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. .?

tap from Market Place Alehouse, Doncaster. Cloudy pale golden with nice white foam ring. Aroma is citrusy and peach orchestra, feels grapefruits, oranges and tangerines. Taste is freshly, citrusy, bittery, fruity and caramel. Punk IPA mouthfeel - says my girlfriend. Nice one.

Bue en canette mtallique. Blonde claire, mousse gnreuse, nez plutt herbac. Vraiment lgre en bouche, facile boire car peu amre et dote dune carbo pas trop violente. Cest pas mal fruit mais tout de mme en douceur, a passe tout seul. Ah... lamertume semble se rveiller en fin de canette... Bref, "cest chouette !" comme le dirait si bien le hiboux.

Hopmaestro (1497) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2017
Aroma is grassy and hoppy and very "bright". Theres a light cheese note in here as well that makes me wonder a bit? Taste is pale malty with light pine, grapefruits and a very "lemony" character. In the aftertaste, besides the bitterness, you get an almost herbal kinda flavor that is a bit out of character. I wouldnt say that its odd, but its very different from other Pale Ales that has passed my throat lately. Crisp, lemony and very "up there" in brightness.
