A redux of Reboot, our best-selling juicy pale. Same (new!) Reboot recipe, same big Citra dry-hops and mango - we just did some magic with our malts, temperatures and resulting sugars to create a super short fermentation, leaving a proper beer that's full of body and taste (unlike your usual AF-lite stuff). The result is a hazy, juiced-up banger which ought to satisfy the most discerning craft beer heads.

This tart and refreshing Cloudy Lemonade is bursting with citrus flavours from fresh lemon juice and zest. Paired with the zingy character of our mixed fermentation base beer, it's a light and crushable session sour rounded off with lingering sweetness. Enjoyable when the sun is out, and even when it's not.

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.

This isn't your average bitter - the hops do more to this deep amber coloured beer than just provide bite. Any old hop can do that! We've selected some of the most aromatic and tangy hops from the other side of the pond to give this red a fresh hit that complements the caramel flavours of the malts that gives this beer its colour.
