COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale golden ale that is both super crisp and super hop forward with a refreshing mouthfeel and a summer friendly 6% abv. Mosaic & simcoe hops lend tart blueberry and fragrant pine to a pleasingly bitter dandelion finish. We wanted the hops to be the star in this seasonal offering taking its name from both the hop plant, Humulus Lupulus, and its light color and cloud-like feel, nimbus.

*Pairs well with a wide range of foods from roast chicken to burgers to fish and chips, appropriate cheeses could range from a mild blue such as Gorgonzola to a traditional cheddar or Derby with Sage.

Shot (242) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Had this on tap at the Seventh Son brewery. Medium amber color with thin head. Aroma is loads of fresh hops. Flavors are light on malt, but heavy on the hops. It’s almost too much, but not quite. Light to medium mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish. Enjoyable pale ale with a kick. If you like hops, you’ll like the Super Pale ale.

Draft at Seventh Son. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted pale malts, floral hops on the nose, more resiny and earthy on the flavor, herbal, mild to moderate bitterness, ok for what it is.

Nephilium (1485) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Big Simcoe aroma to start off. Pours a clear amber with a large white head. This is a big hop forward beer, lots of pine and citrus notes. There’s not much going on from the malt side. Medium bodied, with a long linger bitter finish. This is one really good IPA.

Draft. No lace. Big onion aroma. If you like Simcoe and all that onion, un-citrusy pineapple, you’ll like this. If like me you don’t, you’ll roll your eyes at another Simcoe bomb. Onion flavor, onion finish. Also, onion.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Pour out of 16 oz can, clear orange pour with big fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, grass, lemon peel into a bit of floral hops, touch of biscuit, bready malt with a hint of spice. Taste was a mix of biscuit, orange, hints of lemon into a bit of pine, touch of red fruits, slight spice, finishing bitter. Pretty refreshing.

Leighton (13789) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Can shared during RBWG 2015 - Tampa. Pours clear orange-gold with a creamy white head. Great aroma, just rife with pithy citrus. Good balance in the flavor, light grassy bitterness, rindy citrusy, simple pale malt sweetness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pithy and dry on the finish. Solid offering.
