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.

Pours a beautiful copper amber hue with a bright slightly off white head forming thick, fine speckled lacing is left down the sides of my tulip chalice. Aroma has earthy, citric, and resinous based hops very aromatic very nice subtle malt biscuit sweetness going on not too complex but a nice lighter hoppy ale. Flavor ample hop bitterness a bit of hop pellet concentrated hop action with some hop flavors layered in I would go with mild dank cannabis and citric earthy hops actually quite nice...enough sweetness to keep things rolling but really the hops shine here. A bit of biscuit malt just enough to make the beer balanced. Mouthfeel is slick with hop oils from the dry hopping process medium bodied crisp carbonation feels good going down. Overall the type of beer that every brewery should offer flavorful not overkill with alcohol or hops, really nice warm weather hoppy brew.

Serving Type -Bottle

Appearance - Burnt orange/tan with a nice 1 nice head, and tons of sticky lacing.

Smell - Mild hop presence, a little citric, some orange and pine. Slight aroma of bready malts also. A sweetness of yeasty sugars rounds this out.

Taste - First sip you get the dry hops mixed in with some bready malts. Nice light bitter citrus flavor comes in next, along with a little sugar note. Some lemon and a little bite of spices also. No alcohol is noticeable.

Mouthfeel - Hops coat the tongue, and bitter it a little. Palate gets more hops with a bready malt flavor mixed with some sugars. Aftertaste is a little bitter and dry.

Overall - Not bad, has decent amount of hop flavor for being a low alcohol beer. This is a nice lighter beer to enjoy, especially summertime weather. Worth a drink but nothing to actively to seek out.

I make it a habit to only review beers that are worth my time, this is certainly one of them.

This is one of the best pale ale's I have tasted. It is just a dry hop bonanza and it is neither to bitter nor too sweet, and has adequate malt but not enough to detract from the hop flavor.

I went through a phase where I would not drink a beer below 7% abv because I didn't think that they could have enough flavor. This is one of the beers that proved me wrong and I love it for it.
