Brilliant amber color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of orange-mango chutney, pineapple cake, pine blossoms, and forest floor with a satiny, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a refreshing, medium-long finish with notes of frisée with lemon vinaigrette, grapefruit, peppered rapini and radishes, and vegetable chips finish. A rock solid ipa-like pale ale with invigorating bitterness.

Despite their name, pale ales tend to appear amber in color. They range from 4.5-6% in alcohol and feature crisp, full-bodied flavors and aromas. U.S. versions of pale ales are crisper and feature a higher hop profile than original English versions of the style. Pale ales have become one of the benchmarks by which craft brewers are judged in the US. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Goose Island Green Line Pale Ale, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
