COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This highly hopped California style Pale Ale showcases the brewer’s art of balancing malt and hop characteristics. A generous addition of Munich malts balances the bittering from Chinook hops, and Cascade hops round out the flavor profile.

Editor: Please be sure that you are rating the correct beer. In particular, Arrgh! Pale ale is the latest version, as of late 2015.

From old tasting notes. Hazy orange gold color. Creamy white head. Pleasant herbal hop aroma. Crisp toasted malt flavor. Bitter citrus hop finish and aftertaste.

For its price point it is a good buy. Not an Outstanding Pale Ale but it is a great quaffer and a good thirst slaker on a hot day. I do like the taste despite the thinnish backbone, There is something about it that draws me in but I can’t put my finger on it.

BOTTLE. Pours a straw colour with little white head that lingers. Nose is fresh hops, pine needle. Fresh tropical hops are intense from start to finish with a hoppy toffee bitter finish. Source Cape Cellars

Light straw color, bright white head that falls to a thin collar. Nose is cereal, grain, grass, lemon, and jello. Odd but a bit bland. Taste is fresh grass, pine, citrus, lemon peel, soft pepper. Not expecting that much bitterness. Quite nice. Palate is pepper, grapefruit, pine, and lemon peel. Very aggressive finish. Lots of citrus in the finish. Quite good. Did not expect that.
