This beer’s complex flavor comes from a deceptively simple grain bill (pale, dark Munich and crystal 15) and an even simpler hop schedule (Simcoe and CTZ), but at 81 IBUs on top of 62 original gravity points, its hop-centric nature will strike you as anything but simple. Don’t let the coppery color fool you - this one’s a hop monster.

Midway between a Pale and an IPA. Perhaps this could be a Cape Ale. Pleasant hoppy aroma and flavour. Finish a might dissapointing

2012 OBF. Big hoppy American Pale Ale. Citrus up front and caramel in the background. A dry finish with light bitterness.

Pours light copper/amber with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Aroma is citrus hop over mild caramel. Med body. Flavor matches aroma, but is much stronger. There’s a lot of hop in this. It finishes dry and very NW bitter. A bitter pleasure. Lots of flavor.
