A balanced American Pale Ale hopped exclusively with Columbus hops. Columbus is one of my favorite hop varieties and will be a common thread through most of our beers. It has pungent herbal, citrus, and piney characteristics that I wanted to showcase to indicate the direction I’m going with the hops in most beers. There is a nice malt complexity to back up the columbus hops. As with most of my pale ales there is a touch of Munich malt that gives this beer a orange hue and a rich malt flavor.

On tap at brewpub pours a clear copper/Amber with a thin khaki head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and sweet citrus hops. Dry hop bitterness, lightly resinous, citrus orange and grapefruit, melon rind, and caramel malt. Solid!

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly cloudy orange pour with a white sticky head. Very nice aroma and taste of citrus and line resin. Good palate. Very nice brew.
