From The Brewery
When we sat down to collaborate on this beer, we knew we had to create something extraordinary. After sampling a wide array of great beers, we hit upon an idea: use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malted barley North America has to offer, and crystal filtered artesian water. Thus creating this classic American style pale ale.
Appearance: I poured this golden orange ale into my Duvel tulip glass; it had a thin white head, that didn’t stay around for long.
Smell: Light smelling; a little citrus and malts with a bit of sweetness.
Taste: A balance of hops and toasted malts (60/40). Not an over the top hop beer like many pale ales; more flavors start coming out as it warms, such as a bit more fruit such as apricot and grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, higher carbonation. A little sticky, but not too much.
Notes: A good pale ale; as usual, I am a bigger fan of their IPA and 2XIPA. A great stepping stone beer into the craft beer world; very approachable.
