Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

3.6/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Mostly clear orange body with some carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom. Bubbly white head that leaves a lot of lacing.

S- Sweet malt with some citrus hops coming through. Not as hoppy in the nose as I was expecting. Smells more malty with some grassy aromas.

T- Pretty similar to the nose. The hops are there, but more complementary, with the malt coming through a lot. Some citrus, fresh grass and biscuity malts. Has a slight lager taste to it.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, very balanced.

O- A very drinkable beer, but not a great example of the style in my opinion.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Pazzo's (Lexington, KY)

Clear amber body with excellent clarity; decent white head leaves some spotty lacing.

Aroma: about as much sweet malts as hops. Fruity

Flavor: Some complexity from the hop mix. Biscuity malts in the background.

Feel: rather light bodied; near medium carbonation; smooth.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours light amber with a touch of haze, no head. Smells of pine and citrus. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, touch of salt, bit of metal, a touch of bell pepper. Finishes really clean with very little linger, the bell pepper taste most present here. Very drinkable, quite enjoyable.
