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.

On tap@ Noble Fir. Pours thin slightly cloudy pale straw yellow with head that thins out quickly. Aroma is punchy tart hops. Taste is big grapefruit and pine hops that last throughout. Not really any malt to speak of... and I don’t mind. Delicious, simple, sessionable.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with layered lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is light pine, citrus tones with tangerine, from the hops, light cereal malts, no esters, balance to the hops......taste is lightly sweet, mild cereal malts, pine, citrus, light resin, floral tones from the hops, no esters, finishing with moderate bitterness, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, minimal alcohol, high carbonation with light acid. This is a quite typical American Pale Ale. It is reasonably well balanced, although the hops, as expected, are in ascendancy. It is a bit trite overall. BJCP 8/3/14/3/7

Wittales (733) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Appearance was cloudy orangish gold with creamy diminishing off-white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are tropical, citrus and soft pine with soft biscuit malt sweetness. Taste are pineapple, tangerine, lemon, orange blast upfront. Mid sip is super soft pale sweetness with grapefruit, soft pine resin finish. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with light-medium body, then balanced lasting slightly sticky drying finish. Overall a beautiful west coast pale, need to try hopheads.
