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!

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.

22 oz bottle poured, shard by T. Thanks! Great back story to this beer, and a fun try for sure. Cloudy golden pour with a ton of cloud foam head. Aroma is earthy hop, bready malt, and soft spice. Flavor is much of the same. A bready grain note that lingers. Slight orange. Solid beer here.

Some body dropped the ball and brought this pale ale to our "Hops-free" beer tasting. Of course I tasted it anyway. About what I expected.
