Brewed with classic aromatic hops, Citra, Mosaic and Amarillo, this is a quintessential American Pale Ale, rich with the bouquet of citrus, melon, apricot and peach. A complex malt bill introduces some longer-chain sugars giving it a full body, whilst balancing the strength of the hops.

A firm favourite during the autumn and winter months. A dark, warming brew. Burnt sugars and roasted malts compliment the premium Maris Otter barley, supplanting the light bitterness of aroma hops. With hints of dried fruit and dates, this rich ale has been likened to the oak: steadfast throughout the year, regardless of the season.

Armada Ale was one of the first new 'Golden Ales' that emerged in the 1980s. It has a pronounced yet balanced hop character, derived from Fuggle and Golding hops. Robust, refreshing and still a port of call in any beer-drinker's voyage of discovery.

We wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to beer! A beer that you know you can pick up and appreciate or simply get it down ya neck. Extra pale base malts are used to keep it crisp and give the hops a great platform to dance on. Masses of hop additions during the whirlpool and a huge dose of dry hops make this a brilliantly 'easy' IPA.

Steeped in history; forgotten, then rediscovered and reinvigorated by Craft Brewers in America. Ours is a thoroughly modern take, where a rounded malt body meets an avalanche of hops. Mango, lychee, grapefruit. Love hops? Drink me. Vegan friendly.

An easygoing IPA known to cause tropical tremors on the taste buds. Inspired by the Golden State and bursting with juicy fruitiness, Azacca and Mosaic hops bring peach, mango and tangerine flavours to the fore while Chinook hops deliver a touch of pine and bitterness for balance. A stellar taste explosion.
