New Your-Round Beer Release: Early Bird Hoppy Pale Ale
Earlier this year we starting experimenting with some new to us hop varieties—El Dorado and Azzaca—in a beer we were calling Test Flight. Test Flight took on many forms over the last year and we learned a ton about these varieties and how best to use them. The El Dorado ended up in our year-round New Noise IPA and the Azacca ended up mostly in a new pale we're calling Early Bird Pale Ale.
Brewed with Centennial, Columbus, Amarillo and Azacca hops, it jumps out of the glass with notes of tropic fruit, dank pineapple and candied orange in a sessionable 5% ABV. After we dial in the recipe a touch more, we'll release it in bottles for another year-round bottled beer!
