This is a golden coloured ale with a citrus grapefruit, resinous and tropical aromas. It has an initial sweet taste immediately followed by a grapefruit taste and bitterness. It is a typical APA.
This is an unfiltered, unpasteurised natural beer.
The Brewery notes say the concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sip on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of whole leaf American hops are added in ever increasing numbers at the end of the boil giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
Good things in food and drink come from Cornwall, but also some unusual things, as in the case of this IPA.
The ale has a pale red colour, with rich hoppy aromas.

This is a golden amber ale with a fresh off the bine hop aroma, with hints of vanilla. It is has a pleasant malt and orange warming taste with a fruit sharpness and a good hop bitter background, without overpowering bitterness.
