This was the second beer of the tasting. I’ve had this beer before, when I really didn’t know a lot about beer. I remember enjoying the grapefruit flavor. So, I was definitely excited to try this again, now that I have a few other pale ales to compare it to.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: According to the Troegs website, “Tröegs Pale Ale pairs nicely with Mediterranean foods, starches and anything with fresh herbs. The floral hop character also blends with cheesy dishes like pizza, pasta and dips.”
Random: I liked the brew so much that I bought the shirt at the brewery (it also helps that the shirt is pretty cool).
This poured with a one-finger white head that left mild lacing on the glass. The body is a straw yellow color with mild carbonation visible. On the nose, there is definitely grapefruit. Ahh, this is the brew that I remember. On the taste, I get the same grapefruit in the nose. The taste is almost floral. The mild carbonation complements the taste. This is a damn tasty brew. The finish also lingers with grapefruit being the dominant flavor. This is a great everyday beer and blows Yards’s Pale Ale out of the water. Definitely try this brew.
