Hops for IPA haters

Orange Blossom Blonde Ale, Yolo Brewing Co

Here's a palatable, lightly hopped beer for IPA haters like me: Yolo Brewing Co.'s Orange Blossom Blonde Ale. It pours a bright orange color in the glass, and its semisweet honey-orange front with a slightly biting tail makes it a balanced beer for people who have a weak tolerance for high-bitterness beers. Try a sample at Yolo Brew's tasting room—or better yet, grab a whole pint at Broderick Roadhouse for $6, and pair it with a delicious burger and banh mi fries.
