COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each time we make this ale we pick a different single variety of hops and use them exclusively in the brew. The malt bill stays fairly consistent from batch to batch so as to allow the distinctive hop flavors to come through. Here are just a few of the hops used in the past: Simcoe, Vanguard, Sterling, YCR-004, Amarillo, Satus, Santium, Tomahawk, and Columbus. Available on draft seasonally.O.G.: 1.060;50 BU’S

BMMillsy (1365) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Part of a sampler at the brewery. this one pours a super light golden with a small white ring of head. Very sweet citrus aroma, raw vegetal hops, grass, interesting. Flavor follows with lots of pine and vegetal hop bitterness, slightly dirty finish, not much sign of citrus here but that's ok. a very light bodied pale ale and medium carbonation. Overall the finish takes away from this, as it is a touch unpleasant. Only OK.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Clean and extremely floral nose with a hint of biscuity malt. Orange blosson and citrus nose leading to a very clean and peonounced hop bitterness that leads to a wonderfully oily resinous mouthfeel. Nice hop finish with an extremely dry followthru.
