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.

Pours a clear, light orange color with two dense fingers of white head.

Smells of light grain some orange and lemon peel.

Bitter orange and some lemon peel with a light malt presence.

Light bodied yet slick with moderate carbonation.

This is a very refreshing, satisfying warm months beer.

3.98/5  rDev +5.6%

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “Bottled With Love on” date is “11 30 2011.”

Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is hazy gold. Two fingers of eggshell-colored head dissipated to leave a thin lacing, spotted bubbles, and a ring of buttery foam around the edge.

Smell: Off the bat it smells of freshly sliced grapefruit. (Yowza!) There are also other citrus notes: orange, lemon, and maybe tangerine. It also has a hint of pine spice. Below the grapefruit and citrus is a foundation of sweet caramel, which keeps the astringency in check. Hints of honey also creep in after the beer has warmed.

Taste: The mouthfeel has a lot of body and is pretty dry. Judging from the smell I thought the bitterness would be through the roof for a pale ale, but it is very tame. Overall, the flavor is a well-balanced medley of grapefruit (less dominant than it was in the smell), orange and lemon citrus, sweet caramel, and honey. A bitter aftertaste lingers on the middle of the tongue and back of the mouth.

Drinkability: Solid and very drinkable. A very good brew.
