Hi-Wire Brewing Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale

I picked up Hi-Wire Brewing Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale, 4.45% ABV from Brawley’s Beverage 4620 Park Rd, through a recommendation. This bottle shop is not so far from Park Rd Shopping Center and has a good selection of beer both on draught and in bottles. Hi-Wire in Ashville is relatively new to the barrel aging and souring process. This Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale is dry-hopped with Hallertau, Blanc & Citra hops then goes into French oak white wine barrels and bottle conditioned with Saccahromyces and Brettanomyces for two months. Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale pours a yellow gold color with a three finger white head that fades into half finger of foam that leaves behind nice decent lacing. Aroma is slightly spiced with a mellow earthy hop note and a nice orange pineapple scent that draws you into a taste of slightly spiced orange with some pineapple and mellow bitter earthy notes. Mouth feel is full with a nice spiced hoppy fruit finish and a lingering fruited bitter after taste that is slightly yeasty. This Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale has a lot going on and it surprisingly good, so it’s getting an A+. It is an easy drinker with a great mixture/balance of flavors making for on interestingly good beer. The bottle that Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale is in is quite nice looking, I think you can bring this beer as gift to any dinner party. I recommend Hi-Wire Brewing Dry-Hopped Brett Pale Ale, but it is a little higher in price, $15.00 for 1 pint 9.4 fluid ounces, total of 25 ounces. But it’s worth it. Thanks again to Brawley Beverages! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
