COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This single hopped pale ale uses copious amounts of Citra hops to achieve a complex tasting experience. The Scottish Golden Promise malt presents a graham cracker like base for the Citra which infuses the brew with aromas of passion fruit, mango and peach and flavors of grapefruit rind and spice.

On tap @ Cellarmaker. Finally getting to try this. About damned time. Hazed yellow beer with a white head. Mango, peach, pineapple, and grapefruit on the nose. Nice stuff. Tart/acidic tropical fruits, plenty of citrus, and some mild herbal qualities. A soft, bready, biscuity malt profile comes through as well. A touch of bitterness on the back end. Maybe a bit of orange peel and pith. Solid offering.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 Requiem for a style? Some of Cellarmaker’s pale ales (including this one) are like a blank canvas with relatively few phenols from yeast and essential oils from grain; just body from residual sugar and protein and some modest bitterness from bittering hops.The brewer then paints on this canvas with one, two, or three hops with high flavor intensity (8-9, as measured by Charles Faram: http://www.charlesfaram.co.uk/hop-varieties/?filte and ends up with a beverage analog to Kazimir Malevich’s "Red Cavalry" (1930). This is probably my favorite style, but it seems to be under critical attack these days from knowledgeable people like Stan Hieronymus, who think pale ales should not be flavor-hop forward: http://appellationbeer.com/blog/some-bitterness-to Balance is not always a virtue...
