A beer both sumptuously malty yet enthrallingly hoppy, we teamed up with our friends at Dark Star for this show stopper of a beer. Multiple hop additions mean massive aromas of lemongrass, strawberry and pine, which develop on the palate while a complex malt bill delivers sweet waves of hazelnut, caramel and summer berry flavours. The finish is balanced, moreish yet crisply classy. Get ready to be entertained, Rock Star has entered the building!
