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.

On tap. Pours a burnt golden orange in the glass with a ½ finger of bright-white head. This stay smooth and creamy looking, leaving back a robust smattering of lacing behind. Smells fresh and floral with a little dankness and pine mixed in. Lot of juicy tropical fruit notes. Taste has a zesty grapefruit bitterness with a resinous finish. Sticky notes of fruit, herbal flavors and neutral malt sweetness do a tremendous job of balancing and adding extra flavor to this. The mouthfeel is medium with a firm and sharp feel in the mouth which is undercut by just the right amount of creaminess. This was really nice. An APA with a good bit of aggressive to it yet was still extremely well balanced, with those tropical passion fruit flavors in particular really standing out. Well worth checking out.

On tap at Prime 16 served in a ¾ pint glass. Why is a 6% APA not in a full pint? Hmm…

A: Very lightly hazed pale amber body, with a finger of dense, pillowy white head. Terrific retention and lace. Excellent.

S: Floral hops dominate, with some light fruity and honey notes as well. Fairly light, very fresh. Enjoyable.

T: Follows the nose at first, with bright floral hoppiness dominating the front and middle; toward the finish the honeyed malt comes into play with a bit of biscuity sweetness ahead of a cleanly bitter aftertaste. Hop-forward but still balanced. Simple and very tasty.

M: Light-bodied and highly carbonated. A bit too thin and bubbly, but not bad for the style.

O: Very good APA, and well-worth the $3.50 price at happy hour - even for a 12oz glass. It's nowhere near amazing enough to justify the price of bottles, though. If this came in a $10 sixpack I’d be all over it.
