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.

Purchased: Received from a friend

Bright and clear copper-colored brew with an off-white head of a finger or two. The head goes down quickly but still has some lingering retention and a little lace. Aromas seem fairly muted of citrus hops.

The taste is pretty strong in the hops department as you'd expect and has a sharp bittering factor. Mouthfeel is crisp, with a finish that's both dry and bitter.

Overall a well-made hop-forward beer with no frills.

Thanks to Kirk for this one!
