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 from Capitol Beer is Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is very much hop - going for citrus, pine and tropical fruits IMHO. Med + body. Flavor starts somewhat dank, moves on to citrus and fruits. I’m not sure a little more malt support would be a bad thing here, but clearly the hops are in charge. Hop burn from teeth through gullet. Yea!

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange, resin, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately astringent. Simple citrus-resin hop nose, but it’s clean. Good quaffing balance that’s just a touch too citric-acidic for my tastes, but still tasty. Very nice appearance and a pretty good mouthfeel too...less astringency would make it better, but it’s otherwise fluffy and pleasant. A solid albeit unexciting rendition.

22 oz. bottle. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with a huge off white head. The aroma is pretty classic with lots of citrus fruit, orange, florals and mild notes of mango/pineapple tropicals. The flavor is pretty much the same. Big time citrus and floral hops, underlying sweet fruit and a strong bready malt backbone. It has a pretty substantial body without any caramel malts, which is nice. Strong floral, fruity bitter finish. A pretty good, yet standard version of the style.

(Embouteillée 3 semaines avant la consommation): Base céréalière saine et prise dans la résine, sensation juteuse, exubérante et une finale contrastée, sèche. La simplicité et la fraicheur.

Aroma is floral/piney hops, a hint of spices and very slightly perfumed. The flavor is citrus, hop resin, malts and a bitter finish.

Bottle at Bottle Shop. It pours clear golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is soft, juicy, peach, apricot, lemon parfait, doughy, light floral, muffin and toasty sugars. The taste is crisp, bitter, minerals, lemon sherbet, grapefruit, cracker, apricot, peach and toasty grass with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Well-rounded and quaffable. Good stuff.
