COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale. For batch number 1500, Josh & Brian decided to brew a big hoppy beer, yet make it quaffable by keeping the alcohol level down. Turns out everyone liked it so much, that it is now brewed year-round. Loads of Simcoe and Amarillo hops are blended in the fermenter, just after fermentation has finished, to impart a huge aroma of pine and citrus.

Jur (441) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2014
Clear amber, modest white head. Huge hop nose, but surprisingly malty start. Very fresh character, with bone dry bitter finish. Gets the job done.

Block (1649) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
A nice pale ale. This is what I would expect from a local pale with a citrus and spice aroma to a well rounded finish. Good hop flavor with a sweet and smooth body. Very sessionable.

Fatehunter (1521) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a finger and a half of head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma is a burst of lemon, pine and grapefruit with a little pineapple. The taste has great balance. Nice moderate grapefruit bitterness mixed with honey sweet, finishes with a dry bitter. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Tasty.

Very citrusy aroma, and long length. On the bitter side, but with good balance. Pretty in the glass.
