Faction's 007 Pale Ale is made to highlight a single hop, Idaho 7, which until recently was known as Experimental Hop 007. This beer highlights aromas of mango, papaya, ruby red grapefruit, apricots, and hints of fresh pine tips. These aromas follow on the palate with a moderate bitterness and a backbone of lightly biscuity malt. Pair with spicy dishes like hot wings or red curry.
