Quick Draw Blood Orange Pale Ale
This brew boasts orange and citrus tones with a grain bill providing just a touch of sweetness. Properly balanced with a fresh, crisp pop of hops, this brew is versatile, tasty, and quick on the draw!
This brew has been one of our favorites for a long time, and always a delicious way to start out Spring. The brightness of the blood orange with the delicious hop and malt structure really makes the entire package greater than the sum of its parts.
This beer is packed with citrus and fruity tones. Look to have a great meal featuring grilled chicken tostadas with mango salsa and black beans. Your cheese plate will be a blast with some serious contrast featuring Gorgonzola and this brew. For dessert options, grilled peaches with creme fraiche and a honey drizzle will finish your meal with a flourish.
American Pale Ale
Moderate to high hop flavor, typically showing an American or New World hop character (citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc.). Low to moderate clean grainy-malt character supports the hop presentation, and may optionally show small amounts of specialty malt character (bready, toasty, biscuity). The balance is typically towards the late hops and bitterness, but the malt presence should be supportive, not distracting. Caramel flavors are often absent or fairly restrained (but are acceptable as long as they don’t clash with the hops). Fruity yeast esters can be moderate to none, although many hop varieties are quite fruity. Moderate to high hop bitterness with a medium to dry finish. Hop flavor and bitterness often lingers into the finish, but the aftertaste should generally be clean and not harsh. Dry hopping (if used) may add grassy notes, although this character should not be excessive.
