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.

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.

Pours a hazy, barely transparent amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Malty aroma is rather hoppy, almost more like an IPA than a "regular" PA. Flavor fills the mouth with slightly sweet malt and a fair amount of hops, more resiny than woody and not at all bitter. Smooth texture has a decent amount of fizz and thickness. A great way to welcome summer!

On tap at Lost Abbey.. Pours golden with a white head.. Aroma is floral hops.. Flavor was very hoppy, more like a IPA than a pale ale.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Draft at Good Dog. Clear gold pour. Nice mellow grassy hops. Celery hearts. Sage. Thyme. Resin. Artichokes. Lemongrass. Bit numbingly herbal but otherwise a smooth blend. Bitter finish. Thirst quenching.

deyholla (6991) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2013
On tap at Bangers & Laces. Pours a near clear rich orange with a slight gold hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice combination of citrus and dank pine with a light, sweet grain backbone. Flavor is similar with more dank pine and a lighter citrus presence with the same light backbone.

On tap at O’Briens. Bright yellow, lacing, looks good. Smells hoppy, lemons. Light hoppy flavor, goes down fast. Overall a solid pale ale with a good hop profile, maybe a little light on malts but that’s probably why it’s a summer pale ale.. Would buy another on draft.

It is mild and timid on first sip but drink some more and a world of hop flavors will appear on your palate.
