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 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.

Can. Nearly clear amber, fluffy white head. Hoppy aroma, light pine and grapefruit. Grapefruit and pine flavour, some passionfruit with smooth, slightly caramely backing.

adamnowek (1825) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016
Incredibly crisp beer. Taste starts spicy and bitter and finishes with lots of lychee and grapefruit. Carbonation is a bit lower, which is great. Hysterically drinkable.

Hopverdju (663) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2016
Van ’t vat. Troebel goudblond met witte schuimkraag. Geur: hoppig, fruitig, meloen, exotisch. Smaak: bitter, grassig, wat hars. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter, droog en lang. Met een pufke/boerke krijgt men terug een aangename hopbitterheid. Daar hou ik nu net van!
