Madison River Brewing Company Hopper Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Madison River Brewing Company Hopper Pale Ale.
From the Madison River Brewing Company website: “This is a strong pale, yet smooth and easy on the finish. Four different barley malts lend a rich amber color and create a backdrop to showcase the distinctive citrus-like flavor and floral aroma of horizon, Centennial and cascade hops. Although this pale could almost be named an IPA with its hoppy ingredients, the body of this beer remains reasonable and avoids and overwhelming bitterness.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a light copper/amber, with a thin off-white head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Caramel and biscuit malts, citrus, floral and pine hop scents.
Taste: Lightly sweet caramel and biscuit malts balanced well with citrus, pine and grassy hop bitterness.
Overall: Refreshing and light, Madison River Brewing Company Hopper Pale Ale is a nice easy drinking beer. At 6% ABV this offering would be worth picking up again.
