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.

A refreshing hop-forward pale ale, very light on the malt, a bit watery but a great session pale ale.

Clear golden color/ lasting ivory head. Fucking awesome aromas of spicy, tropical fruit hops with honey biscuit. Medium bodied with soft co2. Great balance of west coast ipa hop flavors on a solid pale malt base brew

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 19, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear orange-amber color with a finger of white head and some sticky lacing. S: A very nice hoppy nose full of of citrus, pine, and floral hop aromas. Just a mild grass note but otherwise it’s just tons of grapefruit and other citrus peel. What one might call dank. T: There is just a mild sweetness of malt and otherwise it’s all grapefruit and orange with more subdued notes of pine and grass. A light bitterness with some floral notes to go along with it. M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: Really a solid hoppy beer, which is something I always expect from Port.

Tap at Lost Abbey. Pours a lightly cloudy yellow. Superb grassy and floral notes. Flavor is so full of floral hop goodness. Creamy big bodied brew. Wow.

BillKismet (3335) - 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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2011
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!
