This is the first beer I made that I've truly loved. Nothing complex or pretentious about it, it's just a great, simple, drinkable beer. It's also the one beer I've gotten the most compliments on so far.

I have no idea why I named it "Hard Point Pale." For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a "hard point" is a place on a vehicle where a weapon is mounted. I know, right. Maybe I was predicting its resounding success? Maybe it was in honor of my new kegging system (of which this was the first to pour from)? Who knows. All I know is that it went fast.
