American Pale Ale (APA) |  4.30% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all others pale in comparison to this one. Crisp and hoppy, Philadelphia Pale Ale is brewed with Pilsner malt and American hops, which impart a surprising citrus aroma.

Had this on 2014-01-12 in Columbia, PA

A - Very clear golden yellow with a 1.5-finger pillowy white head with mild lacing.

S - Rising bread, orange, light touch of pine. Pleasant.

T - Nowhere near as bready as the smell. Citrus zest and flesh forward, tea, light toasted bread, white pepper, Finishes dry with a refreshing citrus and lingering tea.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp. Refreshing.

O - I enjoyed this beer. The orange zest tea element is fairly strong so I wouldn't want this all the time, but it is a refreshing alternative to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with elements of a Daisy Cutter Pale but with a low ABV similar to a 21st Amendment Bitter American, which I prefer over this. Perhaps the closest beer to this is Surly's Bitter Brewer, which has a similar citrus tea flavor and low (4.0%) ABV. I will definitely have this flavorful, sessionable Pale Ale again.
