COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The namesake beer of COTU’s founders, Ray Ray’s Pale Ale starts with imported English 2-row barley that provides a full rich flavor. Near continuous additions of Cascade hops contribute both a balanced bitterness and classic spicy and citrusy aromas and flavors. This extremely drinkable un-filtered American-style pale ale checks in at 5.2% ABV and 42 IBUs.
