In a nutshell: Hoppy American Pale Ale from Tiny Rebel of Newport, South Wales.
The lowdown: This is an extra hopped West Coast Amercian Pale Ale where the grapefruit and pineapple aromas are followed up by super juicy fruit flavours and a well balanced mouthfeel. It goes down with a pleasantly dry finish and satisfying aftertaste.
Style - Bitter, Pale Ale & IPA ABV 5.0% - Moderate Strength
Starting from very modest origins in 2008 brother's in law Brad Cummings and Gazz Williams first brewed in Brad's father's garage. In the intervening years they've become one of the most successful of Welsh craft breweries and in April 2019 moved into a 60,000 sq ft site in their home town of Newport.
Their first beers hit the market in 2012 and almost immediately began scooping up awards culminating in 2015 when Cwtch, their red ale, was named Champion Beer of Britain at the Great British Beer Festival.
Brad and Gazz take much of their inspiration from the American craft beer movement and are keen innovators, trying out new recipes regularly which invariably seem to meet with success and has given them the huge following they can now boast.
