COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale. For batch number 1500, Josh & Brian decided to brew a big hoppy beer, yet make it quaffable by keeping the alcohol level down. Turns out everyone liked it so much, that it is now brewed year-round. Loads of Simcoe and Amarillo hops are blended in the fermenter, just after fermentation has finished, to impart a huge aroma of pine and citrus.

Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffly two finger head that fades to a cap leaving behind tons of lace. Hops galore is what can easily describe the taste. Tons of orange, citrus, and some chronic in there, no grain to speak of. Citrus and Pine hit the pallate first followed by the wonderful pine and resinous flavors of the hops. A bit of crystal malt sweetness comes in at the end to help bring the beer together. This may as well be an IPA, which is where my one complaint comes. With the huge hop aroma and aftertaste I’d like a bit more malt to balance the beer out. All together a very good hop forward beer, may as well be an American IPA.

Thanks Carl! A bottle a bit past prime, but still a nice smooth pale that had traces of the big citrusy hops. A bit of grainy body. Good stuff.

bryanbrews (1) - Modesto, California, USA - MAR 25, 2017 does not count
Bottled and opened after 11 days. Aroma slight fruity, estery, bubblegum. Appearance clear and very pale orange, many dry hop floaties add minor haze. Tastes sweet light/medium, bitter medium/heavy, sour light. Very crisp, light body. Soft carbonation with pretty fluffy white head dissipating quickly, not much lacing. Creamy finish with slight astringency. Overall a pretty light bodied ale quaffable but a tad on the bitter side to be deemed sessionable.
