Red Bluff's 3 Lakes Tropical Ale is the beer most craft beer drinkers would associate with the world of the modern pale ale. As opposed to their Glasshouse Pale, where malt character leads the charge, this bright golden ale is very much about the fruity hops.
Aromas of sweet orange, mandarin and passionfruit rise from its fluffy white head, while there's ripe pineapple in the mix too, not to mention a lively sherbet component. Add in a crisp bitterness and you've got a welcoming and refreshing drop.
