Pacific Northwest meets Pacific Southeast as the best of American and New Zealand hops meld together with just enough malt backbone to allow them to sing. A riot of mango and passion-fruit on the nose but balanced enough to drink by the bucketful. Dive in and grab another bottle but don’t get the bends.

Ingredients:
Grains: Pale, Vienna, Munich, Cara-Pils
Hops: Citra, Pacific Gem

Wow. West coast IPA meets NZ (still getting to know them) hops. I love it. Will definitely search this one out again. Citrus, grapefruit and bitter passion fruit in the hops. Balance from the malt. Decent head. Goes down very easily,

Towey1989 (1748) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, passion fruit, mango, slight pine, a little caramel and subtle herbal hops. Taste of passion fruit, mango, orange, some gooseberry, slight resin, a little caramel and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A lingering but soft, fruity, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Great tropical fruit flavours in this balanced by subtle malt and resinous and herbal hops. Well made as per from Weird Beard. The first and the best I’ve had on cask by these.

Golden body, very murky if you pour everything from the bottle. Mango and lychee hops, nice fermentation going on here. Light doughy style malts, yummy, nice and dry enough. (33cl bottle from QV.ID)
