On tap

A pale ale for hop heads. Truly West Coast. Tropical-pineapple, some citrus, slight floral. Woody, earthy, grassy and lots of pine. Soft danky bitterness makes this brew very drinkable. Dry pale malts, cracker like. Light bodied. Refreshing. Hops are on full display here. I love dry hopped ales. A great pale ale, IMO. Get it on tap if you can. I imagine some of the hop freshness and nuances are lost sitting in the bottle.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a frothy off white head that laces nicely.

S: Citrus hops, a bit grassy, with a little bready malt.

T: Citrus hops, lime grapefruit and orange peel, a little grassy, some floral bitterness, nicely balanced with a malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Very drinkable pale ale. Not overwhelmingly bitter or sweet with a very agreeable hop profile.
