COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There aren’t many constants in life. Two that we can rely on at FM are that water from cool, clear first magnitude springs are a constant 72 degrees Fahrenheit year-round, and that hops never fail to make us smile. 72 pale ale is a beer for the hop lover. It has a prominent citrus and somewhat floral aroma paired with a bready malt note in the background. The beer has an enticing, light copper color and is balanced, but leans decidedly towards the hops in its flavor and aroma. It is medium-bodied with a semi-dry finish that leaves a lingering herbal/spicy sense on the tongue.

72 features American two-row as a base malt with Munich malt to balance the hop flavor and Crystal malt to provide color and a bit of sweetness. Chinook hops provide the bittering while Cascade and Centennial hops are used for flavor and aroma. The aroma is enhanced by dry hopping.

Fruity tropical hop palate with bready malts backing up and a crisp copper finish.

Can from Tallahassee Trader Joe's. Nice pale ale that had some cotton candy and melon like sweetness to it with some tropical hoppinesss. Fine.

Eh, forgettable pale ale that just didn’t pop. Malty biscuit with very little Hop presence. Watery tasting too. Maybe it was an old keg??

The pure water clAim is dumb. It does not help this beer. Over carbonated malty mess. Garbage ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus and slightly piney hops with a kind of dirty/husky crystal malt character. Creamy medium body with moderate carbonation. Translucent copper with beige head. Well made and balanced, but i am just not a fan of crystal malt with american hops.

The style for me this spring/summer seems to be the American Pale Ale....or maybe just all pale ales in general. All these new breweries in FL popping up, so I like to judge based on the IPA. Did that all last year, and now the weather is super hot, so going for the lighter stuff. This one is ok, but glad I only sampled a single first. Balance is a little off. The flavor is there, but leans towards the sweeter side. May have a little too much malt here for my preference. Also picked up a single of their mild ale, so hoping that one is better.

Nice. I don’t like comparing beers to other beers, but having had this, by coincidence, side by side with SNPA, I have to remark on a great deal of similarity between the two. The main difference is that because this was local, it felt fresher (ymmv of course) and had a slightly more prominent hop nose and flavor, sharper hops too, a little piney on top of the citrus. Slightly more bitter. Commenting on its own merit: its a nice pale ale. Nice hop presence that doesn’t overstate it, keeping in the pale ale realm and not IPA. Bready clean malts. Balanced. Very drinkable.

On tap @ The Jones. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Sweet bready malt along with some toast, orange rind, and a touch of grass. More on the sweet side than I normally like, but it’s a good, almost chewy, malt profile. Pretty biscuity, too. Some light bitterness, lemon, and a little bit of orange zest. It’s okay. Definitely a serviceable pale ale.

Drake (14358) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Shared at a tasting. Hazy copper, thin head. Aroma of dank, citrus, tropical hops, crackery and grainy malt. The taste is tropical fruits, mango, pale malt, lime zest. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.
