Pintail Pale Ale

Pintail is the go-to option for those in search of a good ride.

Dynamic citrus and pine flavors from Newport and Cascade hops give the beer direction, while fine pale malts provide balance. The remarkable floral aroma from dry hopping with Amarillo hops makes this beer as enjoyable as cruising down to the beach, board in tow.

When you spot a pintail headed towards the beach, odds are the surf is way up. And where this board provides balance on big waves, Pintail Pale Ale brings balance to big hops. We wanted to brew a session beer with huge hop flavors, so we created Pintail – a dry-hopped pale ale from the West Coast.

Like any dry hopped beer, climbing on top of a tank and dumping a couple hundred pounds into that tank is not the easiest of tasks.
