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.

Pours gold with a good off-white head. Lots of pine both in aroma and taste. Hoppy for a lower-alcohol IPA. Pretty good overall.

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