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

KyotoLefty (6145) - 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 (3854) - 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.

Niall73 (1342) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Keg at CBC Brixton. Pours cloudy gold colour with thin white head. Lovely aroma - passion fruit, mango, pineapple with some lemony citrus. Medium to light body. It's light and fresh with mild grapefruit bitterness alongside a little of the tropical fruits. It's dry with a bit of tonic in there too. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2055) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has sweet caramelly malt, light one, and very soapy fruity hops. Some flat grains. Bit floury but smooth palate. Some yeastiness in flavour which is not nice. Pretty huge amount of grapefruits.
