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.

Received in a trade from jbaker67. Thanks!

Poured into a pint glass. Drank on a warm May evening after an exhausting day.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful 3 finger off white head. Eventually a nice thick cap remained with some big bubbles. Ridiculous lacing. Straw colored (though it kept getting darker with each pour), hazy body thought that is to be anticipated since this is bottle conditioned.

Smell: Orange, pineapple, and piney hopes. A sweet, grainy malt.

Taste: More of the same tropical fruit hops, citrus, and a more bitter, piney hoppiness. Simple, sweet malt that lets the hops shine. A very light heat. Malty aftertaste that lingers.

Mouthfeel: Light but nice body. Carbonation on this makes it a really easy drinker.

Overall: Drinkability is great on this one. A nice, light APA to drink as the day cools off. The nose smells like a fruit salad and the citrus hops are a real thirst quencher. However, the hops aren't too heavy handed and the malt backs them up quite nicely. This is one to go after this summer.

A - Pours a pale orange, almost yellow color with very puffy, 3 finger, white head. Very nice.

S - Very citrusy. Orange peel, zest, and grapefruit notes. Slight bit of spiciness shines through. Very bright.

T - Incredibly full taste. Very citrusy. Lots of that grapefruit and orange, a hint of pineapple. FInishes with a bitter, piney hop bite. Excellent.

M - Clean and crisp, very full mouthfeel.

Overall - A spectacular brew. One of the best APAs there out, very nice to be able to try one.
