COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the first beers I brewed after moving out to California to begin my brewing education was a Pale Ale. This version is a true testament to the influences the Wild West had on my early brewing. My Pale Ale is loaded with US-grown Cascade, Crystal, and Columbus hops, so be sure to take a good sniff to enjoy their robust aromas before taking your first sip. Sensory Profile: An aromatic beer with notes of citrus, pine, a noticeable bitterness, and a touch of malty backbone to help balance it out. Food Pairing: Foods with a spicy kick are a great match, as the bitterness of the hops will help to cool the palate before your next bite. Mexican food and pizza are natural matches.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught at Hop Devil, NYC, as Captain Lawrence Freschester Pale Ale
Muddy golden color; creamy head. The aroma shows some nice hops with fruitness. Smooth malty taste, with a good hopping, but unfortunately there is a light impression of stale beer; maybe the keg has been open too long.
