DESCRIPTION

Covalence Juicy Pale Ale is the newest addition to our year-round lineup. It is a juicy-flavored, hazy break from some of the more conventional and bitter hops traditionally associated with IPAs. It’s sessionable and juicy flavor makes this beer a must-have for anyone looking to explore the emerging category of Hazy IPAs that have become all the rage as of late. With Chicago’s love of all-things-IPA, Covalence is sure to become a staple during the warmer months and beyond. Covalence is all about sharing but you’ll probably want to keep this beer all to yourself.

STYLE NOTES

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.
