Combining CCB’s expertise with tropical fruit flavors and Boulevard’s love of pale ales, Collaboration No. 5 – Tropical Pale Ale begins with a base of soft pilsner malt layered with Maris Otter, Munich and caramel malts. Huge late hopping with a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Lemondrop and Azacca lends bright flavors of mango, pear, blueberry and citrus to a pale ale featuring slightly toasted biscuit and caramel/toffee notes. Infused with freshly sliced grapefruit at the conclusion of the boil, our tropical pale ale is briefly aged on passion fruit and grapefruit at the end of fermentation resulting in a refreshing acidity and tropical fruit flavor and aroma. At 7.3 ABV and 55 IBUs, Collaboration No. 5 – Tropical Pale Ale finishes slightly tart with bright citrus character from dry-hopping with Lemondrop, Azacca and Pacific Jade hops.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Pours clear golden amber with a fairly thick buff head. Aroma has a core of fresh malt and a firm overtone of resiny hops, plus a fruity underpinning that is strongly citrus. Malt and hops balance better in the scrumptious flavor, while the fruity note stays in the background. Orange, grapefruit, even a little pear come through. Mouthfeel has average body and fizz, but this is the brew’s weakest point. So what - it goes down well. Get your tropical on.

    A heavy pale ale, with big tropical notes in the aroma and flavor. Has an unfiltered light to medium orange appearance. Flavors of mango, apricot, citrus, and a nice hop variety. Quite complex for a pale ale but that's what you'd expect with a collaboration with Cigar City. Pricey beer, but worth the try...and the buzz!
