Calypso Pale Ale (Single Hop Series #2) – Persephone Brewing Company

Persephone Brewing out of Gibsons BC has started up a single hop series recently.  The second beer in this series is the “Calypso Pale Ale” a series where the beer recipe will only be altered at the hops level.  The beer pours an amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of earth, mild fruit and citrus.  The flavour is of earth, tea, citrus, pear, lemon, hops bitterness and a malty finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5%.  After trying the Galaxy Pale Ale it is amazing at just how different this beer is seeing it is a very similar recipe with just the hops changed.  Once again this was a great beer that showcases what the Calypso hops can produce.

    It always amazes me how much influence such a change can have. I really do need to try more of Persephone’s offerings.

    • It sure is amazing! I still need to pick up #3 and the final #4 in this series to see what they taste like. I have been very happy with the releases from Persephone Brewing so far. My favourite still has to be their Double IPA.
