COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Also available bottle conditioned.
Brewed specially for a chap visiting from Birmingham who claimed there are no good hoppy beers brewed in Bristol and "the local brewers use the same recycled hops teabag in their brews". So, here we have a Transpacific Pale Ale, brewed without teabags but instead large amounts of American and New Zealand hops.
Due to the level of interest generated, has become an occasional brew rather than the one-off originally intended.
