COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by the powerful hop aroma of Field 41 Pale Ale. This perfectly sessionable, but generously dry-hopped, Pale Ale drinks easy with a smooth bitterness and is named for the hop field that is home to Bale Breaker Brewing Company. Light and refreshing, it’s the perfect beer for a day on the river or afternoon on the slopes.

38 IBU. 05.01.14 label date. Poured from a can into a tumbler on 06.27.14. A: Grapefruit. I could smell it when opening the can. It has a malt base. A: 1/2 finger head. See through yellow body. Nice lacing. T: Flower and tangerine dominate. Pine, and malt as a base are subtle. P: Crisp and bubbly enough. O: This has a nice balance and is very sessionable at 4.5%. There is a nice lingering bitterness that mixes in with sweetness. It’s surprising how hoppy this is for 38 IBU. I feel that there are better session pales out there though and would not go out of the way to find this one.

Perfect session able pale ale. Had on tap last week at Chucks 85th. Nice and hoppy with enough malt backbone to compliment. Good stuff.

12 oz can, served in a pint glass. Pours dark yellow golden with medium thin white head that laces well. Aroma is thin pale malt and crisp, resiny hops on the back, loads of light citrus and floral notes. Taste is even better - thin lightly sweet pale malt, slight grainy bitterness on the finish, with big fresh hop flavor throughout. Grassy, citrusy, earthy, grapefruit, floral fresh hops all over the place. Could easily be a session IPA, and honestly better than most of those. Very similar to Fremont Summer Ale. Incredible flavor depth for the ABV, and light enough I could drink these all day. If you like your pale ales hoppy, I doubt you’ll find much better than this.

nose: beautiful airy, grassy, citrusy. like a cloudy eastern washington day in a field in spring. palate: light and lemony but fruity and substantial. no unpleasant bitterness to speak of, but tons of great hops shine through. beautiful on all fronts and my only complaint is it coulda had more depth.

Golden yellow with thin white head. Smells of citrus, hops and resin. Taste is citrus, hops and a mild resin. Not overly bitter but crisp. Medium body, Medium Carb.

12oz can in Seattle. Small white foam on hazy, yeast-hop floaty-filled pale orange body. Gorgeous fresh green hop aroma, like sticking your head in a barrel of fresh hop flowers. Elemental flavor for me. Body has a similar fresh green hop and crisp dry finish. Very refreshing, a tasty interesting beer.

Can from trade, thanks Michael! Pours orange gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is dank, grassy, citrus and tropical fruit. Flavor starts sweet, juicy, gives way to grapefruit, a touch of mango and grass. Grass and grapefruit peel bitterness in the finish.

Can from prufrockstar. Nose is amaze balls. Dank. Spice. Herb. Citrus. All that. Taste is quenching with a tropical note. Slight citrus in flavor but a lot of dankiness too. Really damn good pale. Probably more like an ipa.

Golden color out of the can with a foamy white head. Fresh, fragrant citrus hop aroma. Very enjoyable, full flavored session IPA with lots of red grapefruit juice, orange peel and some peach notes, all over a nice bready malt. If I could get this it would be a full time summer beer.
