This was a beer that really excited us here at Crafty Towers when it first appeared, being the beer that announced Bright's then new brewer Jon Seltin as one to watch (and watch out for overhead if strapped to his paraglider...). He's backed it up with many a fine release since and now is back with the latest take on the hoppy-as-hell IPA. It's not quite the same beer as last time around. Why? Because Jon "couldn't help ratcheting it up a couple of notches". Ah, good old temptation got the better of him, which is nice. That means you can expect a slightly higher ABV at 7.4 per cent and even more hop aroma thanks to a "slightly higher dry hopping rate". This batch is keg only but they're planning on a packaged release in 750ml in the near future now that the have the ability to do so with their spanking new brewery.
