Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

4.38/5  rDev +2.3%

Ive seen bottles of this around, but have forgotten about the name and only picked it up at a local craft dispensary after looking it up on my smartphone and seeing the rave reviews. I must say, as is mostly the case, I agree with my beer buddies here. This is a great beer. I've been on the lookout lately for lower abv beers witb full flavors that satisfy the taste buds, and I must say this one definitely fits the bill.
A: Beautiful golden tone with almost no head. Could be the pours. Everything I've been getting today has been coming with virtually no head. Better for me...more beer, but cant truly evaluate the brews characteristics. Still no complaints.
T: Slightly bitter, hoppy and all that good stuff. Tastes a lot like a refined ipa rather than a pale ale. I also detect some qualities that I cant quite put my finger on that are usually common in DIPAs. And at only 6% and easily sessionable, I'm in heaven. Regardless of ABV, this is a gem. Anything above 93 rating on BA usually is. Do try it if you have a chance. As I'm finishing this glass a waitress brought another beer along the same style to sample. I can already tell this is going to be a bumpy ride.

Pours into a standard pint a dull medium golden with a large blooming white head,maybe a little over carbonation issue.Juicy grapefruit in the nose with a little grassiness as well,not much malt profile just juicy hops.Maybe the best hop profile of any "standard" pale I have had flavor-wise,fresh grapefruit and grassy flavors with a dryer base making for just hoppy goodness.A tad sharp in the mouth but man this is just a hopped up flavor punch of an APA.Wow.

A: A slightly hazy, medium golden colored beer. This pours with two fingers of rocky/creamy off-white foam with a persistent head that leaves sticky, ropes of lacing on the glass.

S: A medium-strong pineapple, grapefruit and lemon, citrus hops aroma along with a medium grassy character from dry hop additions. Mild ale esters a light malt character biscuits.

T: A strong grapefruit hops flavor with a very strong hops bitterness. There isn't much malt backing this up just a slight sweetness with a light bready and slight caramel quality to it. The balance is very bitter and the finish is quite dry. The aftertaste is of hops bitterness and flavors of grapefruit and a touch a pith.

M: A medium bodied beer with a moderately-strong level of carbonation and a medium amount of creaminess.

O: An outstanding American Pale that is almost nothing but a showcase for strong citrus hops aromas and flavors with a very enjoyable grapefruit character.

022312 on the label.
In an imperial pint glass the beer was amber colored with a thick white head and a lot of lace.

Hoppy aroma. Grassy and piney, a little bit of citrus. Some sweet malt.

Hops at the forefront in the taste. Mostly piney and grassy hops, but there was a bit of grapefruit there too. Nice biscuity background.

This was a hoppy, but not overly hoppy, beer. Very pleasant to drink.

NYE bottle share at Proof courtesy of Masterson. Pours a nice, slightly hazy yellow orange. Healthy amount of white head with a very thick collar; both of which lasted pretty dang well. Aroma is floral, slightly sweet malt, good amount of sweet citrus. Medium-light body and same carbonation. Taste is overly floral, some pine, again with the citrusy hops. The balance in the nose is not there on the tongue.
