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.

Clear, brilliant gold topped with a huge, lumpy white head of thick froth. Sheets of lacing. Big fruity hop aromas burst from the glass: zesty grapefruit, pineapple, and pine resin over a little sugar cookie malt. Very hoppy and fresh flavor like a pale ale should have. Much like Peeper, things start out oily...juicy, zesty grapefruit, flowery hops, resin. Great APA flavor...ultra drinkable. Soft yet crisp. One little bottle to split with my wife is not enough. :-(

Color is pale gold, and a little tangerine orange. Head is bright white and foamy. Nice splotchy lace and good head retention. Aroma is loaded with juicy grapefruit. Some pine, flowers, leaves, and generally tropical. Like peeper, a mouthwatering aroma, but bigger. Taste is fruity, tropical, zesty, grapefruity, piney, and a weeee bit herbal. Mmmm. Texture is gritty-like/resiny mixed in slickness. Really good stuff.
