COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is base camp, where any craft brew exploration begins. A distinct hop nose and hop-forward flavor make Mirror Pond the quintessential Pale Ale. It is aromatically complex, multi-layered, and unmistakably “right.”

Like old friends you don’t visit often enough, then wonder why you don’t when you’re having a great time with them. Rich caramel with classic cascade in both aroma and taste. Superbly balanced classic apa.
