fruits. Nice aggressive bitterness. Very good. Prefer this over the NZ version

LilBeerDoctor (3429) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
On tap at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, sour fruits, pale malts, citrus, earthy hops. Flavor of sweaty hops, light fruits, pale malts, wheat, citrus. Hoppy, super drinkable. However it doesn’t taste super fresh. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

b3shine (5301) - Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells of fairly bitter hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a light mouthfeel. Not bad, but forgettable.

Tmoney99 (10540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft. Poured clear golden hue with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of citrus hops and tropical fruit. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid drinkable brew.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruit - mainly pineapple, mango and passion fruit. Slight grassy aroma too. Taste is a big fruit bowl - pineapple, mango, passion fruit, oranges, lemon, kiwi and much more. Peppery hop bitterness hits after with a pale malt sweetness entering in the finish. Really drinkable and refreshing.
