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.

3.65/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - The beer poured a darker golden color with a big bubbly white head crowning the glass.

Smell - The aroma was based largely in pineapples and bread. The hops that come through in the aroma are sweet.

Taste - My initial impression includes pineapples and bread. The citrus is mild but the sweetness is certainly present. There is a mild grassy flavor but the overall profile is far from resiny. The aftertaste is dry with the hops failing to carry over for the most part.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is active but does not overwhelm. The taste is swept away cleanly leaving a dry impression.

Overall - This is a solid impression of the style, but not one I would actively seek.
