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.

Palme (3382) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Haandfest 2014. This is a near clear golden one. Only a small sidesticking white head. Smells nice. I get a little bit of fresh grass happyhoppiness mixed with zesty fruits. Really fresh and grassy aroma. Not bad at all. Tastes really nice. Lots of caramel sweetness but never sweet in any way. Fresh and refreshing. Light oily in he mouth and soft prickling on the bubbles. This is actually quite a nice one! Would not mind a revisit here to get a more proper rating. 24.05.2014

RichardW (1517) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Cask Kings Head Carlisle. Massive pine aroma, beautiful dark amber colour. A rich big flavoured body, with peach, mango and any number of tropical fruits in there. Slightly chewy but in a good way and a dryness in the finish. Subtle vanilla notes at the back of the throat, this was pretty spectacular, unsurprisingly.
