Hoppy Holidays – hop bursted pale ale

I first brewed this in November 2018. The plan was to have a light and hoppy beer as a «palate cleanser» between the dark and heavy christmas ales. It worked perfectly!

This beer is indeed light and hoppy, and very, very tasty. To date, it might be the best beer I’ve ever brewed.

Note that I use Mosaic cryo hops at 5 minutes, and a hopburst pouch for dry hopping (both can be exchanged for regular pellets). The pouch is added 24 hours before bottling/kegging.

For the yeast I use a slurry of WLP001, from two previous rounds of Christmas ales brewed back to back.
