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 (206) - 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.

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 (13403) - 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.

chinchill (2718) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2015
from can Clear golden with a decent head. Flavor: Hop forward with enough malt to tame the bitterness (mild). Both hops and malt are amped up just a little bit. Body is a tad watery.

phaleslu (7224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a clear gold color with a finger of white head that laces the glass and settles into a film. Notes of citrus fruits, grass, straw, dry grains, cereal and pale malts, mild spice, and herbs. The aroma also has a bit of hop oil character to it. Light-bodied, with a dry, clean mouthfeel and low carbonation. Nice beer. Glad they can this.
