Madison River Hopper Pale Ale
Written by Britton
I’m glad my beer of the month club membership is shipped in an unmarked box. I was on vacation last week and when I got home this month’s beer delivery was waiting for me by the front door. I’m not sure how long it had been there but I’m glad a neighborhood kid didn’t steal it for some free beer.
After a vacation, I always feel like I need another vacation before I go back to work. The unpacking, laundry, cleaning that is required after a trip is not something I look forward to. So, to take a break from unpacking I decided to indulge in one of my new beers. I decided to go with a refreshing pale ale from Madison River Brewing Co.
It poured a golden, orange color. It was very pleasing to the eye. The pillowy head quickly dissipated. The scent was of sweet malts, hops, and a good amount of citrus. The taste is very refreshing. The carbonation hits you at first and then finishes quite smooth and clean with a nice amount of hops. It is a good balance of flowery hops and fruity malts. The ABV isn’t anywhere on the bottle but is on their website.
This beer is a solid pale ale. It is very refreshing and enjoyable on a hot, summer day.
