COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s fitting this experimental pale ale was the first beer brewed at our Portland Pub. This XPA gets its bitter twist from Nugget, and Northern Brewer hops, then delivers a pronounced citrus kick from Cascade, Centennial and Citra hops. Consider this your next hop obsession.

Malt: Crystal
Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Nitro pour at mellow mushroom. Very fruity beer. Hops are pretty much lost in a maltier almost sweet pale. But it’s not bad at all. Very refreshing.
