Our Cali Mountain Pale Ale is an attempt at one of the most iconic pale ales in the country: Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. This pale ale is a fairly simple recipe, cosisting of ultralight malt extract, Crystal 60L, and four hop additions. This being said, don't be fooled. The flavors blend together perfectly, creating a complex yet easy to drink homebrew.
The bittering hop additions are Magnum and Perle which provide a clean bitterness that balances the sweetness from the Crystal 60L malt perfectly. The aroma hop and dry hop additions are both Cascade, providing a citrus & floral aroma as fresh as the forests in California's mountains!
