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.

yngwie (13224) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a lightly hazy body, golden in color, and with a white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is quite orangey, some grass and green pine cones. A pleasant malty sweetness is dealt with by the bitterness, fruits and pine cones blending in. Perhaps a bit sweet on the palate, but nice anyway. Nice carbonation. Long, bitter, sweet and fruity finish, the bitterness going on for a good while. Nice indeed. 130815

brokensail (10653) - 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.
