Golden color with a solid head. Aroma is weighted heavily towards citrusy west coast hops, although there is a bit of malt balance. Features medium carbonation and an impressive hop bitterness (esp for a pale) that quickly overwhelms any malt present. Crisp and delicious, this is the ultimate session beer.
The quintessential example of an APA, SNPA is simple yet brilliant, and one of the beers that got me into craft beer in general. The perfect pale ale for a hophead as well as a great stepping stone to the world of hoppy beers.

love this stuff - this is my "go to" - and honestly, it tastes even better from the can. bold, beautiful color, maintains its head - can conditioned - I'm sold. and when the supermarket runs the price special for 12, I'm investing in the future. a truly character laden pale (love the pine and evergreen influence) that has legs - keep up the great work, SN !
