We brewed our first Signature Hop Pale Ale to showcase the power and magnitude of the aptly named German hop varietal - Herkules. With a mighty alpha-acid content (upwards of 17%), matched only by its commanding aroma, this hop is formidably equipped for both bittering and packing a robust citrus punch. 12.5°

Thanks John! Enjoyed in a tulip. Pours with a finger head. decent lacing hazy but not quite an unfiltered appearance. Earthy and piney on the nose. Overall a weak nose. mild bitterness, hint of citrus and tree bark. Very earthy.

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has some wheat notes, as well as some grass, lemon and a bit of orange. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of wheat, caramel and biscuit malt notes, as well as some white pepper and orange peel. I get only a slight amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Good looking brew, tannish orange and mostly clear with rising bubbles and a great 1.5 finger white fluffy head and good lacing. Aroma is great! Crisp and spicy hops are very up front. Pepper and citrus, some earthy malts, and a little fruit. Flavor is also quite good. Very hoppy for a pale ale, this could easily be an IPA from all the hops flavor, but it’s not quite as bitter. Earthiness and peppery spices again make a showing, along with some citrus and a little biscuit malt. Body is pretty rich and full for a typical pale ale, yet drinkability is maintained. An earthy hop bitterness finishes it off. Overall this is a very likeable beer and I’m glad I took the chance and bought a whole sixer of it. I will now have to try more beers from this brewery!

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours golden. All sorts of grassy herbaciousness, with some citrus as well. Reminds me of Lost Gold. Easy to drink and pretty clean finish.

Bottle thanks to errl. Golden pour with a white head. Nose is fresh cut grass, citrus, light bitterness. Easy on the palate, fresh hops, florals, faintly bitter, and grass.

ttoadee (652) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Plae golden pour, decent white head. Citrus hops in the nose, substantial, but not overpowering. Tangy bitter. Piney/citrus hops drive the middle to an almost resin finish, but still balanced. Good,

Okay, last question. Who is your favorite Backstreet Boy?

Oh! The little rat-faced one.

No, no, Nick! He’s so good to his mother.

According to this, you’re both idiots.
