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.

Lele (526) - Padova, ITALY - APR 19, 2017
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!

Can from the brewery. What a smashing american pale ale. Looks divine, smells of citrus and hops and spring. Taste is so smooth. This beer is not hugely complex but thats what makes it great in my mind, could imagine smashing back many cans of this.

Davros IX (127) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Two cans drunk alongside moules and a thai curry in a restuarant in Porthleven. A lovely hazy appearance alongside strong hops and a gentle carbonation that resulted in a good mouthfeel. It was perfect with the spicy food and there is not much more to say.
