Notes/Commercial Description:
Sweetgrass APA is a Pale Ale of distinction! 2009 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winner in the American Pale Ale category, this crisp and fragrant beer is hopped and dry-hopped with plenty of Amarillos and Cascades. Try it with any bold, flavorful food to complement its citrusy, resinous spiciness.

Bottle into a pint glass

App: Golden-red with an ample and thick off white head.

Aroma: Citrusy and hoppy with almost no malt sweetness. Grapefruit and honey notes in the nose.

Flavor: Surprisingly not as hoppy as the nose suggests, though the hop bitterness becomes apparent at the finish. THe beginning and middle are dominated by a mild malt sweetness that almost seems too plain for an IPA. Diacetyl flavors tasted during the transition from malt to hop.

Mouthfeel: Not too astringent, though the large amount of carbonation make this one feel a little heavy.

Overall a decent beer, though its beginning lacks some complexity that I would hope to see in an IPA
