EB 002-1 West Coast Pale Ale

Dry hopping with a classic American West Coast Pale Ale:

An American Pale Ale by Young’s reportedly ‘clone’ of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Liquid Malt Extract & 600g Brewing sugar in our 23 litre fermenter with US West Coast Beer Yeast.

  • Makes 40 pints at approx 5.6% ABV
  • APA pours a light copper with a fluffy white head, initial caramel and biscuit aromas give way to a heavy floral and citrus note inviting a sip
  • Tremendous citrus, floral and pine character in both the Aroma and also the flavour
  • Beautiful malt that has lovely caramel and biscuit tones to support two powerhouse American hops: Columbus and Centennial
  • This combination of hops along with a clean yeast character are the building blocks to creating a fantastic American Pale Ale
