COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One off - Lup’in walks out of the shadows to the centre of the stage. Relatively unknown, he gives the nod to Hit the Lights, ready to be introduced to the world. Paying no attention, walks off the edge and lands on the arse.

English malt backbone, bittered with Anglo/Euro hops in the shape of Target and Aurora, then dry hopped with the same again. This is a bitter IPA with loads of fruity character, the way we think it should be. Did we mention it was bitter?

Like any good IPA this beer will cut through spicy dishes, pair well with fried or salty foods, but best enjoyed in the sun. Batch 0002

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 4, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle sourced at Sourced Market, London. It pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is gently hoppy with notes of grass and dandelions, with some citrus and grapefruit. Taste follow suit with gentle bitterness and light malts to sustain it. More citrus grapefruit notes alongside grassy field tones. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Overall, good.

ManVsBeer (10445) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Spirited Wines, Manchester. Golden-amber, very little head. Has a fine IPA nose and relatively light texture for its strength. It’s a little understated in the taste department but there’s enough to enjoy.

Not quite expliciit for me. It was a good experience but nothing special. It lacks zest

3.3
Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Amber with slim head and medium carbonation. Bland aroma to start with but after a little time reveals a rather pleasant combination of tangerine, lemon and orange pith with wet hops and earthy tones. Taste is a little muddled with a prominent caramel backbone and sweet fruit hop notes, that are sadly short lived, soon leading too a musky earthy/resinous some what bitter finish. Good ideas but sadly poorly executed.
