Taste Notes

4/19/15: Tasted and it was good. Malty, citrus and peach juicy with a little bitterness. It will be interesting to see how the dry hop affects the beer. So far so good. 4/26/15: First pint. Liked it a lot. Heavy orange and peach taste followed by some pale ale bitterness but not too much. The malt and the flavors definitely keep the bitterness in check. Might make this one again... 5/09/15: It is what I think is a good pale ale. The scent is delicious and the taste is very good. Very fruity citrus, mango, pineapple. I have offered it out to others for their opinion and will probably get it this week. I think I am more of a simcoe fan and will add that to any future pale or India pale ales I make.

Notes

4/06/15: Strike temp: 152.3* OG: 1.066 Hop Stand: 160-145* Pitched yeast: 62* and put it in the basement where the temp is about 65*. 4/07/15: Checked the fermenter and active fermentation is taking place. 4/19/15: Dry hopped with one ounce of Amarillo and one ounce of Citra. Took a gravity reading and it measured, 1.014. 4/24/15: Cleaned keg and kegged the beer. The beer smelled great, lots of peach, pineapple and citrus. I hope it tastes as good as it smells. Set the CO2 to about 22 psi and will let it go for a couple of days and then give it a try.
