New England’s pale ale is a something of a hybrid, being based on the American form of the style but loaded up predominantly with Australian ingredients. Taken together they form a beer that’s not one of those massively aggressive pale ales which border on being an IPA but one with a more understated nature that simply shoots for balance and fairly well delivers it.
The Aussie malt backbone lays the foundation upon which the four varieties of hops can team up and do their thing; the grapefruit and citrus fruitiness of the Galaxy and Summer duo pairs neatly with some of the pine and floral elements of Ella and Cascade. The beer is adorned with a golden glow that almost beckons you in to discover that its true beauty comes from the inside.
