Eureka Pale Ale (Single Hop Series #3) – Persephone Brewing Company


Persephone Brewing out of Gibsons BC has started up a single hop series recently.  The third beer in this series is the “Eureka Pale Ale” a series where the beer recipe will only be altered at the hops level.  I can not find any information on Eureka hops so I can not look up what to expect from this hop.  The beer pours an orange copper colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of floral hops, tropical and sweet malts.  The flavour is of earth, caramel, tropical fruit, orange, sweetness, pine, mild bitterness and some resin in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5%.  Once again this was a great pale ale with lots of flavour.

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.
