Def Leppard Pale Ale

Elysian Brewing (Seattle, WA)
"Def Leppard Pale is what happens when a mega British rock band collides with an American craft brewery. Both fanatics of their craft, Def Leppard and Elysian are excited to blend their worlds together, music and beer.
The beer was brewed to fuse the infamous malt bodies of British ales with the mysteria of Pacific Northwest hops."

Malty with a slight overripe fruitiness ... mostly citrus. Overall though smooth and drinkable. Not bad,

ABV 6%, IBU 37
Hops: Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook, bittered with Magnum
Malt: Premium 2 Row, Munich, CaraHell, and Acidulated malt
