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.

15th July 2014, pint on tap in Schooner, Sunset Beach, Orange County. Cloudy orange/golden pour with a thin white head. Plenty of hops for a Pale Ale, American or otherwise, but I am on the West Coast and they seem to like their hops to take over the beers around here. I enjoyed the brew actually, not too bitter or overridingly hoppy, just a handful or two too many. Liked the fact it was only 5.5% as I was on a mission drinking along the Orange County coastal road via Bus Route No1. Had a great day.

Draft from the source. Light dankness, some grass and malt with traces of pine needles. Flavor is huge west coast influence, good amount of pine. Lighter body with slight lingering dankness. Thin body is the biggest negative, overall very drinkable.

Hazed orange. Pine and sweet fruit aroma. Taste is very chewy. Dank and juicy with a lot of pine cone and crystal malt finish. Classic west coast

Nice hop presence. Hoppy but not overly bitter. Too hoppy for a pale ale. Draft at Spremger’s Tap Room.
