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°

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a medium sized white head that fades to a ring. Aromas are spicy and earthy, mildly fruity, and floral. Hop character is vaguely noble in the aroma. Flavors are sweet and quite bitter. Odd sort of burnt orange flavor. Grainy and grassy. Lightly bready. Not the most pleasant of hop flavors. Lively carbonation hides a slightly thin body.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish straw, hazy, light to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Grainy hop nose up front.   Lighter citrus & hop notes after that.   Similar tongue, moderate sweetness, but too much grainy flavors for my taste.   Not enough hops, they are quite minor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A bit more hoppy by the finish, sweetness and graininess die a little by this point.   Pretty pedestrian considering whats available up here in Washington.   Lingering soily notes.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

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.

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.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral pine and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with nice hop bite and citrus with lingering bitter finish. A very good APA from Real Ale.
