Commercial Description

This medium bodied beer boasts a moderate to strong hop aroma and a color that’s pale golden. If the pale ale has been dry hopped, the beer will appear a bit hazy in the glass. Otherwise, you’ll find pale ales to be pretty clear once poured. Most often, American hops are used to concoct American pale ale- and these usually embody a citrus character. Sometimes, we refer to pale ale as IPA’s little brother. It’s sort of like an IPA that’s been toned down a few notches. Overall, you’ll quickly recognize this beer to be refreshing and easy to drink.

    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    The pour was a mildly cloudy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that had good longevity and some light spotty lacing.

    The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

    The taste was bitter from the start with a mild sweet caramel tinge, and then became very hoppy with a big note of citrus towards the end. The flavor hung around for an average duration with a healthy hoppy citrus finish.

    Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

    Overall a nice hoppy Pale Ale with a great drinkability, this is a brew that goes down nice, smooth and easy.
