COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Being the first beer off our bottling line, Pin Up Pale Ale knows just what you like. Bittered with Summit, and dry hopped with Citra and Chinook, it’s herbal hop aroma and San Diego-style bitterness pushes the Pale Ale boundaries. A simple grain bill keeps it hop forward with a malty balanced. But we don’t want to reveal too much, just enough for intrigue!

Sathorael (151) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours a medium amber with great clarity and lacing. Aromas of honey, pine, citrus and a little caramel. Taste is pine resin, grapefruit and a sweet malty backbone. Finish dry but semi sweet. Should be an ipa if not for the abv. Outstanding brew from a brewer that cares about the product.

Small and unassuming ale with a big bite. Clear and dark golden, light hop aroma. Taste brings on the hops, finish is decidely astringent, piney.

bergstaden (1216) - Røros, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2014
Deep golden with a white head - Nice hoppy aroma - A good malt body to support the hops that leaves a herbal taste and a good bitterness - The hops goes into a long hop finish that is dry - This was good
