Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
We love the piney, fruity flavors of Simcoe hops. This is a classic pale ale, single-hopped and dry-hopped with Simcoe. We cold condition this beer and give it a restrained malt profile, so the hops really pop, like flora in spring. Our friends Patrick, Jason and Brad grow these luscious hops and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

A- It pours a hazy gold/orange with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Head retention is incredible, and the lacing is acceptable.

S- Citrusy, grainy, vegetative, with a surprising amount of yeast.

T- Lemon and tangerine up front, followed by a healthy dose of grains. very light bitterness in the finish.

M- Fresh, clean, light bodied. moderate corabonation. very refreshing.

O- It's light, easy drinking, and organic, but It doesn't quite scream pale ale.

Bottle poured into glass gives a moderate sized head that is beige in color. The head looks fizzy at first, but gets more creamy looking as rocky as it settles down. Beer is golden/copper in color. Leaves moderate lacing with good retention. Aroma is mostly floral hops and caramel malt, also having citrusy hops and biscuits.

This one has a great taste for a pale ale. Very hop forward (less malty than the smell would suggest), starts with piney hops, then grapefruit, orange, and a touch of lemon. Just the right amount of light caramel malts. Has a floral, bready, and a touch piney finish. Has medium body with high carbonation and a bit of creaminess. Crisp and clean finish. This is one of the more flavorful APAs that I have had.

12 oz bottle poured into a Peak Organic glass.

A - Great look on this. Clear and bright copper body. Good head and retention.

N - Not as hoppy as I would expect. Very muted. Toasty notes.

T - Same muted character as the nose. Toasty. Lightly hoppy with a little citrus and pine. Almost like a British IPA but with American hops.

M - really good feel. Effervescent and crisp.

O - a solid drinker. I might not buy too many of these but I would be more than happy to drink a few on the boat or on the backyard.

Cheers!

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, yellow-copper coloring with a frothy, bright white head. Aromas of light, fruity sweetness with a resiny, bitter hops backbone. Flavors are roasty, with a toasted grain backbone, subtle caramel sweetness, and peppery dry hops. Well balanced and mid-bodied, with a good lacing left behind. Bitter, resniy hops aftertaste with a slightly dry, light finish. Tasty brew.
