(Fredericton, NB) - Picaroons Traditional Ales have bottled their eleventh version of Pivot Ale. This time around they steered away from the tropical train and leaned more on the citrusy and herbal end of things. Hopped with Lemondrop, Zeus, and Warrior, this version has some herbal earthiness as well as lots of spicy peppery notes from the Zeus hops that's all blanketed by the lemony citrus and fruity notes from the Lemondrop and Warrior. This batch will start hitting the taps and shelves very soon.
