COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HOPS! Canniption Pale Ale is a huge beer by Pale Ale standards. While we appreciate a beer with balance and harmony, sometimes it makes sense to GO BIG and let the hops speak for themselves. We add a fair amount of sweet, caramely Crystal Malt to the mash to give it color, and enough body to stand up to the hops which are abundant throughout the flavor profile. Like the hops, the ABV is on the high end for a Pale Ale which just makes sense for a beer of this stature.

A fine pale ale. Perhaps it was just that I had this last after a long night, but it seemed a bit bitter and less smooth than other ales I’d enjoyed recently.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at the brewery, this pours a caramel color into the glass with a wispy head that leaves sudsy ring lacing. The nose is faint, of citrusy wood. Flavors of orange, caramel and nice pine resin finish with a decent bitter back. It has a medium body goes smoothly down the palate. Nice APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at West Flanders. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and great lacing. Citrusy, grassy, slightly sweet, floral, biscuity, and straw in the aroma. Taste is weird floral, slightly grassy, doughy, honey, grapefruity, and almost buttery - like their ESB - though not bad. Medium body with high carbonation. Meh.

Brouwerij (930) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at West Flanders, pours a hazy gold with thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, resinous, some citrus tones. Flavor is mild to moderately hoppy, citrus, mildly juicy hops, bitter finish and aftertaste. Didn’t get a whole lot of malt character. Soft carbonation, medium body, and mildly oily finish. A decent pale, but not memorable.
