Leapbeer Review #76 Down & Easy Pale Ale by Hoyne Brewing Co.

So this is my first beer from Hoyne Brewing Company out of Victoria. They are a relative newcomer to the craft brewey scene. However the head brewmaster, Sean Hoyne, has a well established resume working at a few craft breweries in Victoria. I don’t want to go into huge detail about their beginnings, but they do have info on their site.

This beer comes in a 650ml bomber with label art of a bunch of friends tubing down a river. It really makes me wish it were summer.

It pours to a clear deep gold/light amber. There is a hint of a scent of hops. It tastes really good. It’s definitely more hopped up than most pale ales. That said the bitterness from them doesn’t linger too long in the palate. If I were to guess where on the IBU scale this would hit it’d be 30.

I will be definitely going back for more of this in the future.

#76 is Down & Easy Pale Ale by Hoyne Brewing Co.
