ControversiALE is a tribute to Simcoe hops. Simcoe hops are extremely sought after and limited, so Shortâ€™s is excited to share this unique brew with Michigan craft beer lovers every spring. The earthy, citrus and pine laced nose is instantly delectable. Large amounts of toasted grains and high alpha hops form a perfect union that creates the cool sensation of toasted sourdough covered with zesty grapefruit hop marmalade. ControversiALE has an enchantingly straightforward hop aroma, flavor, and overall intensity through ample additions of only Simcoe hops. While this beer is hopped like an IPA, it drinks like a pale ale. The light, refreshing qualities of this beer make it perfect for springtime.
