Our highly popular, award winning American Pale Ale. This ale features a glowing amber colour, robust malt base and West Coast American hops. The solid malt backbone allows us to use more of these hops, which feature a higher alpha acid content, giving a bold citrus fruit flavour and a piney character quintessential of this style of beer.
