Description 

This beer is mild yet complex in its delivery. The hop presence is noticed by subtle flavors of pineapples that meld beautifully with the slightly spicy and minty character derived from the use of Rye malt. A somewhat recently pioneered style, this Pacific Ale is delivered unfiltered to accentuate its fresh farm to glass, unprocessed, organic qualities.

This beer greets the drinker with a moderate, floral hop aroma with citrus and dank notes slipping in behind.  A light bready maltiness shines through as it warms along with a very light caramel character. The hops turn more citrusy in the flavor, primarily with a lemony note alongside light tropical fruit. A medium-light, bready malt character with a suggestion of caramel rounds out the flavor, along with a low hop bitterness that helps balance the residual sweetness from the malt. The fermentation character is fairly clean and neutral, and the beer pours a light amber with a long-lasting head and nearly opaque clarity. This is a pleasant Pale Ale that would be enjoyable all year.
