Our inaugural Pale Ale is an exuberant mix of malted and toasted barley and an obscene amount of New World hops added at every possible stage of the brewing process. Unfiltered and bottle conditioned to preserve all the flavour.

maneliquor (3167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle from Hack & Hop. Pours vibrant orange with a small white cap on top. Nose is full of ripe orange and tangerine/mandarin. Tropical and citric. Taste is very tropical and citric as well - mandarin is so in your face. Lemon tang focus on top of the tropical juices. Touch of melon works. Very tangy and quaffable stuff with nice spritzy carbonation. Very solid

Ticks boxes I don’t even have. If it had any more tangy fruitiness it would combust. An immense APA, and a fantastic inaugural beer from Rocky Head.

Niall73 (1842) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins, Balham. Bottled 25/06/13. Pours a nice hazy orange colour with a white thinish head. Nice hoppy, tropical fruit aroma - passion fruit, pineapple, as well as tangerine, some pine, lycee. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Very tasty - just my bag - funky juicy tropical fruit, veggie earthiness, touch of caramel, dry and bitter. I will say this though, it’s a 6.5% pale ale. It will be interesting to try an ipa from them - not sure how they’d differentiate. A tasty beer.
