DESCRIPTION

Heliotropic Rye Pale Ale blossomed one year on a fresh spring day. This bright and beautiful beer smacks you in the nose with pineapple, grapefruit and hints of resin from the massive amounts of Comet hops we throw in, and Comet is the only hop used in this beer. Brewed with generous amounts of wheat and rye, producing a beer with a dense mouthfeel and spicy malt flavor. Turn your face to the sun and follow this beer into the summer.

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.
