Steel City Draconian Times


Steel City
Brewed at Little Ale Cart
Sheffield, England
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 6 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.2%
This brew is the first for a while to use Safale US-05 yeast (we usually brew with K-97) to see how the hop character comes out with this very popular yeast, one we like quite a lot. Itís also the first brew for a while to eschew our usual Herkules bittering hops in preference for the hop-which-smells-most-like-Amsterdam, the pungent Columbus, in alliance with some true A-list beasties such as Galaxy, Citra, Simcoe and Motueka. Coming in at over 100 IBUís this is a brew for hopheads, make no mistake about that, but itís also destined to be a thing of great complexity with the combination of hops used; look out for it and let us know what you think!
