Castle Danger 17-7

This is a 5.8% ABV American Pale Ale from the Castle Danger Brewery of Two Harbors, Minnesota. The name is their address, number 17 on 7th Street. The can explains that they first brewed this hopped up pale ale because they could brew it faster than an IPA and needed to meet demand.

The beer pours a light, glowing amber and copper in color. There is a tall, foamy, head of white to off-white. It leaves layers of sticky lacing down the glass. The aroma is hop forward, lots of tropical fruit, melons and citrus. The taste adds in a dank note, keeps the tropical fruits, lays on some unobtrusive caramel malt, and finishes quite dry and with a moderate bitterness. The beer drinks smooth with a soft carbonation. This is a very enjoyable pale ale.
