BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ale Industries
California, United States
aleindustries.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.75%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Light and hoppy is the perfect way to describe Uncle Jesse. This West Coast Session Ale is perfect for the person looking for the hoptasticness of an IPA, but not all the alcohol. Dank and citrus notes from the hops outweigh the balance with the subtle honey malt flavor and aroma.

Comes in pretty much a light orange, looked substantial, but ultimately this one didn't come through as pretty as the beer. Aroma was pretty muted, a little bit of pale toasted honey malt and some hops. Not bursting.

Sessionable, there isn't a ton of hop flavor or bitterness here, is decent but not really a good format or pricing structure for bombers. Especially when I can just get 4 packs of Alpha session or 6 packs of Even Keel, I don't think this will be a repeat purchase.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, earth, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but nothing really stands out about this one to me.

Serving type: bottle.

This was a darker ale, very delicious and high in alcohol. I think it had a perfect overall flavor and would recommend it to those who like a full body beer. Glowing with rich color and delicate notes of sweet chocolate smoked coffee. It is a heavy beer for those looking for a fun bike ride.

The beer and foam came flying out of the bottle and all over me and the floor. A little later trying to pour it into the glass it quickly foamed up half of the glass. The body is a hazy straw color though.
The aroma is grain and apricot.
The taste is fairly well balanced and light tasting. There's a touch of metallic, but it's mostly lemon flavored.
The texture is crisp with high carbonation.
A poor beginning and the rest is okay.
