Sutter Buttes Flood Water Pale Ale (5% ABV / 45 IBUs): Sutter Buttes Flood Water pours a crystal clear gold color with white foam and leaves a nice lace down the side of the glass. This beer has obviously been dry-hooped with Cascade hops and has a wonderful orange peel aroma with citrus and floral bouquet. Flood Water is medium-bodied with mild carbonation. This pale ale has delicious flavors of malt and subtle orange peels with an excellently integrated hops bitterness. Flood Water has a dry finish with lingering hops bitterness and shadows of orange peels. This is an outstanding session beer that can flood my glass any day!
