JAMES SQUIRE HOP THIEF 8 PALE ALE
Part of a varietal series, Hop Thief 8 is a flavoursome American-style pale ale with tropical and citrus notes, and spice and floral aromas.
James Squire Hop Thief 8 Pale Ale is an American-style pale ale that over the last eight years has developed into a varietal series with the main variant being the selection of American hops that are “dry hopped” into the fermenter after the yeast is removed. We add a variety of hops (American, Australian and New Zealand) during the kettle boil, and the blend of malted barleys provides a robust malt backbone to balance out the hoppiness of 40 BU’s bitterness along with the hop oil notes of the dry hopping with Crystal and Cascade hops. The Cascade hop delivers the tropical and citrus notes with the Crystal hoop contributing spice and floral aromas. This is a most flavoursome ale at 5.0 % ABV.
