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. .?

Juha (31) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Bright golden orange colour. Aroma is piney resin, quite tight. Taste is pine resin too and a little grapefruit (but not much). Very tight and mouth-puckeringly bitter but a nice balance with maltyness. Punches above its 5.5% abv.

Draught at Birratrovo, Como
Hazy light amber color with small head. Powerful aroma, fruity in the front, a bit more earthy and grassy later. Very dry mouthfeel, some caramel flavor, resiny hops, grassy, no fruitiness, no sugars in the final.
Extreme, rough, but good.

On tap @ Homo Sibaris, served in English Pint. Pours translucent orange-golden with medium white frothy head. Orange peel, sweet malts and hints of tropical fruits on the nose. The flavour is quite citrusy, yeasty and lightly caramel-ish. Dry palate, some spicy notes. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Average APA.
