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.

spacecube (1424) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
330ml bottle, pours amber gold, small white head. Aroma is medium malty, light citrus, floral. The hop aromas are a bit lightweight. Finish is dry, long and bitter. Not bad.

Mortlach (1378) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
330ml bottle @Mad for Beer (Rome). Deep golden/light amber appearance with a big off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some diacetyle, metallic notes... damn! Flavour is malty too, bread, little hops... definitely not in a good condition! Medium body, medium carbonation. I’d like to try it again.

stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton, Manchester [261114]
Deep orange amber, hazy, big frothy white head, slight lacing
Aroma of soft citrus, some lemon, dab of grapefruit
Taste of soft zest hops, soft lemon and grapefruit, soft sweet fruity caramel malts, dab of yeast
Palate - Medium carb and body, fairly sweet, soft bitter. Finish as main flavour, more bitter yeast
Overall - Found this rather ordinary - the best of the 3 I tried - 1 was poor, the other (Dubbel) was infected and gushing and had to be thrown out

imdownthepub (11663) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Hazy amber with white head. Light malts, sweetish lead the way, slightly green and grainy, there isn’t the hop rush that the blurb would suggest, but there is a lemony, peachy character to it. Reasonable enough.

Theydon_Bois (13424) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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?!?

Bottle. Light hazy copper with a small off white head. Citrus, soapy, red berries, toasted malt, grain, hay. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Ok, but a bit bland.
