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.

Bottled May 29, 2014.
Appearance: A huge dense off-white head erupts out of the clear and vibrantly orange hued body and sticks around with great retention.
Aroma: Bit of orange, mango and grapefruit, a bit floral. There’s a slight yeasty quality in the aroma, and a bit of a homebrew maltiness.
Taste: Crisp and refreshing with a noticeable hop flavor that is prominently oranges. The body is crisp and clean until the finish, which is a bit dominate by the malt that comes through sharply at the very end to throw this off a bit. Refreshing until the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with filling carbonation, a bit overcarbed.
Overall: This was much better on tap last year. This year, in bottles, tastes like homebrew, pours like one, and is carbed like one. It lacks the professional refineness that should be associated with a top tier brewery.

Very tasty brew. Kind of a pilsner aroma up front but lots of hops in the end. Very bitter and quite dry. Another great beer for the hot days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Probably the best APA I’ve ever had. A bit over carbonated but after it mellows and warms up this is an exceptional hop treat. Bright citrus hops all around and a mild malt balance. Super flavorful and drinkable.

22oz bomber from Xroads. Poured a very nice looking hazed orange body with a frothy lace dropping head. Aroma is tangerines, eraser shavings, wooden pencil, older oranges, dry bread crusts. Nice body, medium and creamy with softer carbonation. Flavor is not as citrusy fruity as the aroma, older citrus, wet toast, floral, even a hint of wood. Nice.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a big rocky white head. Kind of crown shaped. Very cool. Aroma is lightly floral and hoppy. Taste is slightly dank and citrusy. Not too bitter. Really nice balance. Crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing and enjoyable. Plenty of flavor but not over the top bitter.

arminjewell (8462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, 3 weeks old, very hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of citrus, lemon, orange, grapefruit into a bit of dank, piney notes in there as well, slight bready notes but not much. Taste is a mix of grass, pine, grapefruit, slight dank, hints of grain, bread, finishing fairly bitter, clean. Tasty.

skmikeg (1203) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Pours a bright orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits, pine, dank hops, herbal hops, and some light bready/sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with a lot of nice citrus and tropical fruit notes. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing, and drinkable APA.
