The world of beer seems to be going through a whirlwind romance with hops right now. Just as phenolic, peaty whisky is in huge demand (a style distillers had to hide in blends in the 70s) hop-bombs are becoming commonplace in the craft beer community. We love hops too although we don’t quite take our bitterness to levels that others might. We’ve added a healthy portion of American bittering and aroma hops to our Pale and balanced them beautifully with a delicate sweetness that our Belgian yeast provides. We hope that you find it familiar enough to adopt it as a new favourite and different enough to make it memorable.

Theydon_Bois (8727) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle on the IOW Jolly Day outward train tasting, thanks to Mads, 24/08/14. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white swirl and edgework. Nose is light orchard fruit, melon, spice, bready. Taste comprises orchard apple, light diacetyl strains, bread dough, pale maltings. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. So so affair - trumped up GB, where are the hops to justify APA?!?

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to SlackerMads during the IoW Jolly. It pours clear golden-amber with a tiny white head. The nose is toasty, grainy, mild floral, juicy citrus, waxy and a touch of spice. The taste is crisp, lightly bitter, some sweetness, grainy, citrus peel, pepper and light resin with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty easy going stuff.

real_ale_ity (4) - - APR 15, 2014 does not count
Belgian funk erupts from the bottle neck like a loaf of bread being pumped through a scaffolding pipe. Deep copper ripples lap and coat the glass beneath a buoyant and emulsified head. Fits into the mouth well. Lacks the tedious fascination with Factory Records you would expect from a beer of this style brewed in Manchester, although the swirly label does allude to Peter Saville obliquely. Would like to try drinking 6 or 7 on Monday morning. NO_ESCAPE_FROM_REAL_ALE_ITY
