Brewed by Port City Brewing Co

American Pale Ale5.5% ABV35 IBU

Essential Pale Ale is a deep golden color with bright aromas of summer stone fruits that leap forth from the glass. Our unique hop-forward twist on an American Pale Ale is the tantalizing peach and apricot flavors that come from our special blend of American hops, which are dry hopped using our patent pending HOPZOOKA®.

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.
