Hoptical Illusion Almost Pale Ale is the beer that reminds us of why we started a microbrewery. The Flying Monkeys riffon the normal pale ale is to dry hop the bejeezus out of this beer with a whompin' mess of citrusy Amarillo and Cascade hops. The style is APA or Almost Pale Ale. To some, APA stands for American Pale Ale or American Psychological Association, but we don't really fit in either of those; so Almost Pale Ale might need some explaining. Hoptical Illusion approaches the charcteristics of a pale ale but takes a quick u-turn at the end. At 32 IBUs versus 22 and way up for English Pale Ales, we're hoppier than most Ontario beers, but not so crazy that you can't stomach more than one or must surrender the enamel off your teeth.
