COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
Batches 0004 0011 0018 0026 0031 0040

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

MannyGoldberg (160) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
3 month old bottle at home- 8 Nov 2013. Hazy golden with a decent amount of head fluff. Nose is grassy with a bit of muted pineapple. Flavour is nicely balanced between bitter/sweet and tropical fruit. Medium body and carbo. Have had this on cask previously (unrated) but this version seems more enjoyable. Lovely refreshing beer and worth checking out.
