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!

(From the keg) Hazy deep golden beer, with fine vigorous carbonation, and a large rocky white head. This beer has a pleasant fruity aroma: mango, grapefruit, peaches and apricot kernel, backed with notes of straw and pine. The hops are balanced by a subtle maltiness, with hints of biscuit and honey. This leads to a clean and bittersweet finish. The body is smooth, light and slick. By every measure, this is a solid APA - the aromas are mellow and balanced, and the bitterness doesnt overpower the palate, but complements the sweetness of the malt. Very sessionable, and very tasty.

jasonbenali (191) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Pours golden yellow with a clean white head, lively carbonation and good lacing. Aroma is juicy and hoppy with apricot, mango, pineapple, orange and light caramel malts. Taste has a little sweetness and a nice bitter finish. A go to beer, particularly on draft, even if this particular one was slightly under par.

MarcinG (777) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Puszka 330ml. Lekko metnawy pomaranczowy kolor. Piana biala,obfita o drobnych pecherzach,ladnie utrzymuje sie w szkle. Co za aromat! Mocne uderzenie owocow z mango ananasem marakuja i pomaraczami na czele podparte solidnymi cytrusami i sosnowymi szyszkami w tle. Wcsmaku wiecej pomaranczy niz owocow tropikalnych. Cytrusy i sosna niezle wspolgraja zapewniajac ciekawa goryczke. Wszystko swietnie wywarzone i bardzo bardzo pijalne w majowym sloncu.

APA veramente buona. Soliti sentori dello stile. Colpisce per la pulizia, lequilibrio e lamaro che presente, ma che scompare subito, pulendo benissimo la bocca. Ben fatta!

Drank 28-3 @Majid the night before going to Struise. Balanced, soft IPA with quite a neutral taste. Not very hoppy.
