Land of the Trees

This past spring was a bumper crop for spruce tips in the Yukon. They took advantage of that to make a spruce tip gin (Spring Forest) but they still had some left over. Yukon Brewing froze them and pondered where and when they could best be used. With the holiday season upon them, they came upon the idea of using them in this American Pale Ale. The hops used in this beer bring tropical, citrus/berry notes that Yukon Brewing felt would be perfectly offset by the pungent spruce tip flavour. This beer is delightfully golden in colour and medium in body, bursting with hop and spruce flavours.
