The goal of this beer was to start off with a dry Irish Red Ale malt bill, but then finish it off a big burst of tropical flavors, like Paddy himself when he retired to Florida. The bittering hops are British Isles in nature, earthy and floral, but then Yakima Citra is brought in for aroma, and the infamous Amarillo dry hop for more fruity fun. To accentuate the pineapple and other tropical tones, Trappist High Gravity yeast is brought in for a big bite of Belgian oranges, and again, the other goal was quite a dry beer; Trappist attenuation, combined with an alpha-amylase saccharification will hopefully do the trick. Color was supposed to be Ruby Red, but appears to be orangeish-red in the glass, with the foam breaking into a glorious burnt orange; a Bob Ross Happy Accident. As for style, well... what's more American than Irish malt, Belgian yeast, and West Coast hops going to Disney World, hence, an American Amber Ale.
