COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the amazing hoppy beers being brewed by American craft brewers this beer is heavily hopped, packing it with tropical fruit flavours and aromas. Pineapple, passion fruit & grapefruit are the dominant features of this beautiful amber ale, that has a big strong malt backbone to balance out all the hops.

A bottle in the Rake - thanks to Mario (a really great barman) for pointing this one out. Very hazy amber beer. Tiny white head. Creamy malt base. Good rich hops. Nice citrus hop - rich orange and lemon sherbet with a trace of grapefruit. Neutral finish. Spritzy bitter hop aftertaste. A very decent UK IPA - always welcome! Nice job!

3.9
Leighton (22508) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours rich, orange-gold with a dense, white cream head. Strong and dynamic hop aroma, with wet, dank grass, resiny pine, and citrus rind, along with subtle caramel notes. Lightly sweet with toasty malts and honey, then very bitter with more pine, dirty earth, and grass. Medium bodied with fine, ultra-smooth carbonation. Finishes with just light sweetness and dank, sticky and earthy hops that linger forever. Really, the bitterness coats the throat. Really good with some nice thrust from the relatively high ABV. Well done Bristol Beer Factory, well done.
