COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Pale Ale is our version of the iconic West Coast-style Pale Ale. Our brewer’s decided this beer should be all about the hops. Therefore, we brew it without any crystal malt. In choosing to brew a beer this way, we are left to focus solely on the expressive nature of the hops they choose for this beer.

ACHops' rating

ACHops (1566) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2012
On tap@ Noble Fir. Pours thin slightly cloudy pale straw yellow with head that thins out quickly. Aroma is punchy tart hops. Taste is big grapefruit and pine hops that last throughout. Not really any malt to speak of... and I don’t mind. Delicious, simple, sessionable.

From tap at Toronado, San Francisco. Royally hopped American Pale Ale with citrussy fruits and light biscuity malt. Flavour is quite bitter with a dry finish. Body is medium. Solid.

On a warm Thursday evening with the scent of summer and opportunity (and a little of the bathroom due to our unfortunate table placement) in the air, had a draft at Cork City. Solid pale ale, I liked it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can from ale yeah. Golden color. Aroma is pine hops. Aggressive west coast hop flavor and finish. Grapefruit peel bitterness on the back end. Smooth and light malt body makes it more refreshing. Pretty nice.

Gold with an orange tinge and white head. aroma is pine and citrus. Huge hoppy flavor with lots of bitterness and some very faint biscuit notes. Body seems thin for a pale ale - perhaps it needs some of those non-fermenting dextrin components that the missing caramel malts would have supplied. This reminds me much more of a session IPA than a Pale Ale (West Coast or not).

New cans - strong citrusy hop aromas, primarily of tangerine. gold and clear in color with nice long lasting head. crisp mouthfeel, nice citrus, pine, and faint resin flavors.

javiercrasher (536) - Granada, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2016
Sin poder ver la fecha de embotellado ni consumo preferente se hace difícil evaluarla. Buena presencia, sutil aroma a pino, amarga y seca.

RedSox2004 (1869) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bright orange with a slight haze, two-finger bright white head thin but solid retention and nice lace. Aromas of grassy and pine hops, earth caramel and honey. Taste is mostly citrusy hop, with grass pine and some dank bitterness. Gentle caramel sweetness.Light to medium body; nicely carbonated, creamy smooth mouthfeel and a dry, bitter finish.

bbbeer (811) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Golden color with small white head. Fresh piney hops, medium-light body, a bit of carbonation. Nicely balanced flavors, bitterness predominates with pine and orange but there is some malt and very drinkable. Excellent.
