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.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Draught@HBF2014. Hazy orange colour, small white foamy head. Aroma is tropical fruits, zest, some sweet malt and mild nuttyness. Flavour is quite biscuity with strong tropical fruit notes. Very pleasantly balanced. The 100 % vienna does give it a strange malty body, but in a way that suits the beer very well too.
