COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Believe it or not, we had never brewed a pale ale when we started. But once our experimental Alpha Series was launched around 6 months in, we went about constructing the Pale of our dreams. We tweaked malts and hops continuously and eventually came to release a brew known as Gamma Ray. This name came from our Creative Director Nick Dwyer, Who at that time was working on the floor at Dukes Brew and Que. Nick brought illustrations in every week. It was undeniable, the guy was a force and his imagery resonated deep. We all loved spacemen and lasers again, simple. So we named the experimental brew Gamma Ray and Nick drew the design - drawing heavily from mars attacks and warren ellis graphic novels. Our baby was born. From its release Gamma was perfection for us and joined the Beaver core range. The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!

On tap @The Local Pub. A delicious, tasty, hoppy pale ale! Has a fruity malty piney hoppy aroma. Big pine kick in the taste , well carbonated, nice sweetish bitterness in the finish, gets better as it warms.

Smells grainy with a touch of fruit. Looks troubled pale artistic. Nice balance between a touch of citrus confit, resine, and grape seed persistence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorites from London, this beer has it all from cool cans to fresh hoppyness. Deep golden copper maltyness, well covered by the hoppy aromas and flavors. A wee bit heavy for my session beers but I could do it on a long day!

On Tap @ Sur-Mesure, Nantes. Yellow body, small white head. Grassy smell. The taste is definitely the best part : it hs everything youd expect from an IPA, except it is oly slightly bitter, very sweet. One of the best APA to begin with, imo.
