The I-90 is the longest interstate highway in the USA at over 3100 miles, spanning 13 states. This ribbon of road is the fastest connection between Cuyahoga County and Chautauqua County, making it as easy for us to see The Tribe as it is for you to visit our brewery. As a tribute to the iconic roadway, we present to you a Special Ale brewed exclusively for our neighbors to the west. Cheers to Cleveland Beer Week!

A well hopped, yet drinkable APA that will satisfy and refresh. Brewed for CBW 2013.

Draft sample at The Brass Tap - Cincinnati. Bartender wouldnít let me buy a full one because she didnít like it. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-gold with a soft bone white head. Aroma of clean, grassy, floral hops, lemon, light dough, and crackers. Flavor is basically a lighter version of an already light nose. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, soft mouthfeel. She may have been right. It isnít great. But itíd be a nice summer sipper.

On tap. Pours an almost entirely hazy golden yellow color. Good thicker off-white head. Good ring of lace.. Good, grassy hop aroma, light citrus (lemon), light spicy hop, with a clean, biscuity malt profile. Medium body. Smooth, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, with a dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid pale ale - drinks very much like their Live, I think, but maybe a bit more bitter, more dry, less smooth.

pours a cloudy gold color with a fluffy white head. Almost looks like orange juice. Taste is clean. Biscuity malt, a little bit of orange peel flavor. Herby bitterness. Aroma is herbal and citrusy as well. It was refreshing, but it was kind of hard to finish. Refreshing and light, but also somewhat harsh and low on flavor all at once. Worth a try, but it kind of falls in with Southern tierís other pale stuff in that itís kind of forgettable.
