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.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Cask at the Sheffield Tap; clear gold, thick dense white head; aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit; taste is very hoppy with plenty of tropical fruit: grapefruit, mango, melon; very smooth; crisp, lightly bitter finish; undeniably classic stuff, perhaps not best suited to a cold January day in the north; could well score much higher in a sun-scorched beer garden in July.
