Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured bottle into tulip glass

A: golden and hazy, about half inch of white head

S: smells a little of dried fruit, spice maybe some hay

T: tastes a tad spicy, herbal, a little fruit, dry. Tastes a little but sour/bitter, could be from the type of hops used, but I'm a little n00b to be staying types of good used.

M: light and crisp, but good smooth mouthfeel

Overall: a good farmhouse ale. It tastes like what it was meant to be.
