Notes from July 25, 2013:
Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery Calypso Pale Ale.
This one's clear, amber-hued, a little close to copper, with a sizable head, creamy tones, leaving lace. Nice.
Aroma: Good'n'hoppy, some fruity esters, for sure, mixed with herbal, earthy malt tones, as well.
Taste: Tasty tingle on the tongue starts it off, leaving a trail of bitterness on the tongue. Zesty stuff, robust, and effortlessly likable. Indistinct fruity notes, with bitter hop edge never quite quitting the palate. Medium-bodied. Long finish. Excellent consumability. Yum. Good one, this.
Here's the official yakketty-yak from the Town Hall website: Calypso, 5.6%. "Hopped exclusively with the fairly new American hop variety, Calyoso. This beer is the latest in THB's Single Hopped pale ale Showcase. The US pale ale malt backbone is augmented by Englsih Pale malt & English Premium Crystal malt. A touch of wheat malt rounds out the body. Calypsos flavor/aroma can be described as fruits with notes of pear, apple, meter lemon, lime, grapefruit, tea, melon, cherry blossoms, black pepper, orange. Yikes!
In other words, it's piney with tropical fruit notes peeking through."
