COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

Handpump at Craft Beer Co., London Will update this rating when I find my notes. Full of fruit (mango, citrus, sweet fruit), good bitterness, hoppy, well balanced, I was very impressed.

BeardedAvenger (799) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017
Can from Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Floral citrus aroma. An hazy amber. Very frothy white head. Medium bitter with underlying sweetness. Light-medium bodied. Slick with soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. To be honest, I downed it without much thought. I.e. highly drinkable.

12/20 very drinkable pale ale, nothing spectacular and lacks the fresh zing I like, quite grapefruity

DrNosha (2347) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2017
Vom Fass im Taproom Mannheim. Saft trüb gelbes Bier, weisser Schaum. Intensives Fruchtaroma. Mango, Kräuter, Hopfen. Fruchtiger Kräuterantrunk. Die Bitternoten sind präsent, aber es wird dann etwas wässerig. Könnte mehr Tiefe brauchen.

Too fruity for me. Felt more like a cider than a beer. Hdhshdhehjdjdbfndbdhdhsjsjdjdhxhdjsjsjdjdhdhdhdjdj via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaserov (756) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017
Color naranja, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma increíble a frutas tropicales, cítricos, marihuana, resina. Sabor muy frutal (fruta de la pasión, mango, naranja, pomelo, melocotón), con buena carga de resina. Apenas hay amargor. Fácil de beber y disfrutable.

R4N5H (1193) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
33cl can at The Mash Tun, Edinburgh on 31-May-2017 - poured into a snifter. Hazy pale amber colour with a medium sized white head. Medium body and carbonation. Aroma of citrus, hops and grapefruit. Fruity and bittersweet. Refreshing, crisp tasting and a well balanced APA.

victorsampson96 (108) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017
(330 ml can) Pours a beautiful, hazy orange beer, with fine carbonation, and a fluffy white head. The aroma is hugely hoppy: grapefruit, lemon, pine needles, grass, apricot kernel, and peach. This is backed by a subtle caramel malt, fresh honey comb, mineral water, and a big bunch of medicinal herbs. This is a properly bitter pale ale. The body is a little lacking, the malt base could be stronger, and the medicinal notes become a little overwhelming. Nonetheless, this is a fine punchy beer, and delivers a dry bitter smack across the chops.
