Steel Sax, first brewed under the shadows of the Bethlehem Steel Stacks, is an American Pale Ale showcasing the best aspects of fruit forward, aromatic hops. We envision this beer as a hazy and dare we say…juicy pale ale. Now when we think juicy we think of a full, fat saxophone tone. Naturally, we chose the endlessly fruity El Dorado and Mosaic to take center stage and dance upon the drinker’s taste buds while playing notes of papaya, tangerine, and berry poetry. We’ve layered these hops with new-age German varietals Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon in order to round out the overall hop profile. We add these hop-blasts at various stages during the brewing process to allow the aromas and flavors to express themselves in a multitude of intonations. The ripe peach and tangerine flavors upfront give way to a brief dankness, blending together in beautiful harmony. Remnants of melon, papaya, and pine flesh wash away with the dry finish as you smack your lips, reaching for another pull of that glass. It’s refined yet groovy, it’s aggressive yet tempered, it’s the Steel Sax.
