DO YOU LOVE THE WEST COAST?
Elusive have released Double Oregon Trail a couple of times now, to great feedback. Last year they released Sunset (Red) and Midnight (Black) variants of Oregon Trail, both beers were highly rated. Sunset is rated in the top 3 Red IPAs brewed in England. They love brewing quality Red IPAs. Midnight also features in the top ten Black IPAs. They've ramped up both these beers to 8% Abv, increasing the hops alongside the robust caramel bodies. Double Oregon will remain of the light and modern West Coast DIPA style, with a drinkability that belies its strength. We also have fresh original Oregon Trail that started the whole thing off.

Breakdancing in Doncaster // IPA 6.5%
For the final beer in the British Culture Archive series, they've taken the king of the US hops, Citra, and paired it with the gold-standard of English hops, East Kent Goldings. Citra brings its signature tropical and citrus punch, which underpins the tangerine, mint and floral notes of East Kent Goldings.
Firstly they have created a twin range of beers inspired by the concept of double albums, two separate beers with the same base but a slightly different twist, both available together to be enjoyed together. Both beers start with the same malt bill and Galaxy and Ekuanot in the kettle before the dry hopping parts their ways.
Twilight To Starlight 6.2% DDH IPA
Twilight to Starlight is double dry-hopped with Mosaic hops to add some blueberry and stone fruit notes on top of peach, papaya and citrus notes.
Dawn To Dusk 6.2% DDH IPA

Naked Soup 5% Pale Ale
Brewed in collaboration with one of their favourite Glasgow hot spots, Naked Soup. A juicy sessionable pale ale with a new hop blend from Freestyle Hops. Kohia Nelson is a blend of Nelson Sauvin and Rakau hops, but the most exciting part is the addition of dried passion fruit seeds to the blend to deliver strong passionfruit, orange and guava juice flavours with hints of citrus.
Raspberry Ripple 5.5% Ice Cream Sour
Their ice cream sours have been going down a storm so they've decided to launch a fresh new range in the series at a modest and (slightly) sessionable 5.5%. First up is this Raspberry Ripple inspired sour with kilos of fresh Scottish raspberries and vanilla soft serve ice scream swirled through.
Plus a large restock of all their most recent beers that have sold out.
