New Helvetia 916 Pale

This special summer beer was brewed for our growler club members. (916) is an Uber hopped American pale ale, made with 25 hop additions. This beer is a re-imagination and reinvention of our much fabled, award winning Colonial Pale Ale. Buckets of Centennial, Cascade, Zythos, El Dorado and Fuggle went into this beer, a celebration of the hop growing prowess of the Sacramento region. This beer is aromatic and deeply hoppy without being to bitter; massive late hop additions created a mass of green goo on the floor of our kettle and a beer that wallops you from a mile away with its intense hop aroma. Its nose is full of deep earthy spice notes, with overtones of pear and fresh stone fruit.
