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!

Very Nice Brew. Not as heavy as expected... obiously for the name. Aroma of grass, herbs and citrus hops. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Taste is medium bitter with a medium body, average carbonation and bitter finish. Its a very nice APA, perfect for a session.

Several 330ml Canes. Im gonna buy more canes and do a more articulate rate , but this is a nice drop of piss. A humongous white creamy head that resembles the shape format and texture image of a Muffin...with a vibrant banana coloured liquid base . Cumbersome nose of syrupy fruits ..fleshy mango, tangerine , tinned fruit salad , citrus emphasis - like a classy air fresher , but as I mentioned , this nose is a tad boxed in . This beer drinks fucken fine ... dry , syrupy and coherent sweet malt and tropical fruit unity . will r8 .

330 ml can. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. The aroma is medium hoppy, floral, lightly citrusy, some pine along with some malt. Medium body with a very soft texture and a low carbonation. Light to medium sweetness and a medium bitterness. The taste is medium hoppy, oranges, peach, grapefruit, pine and medium malty. Bitter finish. Overall very balanced.
