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.

From notes on 11/03/11:
Bottled: 09/29/11; Poured in a pint glass.

A - Two inch thick off-white fluffy, billowy head; Light caramel colored appearance with an orange hue; Moderate cloudy haze; Pretty good lacing all down the glass

S - Not getting a very strong aroma; Light citrus notes consisting of orange and grapefruit; Earthy notes just barely come through as well

T - Orange and grapefruit hop flavor up front, quickly followed by a light sweet and earthy taste; Good bitterness present from start to finish; Grapefruit began to show more as the beer warmed

M - Some carbonation; Medium bodied; Semi-dry and bitter finish

O - There is certainly plenty of bitterness to be had with this pale ale, which is something I do enjoy. The characteristics of this beer place it between a pale ale and an IPA for me. Overall, it's a very solid beer that I wouldn't mind having again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into pint glass. Bottled on 9/21/2011, this guy is a day short of a month old.

A- Light, vibriant, somewhere between gold and orange. Slightly hazy. Thin, white head.

S- Very citrus hoppy. Grapefruit, a slight lemon scent. A malt backbone is present, but the tart citrus easily trumps it. Fairly one dimensional.

T- Citrus much more subtle in the taste, and malt body much more present. A slight yeastiness to it. Not nearly as hop forward as the smell, or as I'd like it.

M- Medium bodied. Not too light. Some perceived yeastiness adds body.

O- Not at all bad, but not great by any means. To be fair, I've had this on tap at Schlafly and it was pretty damn good. The bottled version just seems to lose something though, even though it isn't that old at all.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Light amber in color.. good 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a nice layer with good lacing from start to finish.

S: Good mix of hops, a little pine, and a little citrus.

T: Start with a quick hit of malt, then quickly throws on the hops... and a strong dose of it. Hops are very piny with a hint of citrus. Finish is clean a little wet and not bitter.

M: Medium body with a little sticky feeling.

O: A good APA with a good ABV.. worth looking for.
