Duffer's Pale Ale is an American-style West Coast Pale Ale. This variant is hopped with Simcoe and Chinook. Served at Al's.

A: The pale ale is a golden copper color, bright straight out of the cask. A little hazy at first, the ale settles down by the last few sips. There are a couple of stray hop cone remnants by the time I get to the bottom.

S: The nose is hoppy and strong, the simcoe and chinook adding citrusy intensity. A randy pine aroma, resiny, happens to run through the ale too. The cask flavors, hoppy galore, overrun the biscuity APA base.

T: The hoppiness is powerful, the cask and dry-hopping have left a mark. The biscuity base is light. The hops, resting atop it, aren't. Citrus and pine both share the stage, resiny and strong. Grapefruit peaks through, also aided by the cask delivery. I'm digging a number of new releases from Fegley's - the A game is here.

M: The peppery hops, embiggened by the cask(thanks Jebediah), really shine. The Simcoe adds a powerful punch that makes the APA work.
