Named after SF Giants pitcher, Madison Bumgarner.
On tap at the brewpub, served in a fluted pilsner glass.
Bright golden orange, rapid streams of carbonation. Thin ring of foam, fades quickly to a ring.
Wet hopped Simcoe aroma = sweet orange, honeysuckle, lightly catty in a good dank hop way. Pale malt shows up behind the hops. Could be a little more pungent, but what's there is great.
Similar citrus flavors, moderate bitterness, light bodied in the "bitter" tradition, though that's where the style traits end. Hop forward, showcasing the fresh Simcoes. Orange rind and peel, sweet and floral, intense hop flavor flashes before segueing into light pale malt breadiness. Easygoing and very drinkable. Satiates the west coast hop fix.
Serving type: on-tap
