Description 

A pale ale so strong some might even think its borderline IPA. Strong notes of grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, and stone fruit. This beer is as complex as it is delicious.

Vantucky Pale Ale by Heathen Brewing was judged as an American IPA (BJCP Cat. 21A) and had a wonderful earthy upfront hop aroma blended with a low crackery malt with a hint of toast and caramel behind. Light esters of pear and cherry are blended throughout. It was a beautiful golden color with a huge rich off-white head of fine bubbles that were mousse-like and was lightly hazy. The aroma was followed by an upfront earthy hop flavor blended with a low crackery malt and followed immediately with intense bitterness that lingers extensively. It had a medium-full body, was lightly warming and had a very drying bitterness. This beer is for those that love intensely hoppy beers with lingering bitterness. Overall a cleanly made beer that would go great with something like pizza or other food that would have the acidity to balance the bitterness in this beer.
