Wow I was looking over my reviews and realized I never sat down and reviewed this one. I fell in love with SNPA a few years ago before I knew what a craft brew was. Just tried it at a bar/restaurant that had a few "different" beers as I saw it back then. Def a go to beer for a nice pale ale that's available and inexpensive at my local liquor stores.
12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.
A - Pours out a nice golden color with a two finger white head capping the beer to the top of the pint. Head sticks nicely and retains well.
S - A fresh citric hoppy smell along with a nice malty sweetness that lends a great balanced smell.
T - A nice subdued malty sweetness follows a nice rush of some citric and bitter hops. The beer finishes with nice bitter hops on the tongue.
M - Feels nice and slick and has a crisp carbonation.
D - A great session pale ale. Has a nice hop fix along with an interesting malt flavor coming through without anything overwhelming. Very drinkable.
Notes: One of my breakthrough beers for getting into craft beers and still one I pick up before barbecues and concerts or to have around the house.
