Taste Notes

Pau Hana = "Done with work" in Hawaiian. A well suited name for a beer that you want to drink when you get home from a long day at work. Or any day, for that matter! This is an American Pale ale with well balanced bitterness, pleasant tropical hop flavors and is lightly malty with toasty notes from the addition of Munich malt. Tropical nose varies greatly depending on what dry hops are used. Head retention has always been excellent due to the small addition of wheat malt.

Notes

Beer does well in competitions and can change greatly by changing the type and quantity of dry hops. Citra, Mosaic, Cascade, 7C's, Amarillo - Have all been tried by me and have worked well with this base recipe. This beer has become my house pale ale that everyone loves to drink and try the different dry hop variations.
