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 Southern’s 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.

1/2 pint, southern, Edinburgh. Pours medium amber and completely transparent with a miniscule white head subsiding average. Scent is medium herbal! Maybe sage or Rosemary. Taste is more substantial of the same. Finish is clean and clear. Great

Bottle at home. Pours a reddy amber with a slightly off white head. Lightly malty bread aroma, slight sweet cakeyness to it. Medium to light body, medium carbonation.Toast, a little orange, wood, lemon, grapefruit, grass... Really like the dryness, lovely dry bitter aftertaste. Nice.

Allistar (2) - - JUL 25, 2015 does not count
From Beer52, Belgian IPA which pours deep state with a huge off white head and lots of lacing. A blend of new world hops and fruity/phenolic yeast esters on the nose. An assertive bitterness as well as copious amounts of flavours from the hops.

A bottle from beers 52. Nice colour and aroma, tastes more like an American ale rather than a Belgium one. Not bad,

33cl bottle from beer52.com. An attractive, post-modernist label on the bottle is worth an extra point here. A clearish amber pour with a tight white head; the aroma is almost eyewatering with the resin from the hops; in the mouth however it’s smooth and fairly easy drinking, despite the dryness from the load of hops, and there’s an interesting blend of fruity and woody flavours; surprisingly at the end there’s a lingering toasty, oaty taste from the malts, and a touch of yeast to give it a Belgian feel. Excellent.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cad’s 10th Anniversary Tasting - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to the Scotland crew for giving me this one. Pours unclear, rich gold with a foamy, white head. The nose holds pale bread, citrus fruits and crackers. Light to medium sweet flavor with dried pine bitterness, hay, some lemon rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more crackers, white bread and citrus rind. Just fine overall.

chinchill (3127) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2015
From a bottle in Edinburgh. (new and improved version says the brewery rep.) Clear copper body topped by a good head. Mild-moderate input from the Belgian yeast. Well matched hopping. Good complexity with multiple fruit notes over a bready base and a light spiciness. Very good balance and mouthfeel.
