Pale Ale might be one of the most popular styles of craft beer, but after four+ years this is Upright’s first take on it. Favoring the classic profile of chinook and columbus hops over the current trend toward oddly tropical-tasting varieties, this pale should smell familiar with citrus and pine in the nose. It’s also extra light in color and leans on the bitter side. 5.8%

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
as Upright’s American Pale Ale w/Columbus, Chinook & Cascade Hops

Hazy golden color with creamy head. The malt profile is lean, off-dry, clean, a bit biscuity. Correct bitterness, but the hop qualities are not bright, and it ends with some chicory.
Not the best Pale Ale around, although nothing’s wrong with it.

Tap @ Grain & Gristle... Poured hazy, pale with a easy forming, frothy white head. Upright hit it out of the park with this. Border-line IPA level with a big, dank, earthy and pine-like hop notes all over the palace. Mouthfeel was mild and unobtrusive. Some citrus notes too especially before the finish. I could definitely through back a few pints of this.

On tap. Pours a somewhat cloudy copper color with a large white head. Big fruity nose with some earthy malt. The flavor is robust fruity hops, orange peel, lemon, some low bitterness, earthy, caramel. Very good. Big flavors, very smooth.

On tap at Upright, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light piney hops, classic Upright farmhouse notes and crackery malt. Flavour brings out similar notes, with crisp grassy hops, some farmhouse notes, and crackery malt. Finishes with a nice bite and astringency from the hops. Great pale ale.
