COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ticks boxes I donít even have. If it had any more tangy fruitiness it would combust. An immense APA, and a fantastic inaugural beer from Rocky Head.

Bottle shared with dEnk. Opaque hazy orange color, medium to full sized white to off - white head. Smell and taste malts, lots of hops, fruityness, some pine and lots of bitterness. Absolutely lovely and amazing. Superb beer! Huge thanks to jmgreenuk for bringing this.

Pours cloudy and amber, light carbonation and small bubbles. Smell is light, pine, dried apples. Taste is apples, tobacco, light campfire, floral element. Lush! Not worth the 8 pounds i paid for our though!! Thanks bread St kitchen.

16/VI/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - bottled: 19/III/13 (2013-561) Thanks to Nicki and Mike for transporting the bottle!

Slightly clouded dark orange beer, big creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the bottle. Lots of very small sediment floating around in the bottle. Aroma: very fruity, citrus, bit piny, exotic fruit cocktail. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: nice fruity start, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, passion fruit, soft bitter hops. Aftertaste: little piny, nice dry hoppy ending, fruity flavours. Lovely pale ale, be it American or not.

Bottle from Selfridges, Birmingham. Amber. Smells good - like a perfumed soap bar. It doesnít really smells like a perfumed soap bar at all. A smidge of hop hardness, but otherwise excellent. Itís really bitter and I must say it is certainly hoppy. If this is an APA (and it is), then surely itís an excellent one? (it is).

My aunt used to live in Wandsworth. She would see Frank Bruno jogging in the morning and say hello. This beer is the epitome of the New World taste, big hoppy bitter bad ass mofo. Happy beer days, Iím on a roll.
