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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Fairly hazy light golden body with a fluffy white head. Good head retention.

S: Lots of citrus hop aroma, like a fresh cut orange. It smells very nice.

T: Again lots of citrus, it has a bit of orange and grapefruit flavor with just enough bitterness. Nothing really comes through on the malt. It's very good, but I wouldn't put it as outstanding.

M: Light bodied beer, at times it felt a bit too light. Good carbonation, fairly dry but not too dry.

O: Overall it was a very nice pale ale. It wasn't very complex or anything, but it was a good tasting beer that was enjoyable to drink. In the Pale Ale realm this one felt on the lighter side of both bitterness and body. I would have liked to taste some of the malt in there, but it was still a very enjoyable beer to drink.

A - hazy gold with bright white head that stays & stays, good laces too
S - citrus, grapefruit mostly
T - tart, hopes, bitter beauty
M- citrusy finish balances the bitter, dry end makes the next sip (and glass) inevitable
O - a superior APA, ABV manageable -"wow" factor on my first glass - a great beer.

Served in a 16oz pint glass at the Pourhouse, Westmont NJ
