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 Duke’s 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!

Bajada de calidad importante. Esta cerveza la he bebido hasta la saciedad en lata, y ahora han optimizado costes de producción bajando mucho la calidad. En fin, hay otras muchas IPAs por el mundo ;)

Marko (6385) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 10, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Tap at Fakin. Murky amber, white head. Citric and soft maltiness. Mild citric taste, light, soft maltiness, great body, but I expected a stronger taste. Hm. Solid, drinkable beer.

hrabren (2044) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 10, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 On tap at Fakin Craft Bar, Zagreb. Shared with lovely Anja and Marko. Murky golden to orange, small off-white head. Lightly hoppy, aroma is fruity, light citrus, light spices, leaves, hints of tropical 🍹. Biscuit malts underneath. On the sweet side, but good balance. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, light aromatic finish.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Malts : Best Pale, Caragold, Caramalt Yeast Houblons : Columbus, Bravo, Amarillo, Citra, Calypso, Mosaic Apa avec belle mousse, bien parfumée/houblonnée, peu amère, légère. Très "buvable" (au sens qu'elle passe vraiment bien), elle est descendue bien vite ce qui est un signe qui ne trompe pas! Fort bonne!
