San Diego Pale Ale5.5% ABV38 IBU

The Story
Growing up on the streets of Boston, on the south side, our fa-ther’s childhood friend was nicknamed “Sailhead” for his rather large ears. Yes, his last name was Murphy. Spending many a child’s summer, Dad spoke of him often reminiscing about those long hot summer days full of fun and mischief. So we made this beer for those hot summer days, perfect for quenching your thirst at the local pub or perhaps after a sail, or with your friends on a beach watching a sunset.

Cicerone Notes
A West Coast Pale Ale using Dry English Ale yeast. Significantly hop forward, but not quite an India Pale Ale. Dry, crisp, clean and refreshing, this pale ale delights the palette with citrus and grapefruit floral notes. A rich pale malt flavor is accented with a touch of fruity aromas.

Food Pairing: Serve in a 16oz Munich, Tulip or Pint/Nonic glass between 45-55 degrees F.
Pairs well with Brick, Edam, Monterey, Jack and Pepper Jack cheeses, Italian dishes, salads, chicken dishes, grilled foods, fish, shellfish and spicy foods.

When it came to creating Ripper, we drew inspiration from the coastal surf cultures of SoCal and Oz. Sourcing classic Cascade from the Pacific Northwest and Australian Galaxy hops from…yes…Australia, we made a beer both lovers of frothy peaks and hoppy green buds will be stoked about. At the same time, we stayed true to our San Diego roots by pushing the hop boundaries of this style. While some might think it lingers on an edge far closer to an IPA, with all the dry-hop flavor and aroma, it’s actually right in line with the current-day interpretation of a West Coast pale. Ours just so happens to have an Aussie accent that’s cascading with a juicy amount of grapefruit and passion fruit hoppiness.
