COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a lightly hazy body, golden in color, and with a white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is quite orangey, some grass and green pine cones. A pleasant malty sweetness is dealt with by the bitterness, fruits and pine cones blending in. Perhaps a bit sweet on the palate, but nice anyway. Nice carbonation. Long, bitter, sweet and fruity finish, the bitterness going on for a good while. Nice indeed. 130815

Growler @ Cumming Growler Shop. Pours clear, golden color. Thick tan foam. Good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, loads of alphas. Flavor is bold, sharp, and overpowering hops. Bitter resin taste. Huge pine. Sticky malt, nice body. No flavor of malts at all. It’s all hops in this one. (3766)

Draft. Gold body with a frothy, white head, lasting. Big aroma of orange, grapefruit peel, passion fruit, sweet tropical fruits, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The aroma is more interesting and enjoyable than the flavor which leans toward the resin and pine tastes of the hops.
