This beer is certainly not for the faint hearted and most definitely packs a punch or two. Sponsored by Stewart Brewing, the recipe was created by James Hardacre, a keen and experienced home brewer, who succeeded in winning The Southernís home brew competition.
With an extensive array of six different hops, FWP is the hoppiest beer that Stewart Brewing have ever produced. Brewed with Oat Malt, Crystal Rye.

12oz can at Guilford Arms pours a murky burnt orange with some fluffy white head. Nose has coriander seeds, some straw, dried citrus, candy. Flavor comes together a little better, light pepper and spice, some candy, orange, lightly vinous, some yeast, a little papaya. Finishes spritzy. Interesting.

ianwelby (1074) - SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Clear amber beer, white head. Sour hoppy aroma. Sour, fruity hop taste. A bit too sour for my taste for an IPA. Would have helped if it was cooler.

larsga (7251) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Big white head doesnít last. Clear coppery body. Fruity funky candy aroma with plastic notes. Dryish fruity plastic taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry fruity herbal plastic aftertaste with floral spicy notes. Itís not bad, but the plastic kind of ruins it. (0.5l bottle, odd bins, Edinburgh.)

minutemat (4148) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2016
330ml can from trade with AshtonMccobb. Many thanks! Pours lightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Fresh fruity nose. Taste is bright, hoppy with a bristling bitterness. Expected more of a yeast element, the bitterness taking the reigns a fair bit but itís nice.

Fin (9465) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Can at Southern, Edinburgh, Saturday 19th March 2016 in the company of Dad and Barry. Mid amber with a film of islands once the head settled (which was quite quickly). Yeast is assertive but not too aggressive, nicely bitter, fruity with a good furry, hoppy tongue rub, like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
