Notes:If you like Pale Ales, this beer is a must brew. Depending on your brew house efficiency, the original gravity should be right about 1.05 – 1.053 and your ABV should land right around the 5% mark. After a little conditioning the beer comes out wonderfully clear, has an incredible hoppy aroma, mild hop bitterness and fantastic malty profile. Everyone that I have shared this beer with raves about it and wants more. If you can find them, I recommend dry hopping with whole hops.
