Driftwood Brewery has a new look and a new Pale Ale. Focusing on local flavour and local ingredients the New Growth Pale Ale takes local ingredients into a truly BC beer. Pouring from the new look bomber bottle this beer appears as a light, golden, slightly amber colour this pale ale is topped with a thick fingers worth of lightly packed, lacing head. From this moderate crown of head comes a mid-hopped, malty and lightly caramelized pale ale. West Coast, piney hops add a delicious, fruity tone to the profile while letting the malt come through. The flavour is crisp and a nice combination between west coast flavour and traditional english style pale ales. Not trending to far to either side both bittering and flavouring hopse add a delicious flavour while malt tones remain present through the entire profile. This is a delicious BC Pale Ale and is fantastic to see a tribute to local shine through from Driftwood Brewery.
