    Ballast Point, Grunion Pale Ale

    Grunion
    Pale Ale

    A new Pale Ale where hops run the show.
    Our Grunion Pale Ale wasn’t born on a beach, but in a backyard.  Originating from an employee-only home brew contest, this award-winning hoppy pale ale is named after the tiny local fish known for late night frolics on shore.  A pair of new hop varieties lend strong yet balanced summer melon aromas and herbal flavors, while a soft caramel malt sweetness holds it all together.

    An International Pale Ale with a strong hop flavor from the use of two new hop varieties, American Mosaic & Calypso. Both hops give off pungent summer fruit aromas and flavors with hints of pineapple, ripe cantaloupe, basil, cherry blossoms, spruce & grapefruit. The underlying nutty malt base has hints of toasted bagel and fresh crepes from the use of Marris Otter barley and Carapils malt. Color is deep golden to a light orange.
