LAtest collaboration between Raw and Steel City! A rust-coloured IPA-hopped beer - with a secret twist! Pale maris otter, wheat malt, melanoidin and just a kilo of carafa for colour. Hopped with Palisade, summit, bramling x and sorachi. Cascades and secret ingredient in the fermenter...

Cask @ The Grove, Hudds. The pour’s a deep hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma’s of tea, sugar-coated branch. Dank tropical fruit and pissy wood. Aggressive, somewhat funky hop aromas. The taste is strongly bitter. This apparently has booze-soaked raisins as the ’special ingredient’. The raisin really comes through on the taste, and gives an almost funky sourness to the finish. Very sweet tropical fruit salad. Lightly cheesy finish. Full, syrupy body. Light carbonation. Overall, I’m not a huge fan of this. I love Steel City’s creativity, but this one’s a bit all over the place.

Cask, Derby Winter Fest 13. Golden brown with a thin head. Aromas are toffee with grapefruit and pine. Grapefruit with marmalade and spiced oranges. Marmalade with lemon tea. Flavours are lemon and pineapple with woody notes. Grain with dry tea and fruity hops. Decent.

At Hucknall Beer Festival - WOW! This was bitter! Looked good, nice and clear with a decent boozy nose. Then the bitterness hits, the rum soaked raisins are quite apparent. Took some getting used to, a very sour beer.
