COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Greek myth of Pandora has been interpreted in many ways but one common understanding is that she is the woman who, out of curiosity, opened a box which released the evils of all mankind. Pandora was the first woman, a gift from the gods to man. What most do not realize is that her name means “all-giving” as each god contributed to creating Pandora by giving her unique, seductive gifts. Regardless of which version of the myth you follow, you should know that her curiosity ultimately enabled one key gift to remain in the box for man for eternity – the gift of hope. As our first gift and flagship beer, we hope Pandora awakens your curiosity without harm and keeps the promise of hope of an amazing adventure in craft beer. Pandora also happens to be the name of Chris’ first dog! A medium bodied beer that marries the light fruit and spice characteristics of the Idle Hands house yeast with the hoppiness of an American Pale Ale. The late kettle additions and dry hopping with Amarillo combine with the soft round malt profile to create sensations of orange marmalade, light toast and hints of white pepper and allspice.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012 Pours a thick white head leaving little sheeting. Color is a clear golden brown. The nose is dominated by a yeasty spiceness. Palate reveals a medium body with dryness and a slight toastiness with a lingering hoppy finish that separates this brew from a malty Belgian. The Belgian yeast adds complexity. Tasted at the brewery and in a growler.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pretty hoppy for the style, with a good amount of yeast and malts.

Pours hazy deep amber into a tulip. White head recedes to skim surface leaving scant sheets. Sweet citrus and yeast aromas. Dry with caramel upfront turning to tangerine before the lasting dusty yeast finish.

On tap at Atwood’s Tavern - Cambridge, MA. Leafy, hoppy aroma that blends with a very punch and spicy Belgian yeast. There’s a bitter bite to this and it doesn’t seem to come straight out of the hops, instead from some of that acerbic, slightly medicinal, herbal yeast character. I founds the hoppiness quiet enjoyable, but could not quite jive with the yeast character. Overall, it was generally drinkable.
