Not all American-Style Strong Pale Ales are created equal. This creation by Jarrod Larsen, award-winning brewer at Tustin Brewing Company, is an aromatic experience for your senses.
Chinook, Amarillo, and Galaxy hops in the boil and dry-hopped with a blend of Galaxy, Amarillo, and Citra... Twice! And it shows.
Gold in color, a rich white cap, and a slight veil over it.
The nose is where the spirit shines. Aromas of underripe melon and peaches, some orange rind, white grape, and a grassy character to hold it all together.
The palate resembles the nose with the addition of an earthy character and a slight bready note in the background. Bitter from beginning to end with all the fruit layers lingering on the finish.
The structure is medium-light bodied, fairly well attenuated, and medium carbonation. 6%ABV, 50 IBU's, and tasty. Get some while it lasts!
