pFriem Family Brewers Pale Ale
What the brewers say
Go beyond the pale, with aromas of berry and citrus, notes of mango, cantaloupe, and a crisp, full, finish.
What our panel thought
Nice, intensely dank hop aroma, toeing the West Coast IPA line. On the sip, dankness yields to onion/leek, with enough bready malt to carry it and soften the assertive, West Coast bitterness. Aftertaste expands into pine. Nice body. Finishes dry and clean.
What our editors thought
Decidedly dank nose mashed with citrus punch and bits of spruce and cannabis. On the sip, a confident and cogent body supports a modern hop approach, feeling classic while pushing into the future. Light, simple, characterful.
