Thats right, the Pedal Pale Ale is back. Picked up a growler of this on Thursday.
A - In my pint glass, its got a cloudy orangish amber color. Similar to the Big Hop IPA. Minimal head.
S - Light floral hops and apples.
T - The taste definitely leans towards the bitter side. Similar bitterness level to the Big Hop but not as much malt sweetness. Although the hops are more of an English bitter (Goldings/Fuggles) flavor than the Centennial/Cascade you get from the Big Hop.
M - Smooth with a hint of carbonation.
D - Good beer to session. Packs a strong bitter punch for an APA.

Served from an East End growler (poured at the Map Room, albeit a bit poorly....wasn't proplerly topped off) into a pint glass. The color is a hazy dark golden color, with a nice retaining wisp of head. The smell is quite apple fruity with only the slightest bit of hop in there. The taste is quite strongly hopped with a nice Fuggles-ish hop to it, along with the same fruity/apple esters I detected in the smell, and a lingering hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is about what I'd expect. As for drinkability, this is such a nice little session beer and I'd gladly have several of these.
Well, Scott, ask and ye shall receive! I first had this one at D's, and wanted to make sure I got this one down before it left the area (from what I understand, it's flown out of the taps quite quickly). Cheers to East End for such an interesting pale ale, with a nice fruity ester that shines quite nicely. One I hope to see in future years.

I first tasted this last week for lunch with a few dogs at D's Six Paks in Swissvale, PGH, PA. On tap...Wow, a tremendous beer! This APA was on the hoppy side in taste and smell, just shy of an IPA in my opinion. The color is golden, and opaque...you can't see through this beer! I followed this with some sort of Goose Island IPA, and much preferred the Pedal Pale. This could be my new fave, ousting the Dogfish Head 60 Min IPA. The hops were strongly present, but never gave the overpowering taste of diacetyls, nor taste-destroying alcohol over-presence. I'm going to have to go back for a growler...this new brewery doesn't bottle their product yet.
