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@oe13. Golden clear. Some grainy malts, but with a beautiful fruity hoppy aroma. Exotic fruit, some citrus tangerines. Lightish body. Some honey caramel, greens. Quite a nice hoppy real ale.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
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.

Cask at Sheffield Tap. My little eyes light up whenever I see this on a bar. A quality beer from a quality brewery.

KyotoLefty (6273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Orange-gold with lace, cloudy and glowing. Big grassy hop aroma, sweet orange, hay, pine, wet grass. Nice sweet malt, honey and orange, grassy as hell, green. Light tropical fruits. Nice, but they are pushing the limit on the dry hopping.

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ Haand Festival 2013. Light orange clear body, small white head. Aroma is mild grassy citrus tones, pale malts and hints of wet grass. Taste is mild grassy notes again, melon, faint tropical fruits and hints of pale malts and lime. Medium body and carbonation. A bit boring, to be honest.
