Easygoing Extra Pale Ale coalesces lemon-wedged orange desiccation with herbal lupulin resin, pale malt sugaring and mild grassy musk to its baked bread spine, gaining light astringency by the crisp Cascade-hopped citrus-spiced finish.
On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Hoboken, beechwood-smoked barley roast deepens dark chocolate malting, black licorice licks and candied toffee nicety. Peppery citrus nip fills the backend.
