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.

Cask. Huddersfield Oktoberfest 2015. Chestnut brown with a thin tan head. Nose is burnt tangerine, kumquat, a little lychee. Taste is surprisingly light, giving some more fresh kumquat and lychee. There’s a over ripeness to the orange taste, but not unpleasant. Very very nice. Belies its ABV.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
On keg at Bundobust. Nice stuff. Looks cloudy amber/blond. Not as "fruity" and more dry and grassy than Cannonball. Quite dank though, sprucey, and pinappley. Dig it.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2015
Third, draught at Bundobust in Leeds. Cloudy amber coloured body. Stable filmy layer at the surface. Malt-fruity aroma. Blended taste profile of grapefruit and brown malts backed by resinous bitterness towards the ending. Well bodied. Soft on the swallow. Pleasant (08.07.2015).

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Draft @ Tilquin English beer festival, 2015. Ambrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme est très houblonné, entré sur le résineux, résiduel malté en retrait et de suite un coté Vienna qui restitue ce côté Munich légèrement toasté et grillé.. Palais reste centré sur cette note de forêt de pin, malt caramel, pâle-Vienna sur une pointe grillée, pure résineux.
