The Skinny on Summit Horizon Red Ale

I’m away from my email, but I suspect the following (lifted from Heavy Table) is also in my inbox. I’m looking forward to trying Summit’s latest beer, Horizon Red Ale:

“Summit Brewing Company announces a brand new year-round beer to be released this spring:  Horizon Red Ale – an emerging American hybrid ale that crosses the boundaries of styles.  This red-hued ale projects an intensity of complex hops – yet allows the drinker to experience the balance and character of the malt.  Floral, dry, hoppy and satisfying.  Beautifully dry hopped, Horizon Red Ale will be considered a classic.”

Beer nerds only, after this point:

Malts used: Two row pale, caramel, cara-red, wheat and black.

Hops used: Horizon, Amarillo, Cascades and Summit

Original Gravity: 13.3 degrees Plato

Bittering Units: 65 to 70

Alcohol by volume: 5.7%

Color: 20 Lovibond
