Is pacific ale truly a style? Does it matter? Did Scott Hastings strictly cling to rigid form with his and Fran’s electrifying take on the paso doble? Go on, give the people what they want. This is, after all, pacific ale, not the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix.
Bravo Brewhouse’s Two To Tango Pacific Ale is, if nothing else, a crowd pleaser. In the glass it’s light and straw-like with a slight cloudy haze. It’s undeniably crisp and quenching but with enough bitterness and yeastiness in tow to keep it from being one-dimensional. Of course, it’s noticeably and wonderfully aromatic with enough late-addition Galaxy to bring out the passionfruit, mango and tropical fruits. Highly approachable, this is a beer that doesn’t trip over its left foot.
