S.M.A.S.H. Series

During the spring and summer of 2015, we’re making a series of four Single Hop And Single Malt beers. Each one showcasing a different variety of hop paired with a grain bill with just a single malt variety.

Simcoe S.M.A.S.H.

Style: Pale Ale

Strength: 4.8% a.b.v.

Tasting Notes: The last in our S.M.A.S.H. series (Single Malt And Single Hop) of pale ales. This one is brewed with an Irish base malt. Clean and refreshing with Simcoe hops adding a piney, zesty edge to the beer.

Grain: Propino Pale Ale

Hops: Simcoe

Brewed: June 2015

Vic Secret S.M.A.S.H.

Style: Pale Ale

Strength: 4.8% a.b.v.

Tasting Notes: This single malt and single hop pale ale showcases the Australian hop Vic Secret. Generous dry hopping provides a dominant tropical fruit aroma with notes of pineapple and passion-fruit along with hints of pine. Vienna malt contributes a sweeter malty character with a subtle toasty character.

Equinox S.M.A.S.H.

Tasting Notes: A single malt and single hop pale ale brewed with Maris Otter barley which provides a clean, light toasty flavour.

The intensely aromatic Equinox hops are added at 4 stages during the boil and again as a dry hop addition and contributes a unique herbal, resinous aroma and flavours or juicy papaya and grapefruit zest.

Centennial S.M.A.S.H.
