Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: oberon on 09-09-2007

Loaded with hops like an IPA, yet drinks like a Pale Ale, we simply decided to call it a Strong Pale Ale. The fragrant, earthy citrus laced nose is instantly detectable. Large amounts of toasted grains and high alpha Simcoe hops form a perfect union that creates the cool sensation of toasted sourdough covered with zesty grapefruit hop marmalade.

Color similar to a darker whiskey. Cloudy haze with a medium frothy head.
Smells very hoppy with a hint of apples. It tastes amazing! Wow! The hoppy flavor is perfect and its lightly carbonated, like red bull. It leaves the moth feeling refreshed and cool. Defiantly one of my favorites!
