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.

Tap: Poured a light hazy amber color ale with a small foamy head with good retention. Aroma consists of citrus notes with some floral hoppy notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by some citrus notes with some floral hoppy notes and some citrus notes with lightly sweet non-descript malt base. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really like the take on this one with nice floral aroma notes and limited bitterness.

Recently acquired in a BIF from Cuzco. 500ml bottle served in a Hill Farmstead win glass. Bottled 4/16/13.

A: Pours a semi hazy golden yellow color with some orange highlights. A thick and bubbly head forms on the pour. The retention is off the charts (similar to my bottle lunch). It creates a crater filled pillow of head and thick, sticky lace. Just a beautiful looking beer.

S: Sweet cracker malts mixed with some stone fruit and sweet grass. Lightly floral as well.

T: Lightly lemony with some grassy undertones. Some stone fruit with some white bread malts. Nicely sweetened on the finished with a very mild bitterness that just lingers around.

M: Bubbly and light. The drinkability is off the charts. Lightly bodied with a medium-high carbonation level. Slightly swet finish.

O: A wonderfully light and flavorful pale ale that has exceptional drinkability. I wish I had access to this as I would work it into my summer rotation of Daisy Cutter and Zombie Dust.
