Pacific Gem Pale Ale

New Zealand Pacific Gem hops are featured in this brew. They are a high alpha variety at 13.3% alpha acid with both bittering and aroma properties. The brew was dry hopped with 8 pounds of Pacific Gem allowing their aroma to be fully expressed. The base beer is a standard golden ale hopped to a moderate 30 IBU’s and then dry hopped. The final profile has hints of berries, both blackberry and strawberry, along with some piney and citrus notes. Very refreshing and drinkable with a nice balance between malt and hops.
