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.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Hazy peach body with a fluffy, creamy white head. Lovely, leafy and floral hoppiness with some specks of soap yeast of the periphery. Honeysuckle and floral hop flavors entwined with pleasant, crisp bitterness to tie it into a delcious boquent. Mellifluous underpinning does not at all mute the hoppiness, but rather acts as a harmonic accompaniment.

Brown pour with a lacy head. Aroma is lots of citrus and pine hops with a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is sweeter than expected, but well balanced by a big dose of the hops. Very nice!
