Minutely hazy golden amber color. Hoppy, citrusy aromas and flavors of caramelized citrus, papayas and mangoes and root vegetables and romaine with vinaigrette with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, medium-length finish with notes of peppered endive and kale, melon rind, and grapefruit finish. A nice hoppy wheat ale in the style of A Little Sumpin Sumpin.

American Style Pale Ale

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.
