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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12fl oz bottle poured into my pint glass

Pours a hazy light orange color with a frothy two inch slightly off white head. Great head retention that when subsides leaves soapy scattered lacing clinging to the sides of my glass.

Aroma consist of citrus fruits with the likes of ruby grapefruit being the dominate one followed by tangerines and lemon. Grains of wheat may be smelled(?)along with pale malt and caramel.

Taste upfront is slightly bitter following with a surprise of caramel and immediately afterward the citrus flavors show up with grapefruit and slight lemon zest. Finishes off with a dry slightly grainy wheat type flavor I shall say

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly higher then average carbonation.

Decent APA that is worth trying and something I could see myself ordering again.

Bottled 5/29/13. So over a year old, should probably not review this, but it was surprisingly good! Purchased as part of a mixed six at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Boonton New Jersey on June 25th 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Slightly hazy amber with a finger thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Bready malt and slight fruit.

t: Moderate bready malt under a medium hop bite. Bitterness lingers at first but mellows later. Sweet to dry finish

m; Medium with very good body and smoothness. Some carbonation tingle.

o: A surprisingly tasty Pale, well balanced and satisfying. Very sippable. One of the best American style pale ales I have had. Perhaps aging this actually helps it.
