Hazy Pale Ale | 500ml | ABV 5.0%

子ども時代の、長いながい夏休み。
目を閉じれば、懐かしいあの頃の思い出が蘇ってくる。
そんな感覚になったことは、誰しもあるよね?

壁当てや素振りをすれば、家の裏庭は大きな球場にたちまち大変身。
特大のホームランに大歓声が巻き起こり、ダイヤモンドをゆっくり一周。
……そんな妄想に想いを馳せる、かつての野球少年Hop Dude。

今回は、WCB初めてのVerdant(バーダント)酵母を使用して醸造。
パイナップルやマスカットのような瑞々しくフレッシュな柑橘感。トロピカルなフレーバーにドライな飲み口で甘さは控えめ。
時間が経つにつれ、白桃やアプリコットみたいなアロマもちらっと顔出し。イイ感じのほろ苦さとスッキリ感は、この暑い夏がよく似合う。

積み上げた練習が功を奏してか、
かつて少年だった彼の手にはいつからか、バットがグラスに。。。
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Had that big backyard. Or the field on the side of the house. Or if you lived in the big city, you were out on the street or down at the park. Boy were we spoiled. The adolescent Japanese baseball fantasy wouldn't be complete without the kid out in the street or on the gravel sandlot, tank top-clad & super tan, going ball-on-a-string until 9pm swing after methodical swing. In his mind--the lights, the cameras (more now than ever before), the game-winning run in scoring position (kinda makes you wonder if kids these days are thinking about how they'll diatribe up the post-game celebrations on TikTok, cuz we def didn't have that luxury/vice..but I digress). Simply put Backyard Legend is a hazy born for the summer. Not that scalding hot blacktop heat haze, no. The kind you rip down with a sausage or brisket off the BBQ before your victory lap. Early evening stadium lights, the crowds are packed in now. The ever-so-slightly cool breeze and 5.0% dry fruity goodness are here to take you to the promised land. If beer is a drink for the "now", then we cordiallly invite you to come hang out in our Backyard. And bring your glove, btw.

Nah. We ain't going down without a fight. Our Alchemist went ring bling and literally stirred the pot - his latest foray into the crazy corners of his mind (Hazyland?) punching out new hop combos like it's Friday at 5pm. Strata, Sultana and Sabro turned out to be a stellar combination, tropical delight with a touch of that coconut goodness on the backend, body is big but with enough sweetness to keep you coming back for more. Will this be enough to stop the Nemesis and his Gateway? Probably not. Summer climaxes are upon us and things are about to get very interesting for our Hop Heroes.
