Wet Hop Whilom
West Coast-Style Pale Ale
This harvest tribute from our Resilience American ale line uses hand-selected, whole cone, locally grown Cascade from The Hopyard in Gorham, Maine. We visited the farm as the hops were picked fresh and sorted on site, using them immediately upon return to the brewery for this variation on Whilom, our West Coast Pale Ale. This special version of Whilom pours a burnt orange with a long lasting white foam cap. Grated orange zest and light herbal tea touch the nose. A faint honey sweetness rests on the palate. Orange marmalade and grapefruit pith dominate, showcasing the fresh Cascade. Mildly bitter on the finish.
