Beer #144 - Pale Ale / Duncans
Beer #144 - W/C 27 November 2017
BEER // This Pale Ale was the first beer George Duncan brewed commercially and has a special place in his heart. It is an homage to tropical, light bodied new world pale ales and is extremely drinkable. For this Beer Jerk batch, he altered the recipe to use Equinox hops. This new hop variety was developed in Washington state and released in 2014. Equinox has quickly gained fans with its aroma and flavour notes of lemon and lime citrus, fruits like papaya and apple as well as green peppers and herbs. This beer is quite beautifully balanced with a lot of nuances, we reckon it would take an extremely long time to get bored of.
