What? Seems ď1Ē is a pattern number with us? First year anniversary just passed, we brew beer one barrel at a timeÖand now our newest beeróOne. This beer is what is affectionately known as a ďSMaSHĒ beer in the brewing community. That is to say, a Single Malt and Single Hopped beer. Thatís right, coming out of a brewery that is obsessed with complex malt bills, the brewer decided to embark on the extremely complex exercise of simplicity. We consider this beer to be loosely in the style of an Extra Pale Ale, and just because itís named One, doesnít mean you canít try two. Why? We took two-row barley and Columbus hopsóthatís itóto make this beer. A multi-step mash at different temperatures squeezed every characteristic we could out of the malt. We aggressively late hopped the beer in the boil to create massive Columbus hop characteristics, but without an overwhelming bitterness. It is a very perfumey, floral and citrusy beer that celebrates the Columbus hop with gusto. In fact, it should have a holiday named after it instead of that other guy.

Mostly-clear golden with a thin white head. Funky hop nose of dusty herbal and grassy hops, with a belgianesque blonde malt backbone. Crisp and clean flavor with depth, complexity and body. Nice golden malt grain base with a little perfumy and floral hop tone, with a dusty and herbal pale malt finish. Pretty nice for a SMaSH beer!

On tap at Witís End. Color is a bright gold with a nice little head. Aroma of hops and pine sap. It has a lighter medium body that gives a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is light grain backed by spicy hops that show with a bit of white pepper. A mild bitterness comes out in the after taste. Overall its a nice brew just not great.

4oz sample brewery. Pours a clear yellowish golden with a white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of the same with some belgiany tastes. Nice brew.
