Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Shit, I stop paying attention for a couple months and all of a suddenly (as my brother would colorfully put it) Choc distributes to my area. Fair play, I s'pose. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises mixed greens, flowers, light sweetgrass, and a few drops of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, but the proceedings are dominated by a new-coming pall of spicy pine resin, something that really doesn't jive with anything else, much less my tongue. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda slick feel. Overall, this stuff just didn't do it for me, mostly due to that weird spicy green character. Pass.

Picked this up a Biergarten in Jenks, cheers Freddy!

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head.

S: Some phenols & wet grains, breadyness, grapefruit & pineappple. Below average head retention & lacing

T: Sweet breadyness, some peppery notes & yeasty notes, grapefruit & slight grainy astringency up front. Finishes with much grapefrut & wet cereal notes

MF: Light bodied, slight carbonation, some warming & coarse notes

Not sure why this is called an APA, this has more of a Belgian/Franco slant to it with some American hops pulling it slightly away from that style

Easy drinker, the Belgian slant of this works for me...

3.53/5  rDev -2.5%

A: Hazy golden-amber body with an exceptionally attractive and creamy, durable head.

S:Smells like a pilsner with a slightly high malt/hops ratio.

T - Starts mildly bitter but bitterness starts building in the finish. Mixed hops (Euro hops?) throughout but no strong hop note other than an unfortunate long-lasting, earthy bitterness in the aftertaste.

M: Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation.

O: Decent, but leans to the less fruity and more earthy ends of the APA spectrum.

The OPA is decent...I'm not sure I got a fresh bottle or not. It was off the Binny's singles shelf. The beer seemed as thou it was going to be an over primed bottle....but I was able to pour it without much flare up. The beer poured a slightly hazy gold with decent white head that is leaving a lace. The smell is more malty than hoppy. The taste is a okay....I believe this is call a pale ale because of color....not so much as for hops used. The mouthfeel was medium in body with big carbonation. Overall its a good beer. I'd like to try it again just to see if the bottle I had was extra primed.

Poured into a snifter. Appearance is hazy and orange with thin head and some retention. The nose smells of dated herbal hops and pine with modest malt presence. Unfortunately, this bottle doesn't appear to have a bottle date, so its hard to say how dated or fresh it is. The taste has a bit of sharpness from the bitter herbal hops with not a whole let else going on. The finish is somewhat boozy for the style. Mouthfeel is thin with moderate carbonation. Overall, this brew is below average for the style. Again, not sure if a fresher bottle would yield a more positive review, but as it stands, this is an uninspired APA.

Into a pint glass. Two finger of head, good lacing. A dark and cloud straw colored body which looks really nice up to the light.
It has a solid pine and grapefruit smell to it.
Taste pine and lemon. Varying degrees of bitterness but it's all bitter, and the good kind. Long-lasting after taste of pine tree.
Smooth, almost creamy, body. Low carbonation. Goes down easy.
A bolder pale ale, some might think it's an IPA. Pretty good and balanced.

3.98/5  rDev +9.9%

A - Hazy amber body with a 2 finger head that creates sudsy lacing down the side of the glass.

S - Sweet citrus, very floral, mint leaves, mild pale malt.

T - Floral and green herbal hops right up front, dried grapefruit peel, hints of lemon, dry pale malt, bitterness starts building through the finish in the form of herbal tea tannins. The finish is dry with a floral aftertaste.

M - Medium body, moderate soft carbonation.

A nice dry-hopped Pale Ale with plenty of hop flavor. The citrus was alot drier than the nose let on. Lots of floral and herbal goodness, ABV is hidden very well. A solid drinker.

Slightly clouded copper with a nice collar of white foam that leaves a few specks of foam on the glass. Toasted malt is accented with a hit of predominately piney hops balanced by a soft caramel note. Some citrus and grass come out as it warms up. Nothing to complain about, but also not much to keep me coming back. There's too much good beer on the shelves, even in Oklahoma, for OPA to make a big impression.
