COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopped-Up Blonde Ale, 5.4%ABV
Not really a Blonde Ale, not a Pale Ale, not an IPA. Happy Hops is a light colored refreshing ale with a pronounced hop character from the experimental 369 variety (Mosaic).

You may also see a special version of this beer once a year called Happy Hops Harvest, which is brewed with fresh "wet" hops grown locally. Available year round

(En ft au OBriens): Malts miells machables avec une rondeur collante et une scheresse aussi tranchante. Cest vgtal avec des notes de poires mais ce quon retiendra, cest la finale sche herbace la hauteur de sa corpulence.
