Sharps Brewery – Atlantic Pale Ale

Sharps AtlanticAtlantic is a deep golden colour. The aroma of Pale Ale is a blend of stunning citrus notes, juicy tropical fruits and fresh-picked hops with a touch of candy floss. The flavour has a delicate sweetness with fruity succulence and citrus spice to the fore. The finish is sweet at first becoming dry and lingering with hop zest.

Brew Dog – Dead Pony Club


PAYING HOP-FLECKED HOMAGE TO THE GLORY OF THE PACIFIC COAST, DEAD PONY CLUB HAS BEEN CRAFTED FROM AN INSANE AMOUNT OF US HOPS, DELIVERING MASSIVE CITRUS AROMAS OF LEMONGRASS AND LIME ZEST.

Dead Pony is the invigorating surf that pounds the iridescent shoreline yards from the salt-encrusted asphalt of Route 1. The hop-heavy west-coast wonderland awaits.

Dive in and the toasted malt base soon yields to a huge box-fresh hop hit, washing tropical fruit, floral garlands and spicy undertones all over your palate.

Inspired by US-Style pale ales, Dead Pony is a low amplitude, high voltage hop hit; California dreaming for the craft beer generation.
