COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American craft beer has become known worldwide for being innovative, unique and above all: hoppy! This deep golden, hop-forward American Style Strong Pale Ale brings loads of unique American hop character and as with most things American, some international influences. We blend four different hops from three different countries to achieve the harmonious balance of citrus and tropical fruit. The clean bitterness is balanced by the sparing use of crystal malts and a blend of base malts including a portion of Maris Otter English malt and American red wheat. Our house ale yeast contributes mild fruity esters and leaves the fermented beer nearly crystal clear, only for us to come along and throw in a bunch of dry hops, leaving a permanent “hop haze.” We think it’s a beautiful thing!

On tap at the brewery. Pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma and flavor are what I expect from a pale ale. I get some nice biscuit and toffee notes, as well as some orange and lemon. Very well balanced overall and easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
