Temporal PurgatoryTemporal Purgatory
Notes: Chinook and Mosaic hops hold your tongue accountable for your worldly sins in our fiendishly vengeful session pale ale. The moment between each sip may be temporary, but feels like its own brief purgatory.

Pours a dark deep orange color. Clear and crisp to the eye. Frothy white head dissipates leaving a ring of white foam along the outside of the beer.

Smell has aromas of orange, pine, orange zest, sap, pine needles, and some mango. In spite of the fruity aromas, the general aura is an earthy tone.

The most striking thing about the flavor is how strong and complex it is for an APA. Initially you are hit with a burst of orange, orange zest, pine, sap, grass and lots of bitterness. All up front and it just kind of smacks you in the mouth. As that bitterness lingers you then get a clear malt backbone that shines through. White bread notes come out as the malt backbone starts to mellow out the bitterness. Lovely flavor overall - very earthy and piney.

Feel is light, yet flavorful. Spot on carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall a really nice APA. Incredibly rich flavors for an APA. I'll be happy to have this one again.

“Session Pale Ale” is an unnecessarily and inaccurately denigrative designation for this 5.90 ABV beer, as traditional Pale Ales are often sessionable. Why can’t we just call this a very good “English Pale Ale”?
