Survivor Pale Ale

Our Family and Friends have been watching and betting on the Survivor winners for years. This is the beer we drink on this occasion Two kegs end up empty before each season is over. A medium body Pale Ale with late hops and an aroma that doesn't quit. This recipe survives in repeat rotation at my house.
