Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Just after opening our brewery, working long nights, weekends, and still maintaining our day jobs, my brother Daniel (the brewer) had twins. Cheers to his courage and dedication to making better beer.

Poured from a 16.9-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Sample was approximately one week past bottling date. Beautiful juicy-looking bright orangeish-yellow color, with a thick white head that seemed to hang on forever before receding and leaving scads of sticky lacing. Big aromas and flavors of orange, Meyer lemon, and grapefruit, with lots of citrus-
zest bitterness and a bit of crackery malt sweetness to balance everything perfectly. Dry finish, with a pleasant lingering bitterness. This is, simply put, one fantastic beer. Bravo!

This is phenomenal. I think this has to be the best pale ale ever. I get district notes of grapefruit. The aroma makes me want to drink it. The taste makes me want to drink more.
