Session Pale Ale, dry hopped and unfiltered. A refreshing beer bursting with grassy aromas and flavors of peach and nectarine – this extra pale ale is less malty than a traditional pale ale to allow the hops to take center stage.



Pours a pale orange (pale ale, get it?) and has a nice head.  The resins are nice too, they seem to hang to the sides of the glass.


Hops, hits of tangerine/citrus.


Another beer from Upstate that drinks more bitter than it’s IBU.  This one only comes in at 44, but has a nice hop that stays on your tongue.


Another great offering from Upstate Brewing, a “session” pale ale at 4.6% that drinks stronger than that — doesn’t feel light at all, but is still crushable.


4.5 out of 5

Until the next beer:


Beer God
