When you brew as much as we do, sometimes we get tired of telling the yeast what to do. For Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale, we pitch the yeast cold, turn off the temperature control, and let the yeast do it's thing. To our delight, it spat out the sweet scent of juicy fruit wafting from a frothy, white mane. Brewed only with grain and sugar unencumbered by the heat of the kiln, we create a hazy, golden body. Apex Predator gets its teeth from a generous Crystal dry-hopping that completes the dry finish with a fruity bite. Pounce on the opportunity to let it part your lips and you may find yourself at the top of the food chain.

A beautiful looking, interesting tasting beer. Light, crisp, tart. As I move through the four-pack and compare it to other farmhouse ales, the beer grows on me. It's a littel lighter than I'd like and could pack a bit more punch, but it strike me as a great thirst quencheer and a beer I'll be revisiting when then weather heats up.
