Foothills Brewing Hop of the month Topaz American Pale Ale

t’s another round of Foothills Brewing Hop of the Month. This Month April is Topaz American Pale Ale, 7.2% ABV and an IBU of 54. The Australian Topaz hop was developed in the 1980’s and boasts a worldly mélange of English, continental European and North American roots. Australian hops are quite popular with beer brewers and drinkers. Topaz American Pale Ale pours a light hazy orange color with a massive tower of bight white that so slow to disappear, but it does leave behind lots of thick lacing behind. The aroma is quite pungent with lemon aroma with hints of faint orange subtle grapefruit with a nice spice note. This pale ale has one heck of a refreshing taste of lemony goodness with just the right amount of bitter twang to it that is great on the old taste buds. I did get a little spice on the end with some nice bitter flavor. This Topaz American Pale Ale finish with a little bitter lemon citrus flavor mixed with hints of small grapefruit. The after taste is pretty much the same as the finish but with some spice on it. I never have a bad beer from Foothills Brewing, so this April Hop of the Month Topaz American Pale Ale is A+, and I highly recommend having this. It is perfectly balanced pale ale with just the right amount of fruitiness and bitter flavors, and refreshing.  This is the best one of the series so far. If you haven’t had any in this Hop of the Month series the try them, ALL OF THEM! This is a great beer as the rest are! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
