Four Peaks Pitchfork American Pale Ale

American Pale Ale6.0% ABV21 IBU

This is our new take on the classic American style Pale Ale. Traditionally, hops are added throughout the 90 minute boil time to impart bitterness, flavor and aroma. Recently, a handful of adventurous brewers have come up with a technique called hop-bursting, where the vast majority of the hop load is added within the last ten minutes of the boil. This produces a beer that has an enhanced hop flavor and aroma with a smoother bitterness. We also spread the hop-burst through the hop-back and, of course, to the dry hop. We used a few newer hop varieties in Pitchfork: Melon, Mandarina, and Eureka. Which impart (not surprisingly) flavors and aromas of fresh melon, orange, and pine. We also added a good portion of Centennial hops for a more traditional touch. The malt profile is a robust, caramel forward, classic pale ale.
