I assume this is the new more sessionable incarnation of the former Paradise Ale (retired) with a lower abv and listed as a pale ale.
This particular version according to Sean Lawson was cask conditioned with a little bit of maple syrup for fermentation and a bag of dry hops was added. Keg tapped by Sean himself and poured into pint glasses at Three Penny Taproom.
A- Slightly translucent/hazy amberish brown that almost has a cider like appearance, about a half-finger of white frothy head with nice retention that recedes to a thin layer and leaves nice layered lacing. Consistent rising carbonation. Doesn't exactly look like your typical APA, but looks appealing non-the-less.
S- Lots of dry hops, grapefruits, pine, sweet malts, maybe a hint of maple syrup, extremely well balanced.
T- Dry hops, grapefruit, pine, sweet malts, finishes with a slightly bitter lemon finish. Packed with flavor and one of the most balanced APAs I've had.
M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, extremely sessionable and smooth.
O- This was fantastic, one of the best pale ales that I've had. Easily right up there with Edward if not better. I could knock back a few pints of this without a problem. Very hoppy yet extremely well balanced with sweet malts, reminded me a little bit of the Alpine IPAs. This beer is great example of how masterful Sean Lawson is at brewing. I definitely recommend trying this out.
