Lord Hobo’s Glorious is a 'New England Style' American Pale Ale, BJCP style 18B, that bursts from the can full of white grapefruit, pineapple, and a dank, woodsy, but pleasantly piney hop aroma. This juicy aromatic presentation is mostly hops with a mild grainy, malt character in the rear.  It fills you glass with a hazy, light straw colored liquid that is topped by a creamy and lasting white, white head. The flavor mimics the aroma with a white grapefruit juiciness that dominates, a medium high, but not harsh bitterness that lingers on the tongue to the medium dry finish and creates a bit of a pucker. The texture is creamy on the tongue in part, due to the subdued carbonation level. Clocking in at 6.5% abv this pale ale is substantial and presents with a slight alcoholic warming in the finish. However, in general Glorious is a big, juicy thirst quencher; perfect for a hot summer day.
