What the brewers say

A pale ale featuring our selected lots of 2020 Strata.

What our panel thought

Pine-forest hops in the nose, with bread-crust-malt highlights. In the flavor, medium-firm pine-herbal bitterness, more focused on the hops, with some citrus bitterness. That bitterness offers a slow, smooth build that persists into the thoughtful finish. Dry and approachable.

What our editors thought

Peach and apricot nose with a touch of herbal spice—a decidedly modern approach. Light and breezy sip, with a present but tightly controlled bitterness playing against gentle pale-malt sweetness. Not a retro pale ale, but firmly aimed at the future.
