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 Craft Beer Co. Nice clean pour, frothy orange with modest haze. Nose is definitely quite inviting, with tons of fruit making it more than the SNPA clone one tends to expect here. Some malt and bitter, sprucey stuff going on at the beer’s core, and there’s a nice balance given how many different flavors are in this one. But at the end of the day it’s all about the buoyant fruit, and I found it nicely done and refreshing.

venom666 (747) - Elche, SPAIN - APR 30, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. West Coast aroma, grapefruity, piney, citrusy and with a good sweet malt backbone, really intense. Taste follows the aroma, citrusy, piney and grepefruity, with a good bready/biscuity background and a modrate bitterness on the aftertaste.

Sampled in a can. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Very fruity taste with lots of lychee and ripe mango. Good mouthfeel and a nice bitter finish with notes of pine and grapefruit peel. A really pleasant American-style pale ale. Highly drinkable.
