Offshoot Beer Co. has been staying in the IPA and DIPA lanes until now… “…our first ever pale ale is HERE. Clear your mind with this crisp West Coast pale ale that celebrates floral, tropical, and citrus hop notes. Loaded up with the big three— Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra — Drifting is an ode to classic, drinkable hoppy beers.”

Double Citra

You know El Segundo Brewing, they had to make “Citra…Just Citra-ier.”

They went and double dry-hopped their American Pale Ale so that you can try both to see what DDH does to the beer and to test how much you like the Citra hop

Two Bright

Last week, Los Angeles Ale Works released two pale ales with artwork by Brady Smith.

Here are the beer details straight from the brewery:
Cannonball Kid (Juicy Pale Ale 6.0%) features El Dorado and Cascade hops. Resinous notes of grapefruit and mango gummy bears. 
 Pugapalooza (Pale Ale 6.0%sports Sabro, Sultana, and El Dorado hops to lead you down the road to tropical notes of guava and passionfruit.

Featured Review – Partake Pale Ale

Next up in the five part series of reviews of Partake Brewing is the Pale Ale. Check out the first review of the Blonde Ale which was an inauspicious start to the five beer reviews.

The Pale Ale is much better. Firstly, the aroma pops off with light grassy and pine notes. The body is a little watery but has none of the weird “underdone” notes that the Blonde had. There is a refreshing smack of bitterness here and it is quite nice. A bit one dimensional but that dimension is solid.

In Bloom

If you are in the Inglewood area today, you might want to check out Three Weavers and their latest Friday / Brewery Only release. “Yakima Bloom is a nod to the hard working hop growers of the Northern Hemisphere – our fresh hop pale ale is made with freshly picked Citra hops and is perfect for celebrating the end of the harvest season.” We don’t get the level of fresh hop beers that Oregon and Washington get so, hop on it.
