COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mt Whitney XPA (Xtra Pale Ale) is our take on a non-traditional American Pale Ale. Our XPA has a very low use of colored malts, which makes this pale finish dryer and accentuates the hop profile and aroma to the fullest. Traditional Cascade hops are at its core, but we feature “XTRA” amounts of Citra, Amarillo, and CTZ in the back end and in the dry hop for a modern take on this classic style. The idea with this newer breed of Pale is to have a year round session option that is hoppy and can appeal to both our classic and modern craft beer drinker.

Triple Dry Hopped Galaxy version. Hazy, pineapple hop sauce. Fruity, sweet and lightly bitter, surprisingly good as I don't think I've been crazy about any T-S hops before this.

marcus (10974) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 14, 2018
Can shared by beerboxer. Pours hazy gold with clinging white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a fairly bitter finish.

Hazy golden-orange color with a sizable head of soapy white foam. Biting citrus and pine characters with some skunk in the slightest. All balnced out by a decent helpng of caramel malt. One of Tioga’s underrated ales.

22 oz. bomber from Albertsons in Bakersfield. Lots of grassy and citrusy hop aroma coming out of a hazy orange/yellow body with a foamy, rocky white head. Caramel malt and dry, grassy hop flavors hit at the same time and battle each other all the way to the end. There’s a dry, slightly spicy note to the bitterness with some cattiness in the background. The malt here is a bit muddled or seems to be, possibly by the hops that are used. Finishes dry and bitter with a spicy bite that apparently isn’t the alcohol at 5% ABV. Interesting take on a pale ale.

Braudog (6944) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle. Huge top. The big citrus bloom aroma popped as soon as I broke the seal. Very light bodied but full of vim. Stark, pointed citric acidity, but little back bone. Extra pale indeed. (#6313, 8/31/2016)

Homer321 (5255) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2016
Bottle thanks to Jess. Hazy orange pour with signs of bottle conditioning. Moderate jammy nose of marmalade and citrus. Taste follows with hints of pepper and a touch of alcohol warming. Decent.

bhensonb (16124) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours bright, translucent gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus, light stone fruits, and possibly earth/resin. It’s a pleasing nose. Med body or so. It’s very hop forward. The malt isn’t strong enough to qualify as roasty, but it supports the large amount of hop. Lots of citrus, almost like orange zest, with some other fruits and earth. Pine might be in the mix. It’s not at all harsh, but it is dry and bitter. Good stuff.

Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Sample at the Tehachapi Beer & Wine Festival on 07/18/2015: Hazy pale orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6
PorterPounder (8396) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Santa Clara, Ca - Santa Clara Liquors. Hazy, dark golden pour, fluffy white head, nice lacing. Fresh spruce-like aroma. Solid light citrus bitterness, some minty notes, a touch of caramel. Thickish, rich mouthfeel.
