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.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Draft at CAH. Pours dark straw with off-white head. Nose is heavy pinepple, grapefuit, peppery and citric. Tastes pale malty, with a big hop,m tropical fruit, and peppery flavor. Medium palate, very refreshing, not as heavy and alcoholic as many of the Port IPAs/APAS, and this one is very quaffable and delicious.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
2010-07-01. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Nice aroma, hops, grassy, lemon, grapefruit seeds/pith. 7+ Flavour is similar, lemon-grapefruit hops, light grassy notes, pale malt core is an afterthought. Average to light palate could be more full bodied but adds to the refreshing character here, maybe? Very drinkable. On tap at Tap House Grill, listed as Port Special Pale Ale, Seattle

Sampled on tap at the brewery on 7/16/2010. This American Pale Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and hoppy. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and piney. Good carbonation. Light and refresing. Super dry finish. Nice grapefruity hops throughout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.
