SixTwelve Brewing Palm Trees & Power Lines

Style
West Coast Pale Ale
ABV
5.5%

The warmer months tend to bring with them an influx of hoppier, easier drinking beers which, in turn, can see the market flooded with a heap of beers similar in nature. So, with this West Coast Pale Ale, SixTwelve Brewing have aimed to stand out from the crowd. Palm Trees & Power Lines – a reference to California – is unique in many ways.

The malt bill starts out pretty normally with some pale, carapils and wheat before adding light Munich, dark Munich and Midnight Wheat, specialty malts designed to allow the Chinook, El Dorado and Centennial hops to punch through nicely along while contributing some additional malt flavours to the ride.

Despite the presence of these darker malts, it still pours a light orange, suggesting they were added judiciously, while you'll find the familiar West Coast elements: pine and resin along with some orange citrus and touch of the floral. There's a bready spine with a smidgeon of caramel working well with that pine and resin to taste, with a touch of sweetness through the palate meeting a lick of bitterness at the end.
