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.

The Augment range is all about experimentation and advancement of techniques in our own brewing processes. Takes a Little Time is the end result of our experimentation with Treehouse Brewing Co's Holy Trinity yeast blend and bringing it to North Wales. Notes of clementine, grapefruit and sticky, sticky hops are bursting out of this incredible IPA; a nod to the American haze-craze brewers we love so much.
