COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the first beers I brewed after moving out to California to begin my brewing education was a Pale Ale. This version is a true testament to the influences the Wild West had on my early brewing. My Pale Ale is loaded with US-grown Cascade, Crystal, and Columbus hops, so be sure to take a good sniff to enjoy their robust aromas before taking your first sip. Sensory Profile: An aromatic beer with notes of citrus, pine, a noticeable bitterness, and a touch of malty backbone to help balance it out. Food Pairing: Foods with a spicy kick are a great match, as the bitterness of the hops will help to cool the palate before your next bite. Mexican food and pizza are natural matches.

MarkBarnes (419) - Waterville, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Oct. 15, 2011; on tap at a pub in Katonah, NY. Lovely dark-copper shade for a pale ale; easy to count sips by the lacing on the glass. Hops are aggressive in a nice way, but the brew is very well balanced and full-bodied. Will definitely seek this one out.
