COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isn’t there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just don’t call it "too bookoo!"

Poured into my New Belgium Chalice from a 12 oz can. Hazy light gold with a good sized slightly off white head, nice lacing as it went down. Nice nose, mostly citrus, little caramel. Taste seemed to balance out as it warmed up, really nicely. Nice bittersweet finish, overall not a run of the mill IPA, it stands out.

BlackHaddock (4998) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bomber, brought back from California to drink at home in Shropshire: shared with my son on 1st August 2015. Light amber to golden body, slight haze on the final pour: on top a thin but full off-white head. Tropical fruits in the aroma with Grapefruit coming through strongest and into the taste. Really pleasant flavourings, citrus notes mostly and semi-bitter in the finish. Liked it.
