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.

A: pours a slightly hazy golden color with a short lived white head, although a thin head persists.

S: Grapefruit and a bit of pine are in the forefront with a bright apple background. A little bit of spice in the hop adds a layer of interest to the aroma. slight breadiness, finishes semi-dry.

F: Bright grapefruit and apricot with a semi-sweet fruitiness underlying. Good balance of bitterness and aroma hops. A bit of a spicy, earthy background.

M: medium body brew with a medium low carbonation.

O: I like this beer. It as a pleasant complexity in the hop bill. The sweet malt profile supports the bitterness. It drinks like an IPA with training wheels. Good job as usual from Schlafly.
