COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A West Coast style American Pale Ale brewed with equal portions English Pale malt and German Vienna malt to provide lots of malt backbone and a dark straw color. The hop varietals are Millennium for bittering and Centennial for flavor and aroma. This brew is not for the hop impaired and is sought out by hop lovers.

Cask at CK. Aroma of caramel, red grape (fruity all around) and a moderate floral/herbal hop presence. Appearance is copper with bubbly white head. Flavor immediately hits with malts, but very quickly moves into dry floral hops; the finish is long and lingering. Palate is light, oily and flat. Nice.
