COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve wanted to include another IPA in the range for a while so we picked up with an idea that Stu first mentioned back in 2011, an IPA containing 100% Vienna malt. In contrast to what we wanted with Cannonball this would give the beer a bit more body and also a biscuity/toasty flavour to balance the hops against.
