Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 04-09-2007

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.

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!

Trying to remember the various great beers I had while bicycling cross-country last year. This one, seems not too well known outside it's local area, is a damn good beer. I hadn't been in the States for some years and was quite impressed with the improvements and availability of good craft beers (you are excused, Utah) and I recall going into a bottle shop somewhere in Middle America, land of Bud Light, and asking for something 'dry hopped'. The knowledgeable guy in the shop sold me this. Full flavored, well hopped, it is a fine one!
