Summer Pale Ale is our version of the iconic West Coast-style Pale Ale. Our brewer’s decided this beer should be all about the hops. Therefore, we brew it without any crystal malt. In choosing to brew a beer this way, we are left to focus solely on the expressive nature of the hops they choose for this beer.

Bomber into a glass. Not sure if fresh, as I bought it at the end of October...but it seems just fine. Lots of carbonation. Thick, persistent head. Aroma of fresh cut grass, onion, hints of pepper, bready yeast. Taste is lightly bitter, hints of tropical fruit, sweet, grassy, pepper. Finishes with a lasting bitterness with hints of fresh grass. Nice, easy drinking, full-flavored beer.

22 ounce bottle - Bullock’s in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: A hazy light copper-hued body filled with a little lively carbonation. Sustained, lightly fluffed white head.

Smell: Riding above the subtle base malts are tropical scented hops with a citrusy fruitiness as well as floral and pine tones, imparting notes of grapefruit, tangerine, even some papaya.

Taste: Soft pale maltiness with a hint of crisped grains and a small sprinkling of sugar. An initial floral component shifts to a long tropical, citrusy flavor, pulling in a fair but not unnecessary amount of hop bitterness and ending with a thin hint of muted pine and earthiness. Crisp, moreish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A notch above medium carbonation for a nice bit of crispness.

Overall: A tasty pale ale I finished in a flash. What happens now is we start with the shouting and the yelling and

Lore (1338) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 3, 2014
cloudy golden colour, huge off-white head; aroma of floral hops, honey notes, tropical fruits and some bread; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness with some tropical fruity notes, and minimal maltyness - a bit too intensive hoppyness for this not too definite body...otherwise great APA

daleharshman (959) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bomber purchased at the BevMo in Escondido ($4.29). Bottle is marked as 6.0% though the RateBeer description currently reads 5.2%. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber hue with two full fingers of creamy white foam and lots of big bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. AROMA of tropical fruit, significant dank hops, berries, floral and grassy hops, and light airy pine. FLAVOR of lightly sweet citrus, spicy hops, honey malts, and sweet tropical fruit. Quite well-balanced with a moderate spicy bitterness and slight sweetness. A nice hop-forward APA...an excellent beer to enjoy on the last day of summer. (135, 911)

Draft sample at the brewery. Clear gold color with a nice white head. Light aroma of green hops. Bolder flavor with some funky, dank hops and medium bitterness. Nice.
