Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 04-09-2007

Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

In the long view of the history of beer, American Pale Ale is a newcomer. Based on English Pale Ale, American brewers adapted this style into something new. Born out of the reverence English Pale Ales during the 1980’s American beer scene, APA is the bold, hoppier cousin of Pale Ale. With an emphasis on American hops, APA is gaining popularity with breweries racing to make these ales with such great hop characters.

So, I actually liked this beer pretty well. To me, it was nicely hopped but not over done. Keep in mind this is not an IPA as some seem to think; it's an American Pale Ale, a style a bit lighter all around. Use that for a basis of comparison and it will score a little higher.

A nice linear IPA approach. Not a huge abundance of different flavors or layers, just pure hoppiness. Nice hop forward presence without much malt to overshadow. Not my favorite version of an IPA, but a good go to. Would like to taste fresh as this one was bottled about a month an a half before tasting. I am curious as to how much the flavor would change in a fresh setting.

Probably won't seek it out specifically, but would buy again if I came across it and was in the mood.

Nothing super special, but it does have a nice fresh hop taste to it. Certainly not a bad beer to order a glass of, and a good solid choice if you just want some hops.
