A stacked brew that has Daisy Cutter evenly spliced with Hop Hands, Tired Hands' reigning pale ale.

American Youth has an impressive laundry list of raw materials angling for dominance inside.

22oz bottle from IAmJacksHopTongue (thanks!). No identifiable bottling date. Served in my Phish snifter.

Hazy, muted yellow with a finger and a half white head. Several streams of bubbles rise from the bottom along the sides to meet the cap of froth. The big l, fluffy retention leaves some large swaths of lacing.

Smells bready with hoppy notes of lemon and melon. Pretty nice.

Tastes of dull citrus, vague melon, slight orange peel bitterness and some bready malt. This has some nice flavor but seems to lack vibrancy.

Body is on the lighter side of medium with moderately light carbonation. Mildly bitter aftertaste with notes of orange pulp and citrus rind.

American Youth is a pretty good pale ale. I can't be sure that this bottle was fresh (it's pretty hard to be sure when a brewer does not see fit to clearly label) but an older bottle would explain the dull character that held this back. As-is I'm fine having tried this only once.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a finger of a bright white head.

Aroma is very reminiscent of Daisy Cutter. Grass, floral, earthiness, light dank, slight peach and papaya. Light pale malt sweetness.

Taste is a little more fruitier than the aroma led me to believe. Good amount of juicy peach and papaya, as well as some grapefruit. Also get a significant grassiness and floral. Nice drying on the back end with some substantial bitterness for a pale ale. Refreshing.

Mouthfeel is spot on as always with Half Acre. Smooth carbonation, creamy, and clean. Light medium body.

Has a nice mix of the more rustic grassiness and floral from Daisy Cutter with the fruitiness of HopHands. I have a lot of respect for both breweries and although this one isn't amazing, it is still a very well-done pale ale.
