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. .?

TimE (4347) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 10, 2014
Light amber color. Big fresh fruity nose with tons of pineapples and tropical fruit. The mouth superbly well balanced, no flawless, hops everywhere, great malt back bone. Very clean, quaffable. Nice bitter finish without going over the top. So so smooth and great.

Soft, subdued nose. Pineapple, toffee malt, apple and lychee. Smooth but fullish body. A bit dulled but lots of toffee and tropical fruit. Solid.

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 (3479) - 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

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)
