Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Since Born Yesterday is bottled and shipped the very same day—probably the freshest Fresh Hop ale you'll get your paws on—the arrival date is kinda in the air 'til things get closer and nature says so. Kinda like a fresh lil' newborn, only this puppy is made from whole-cone, un-kilned Mosaic, Equinox, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops from our farmer friends in Yakima, WA. It's borning soon. Wanna be the first to know when? You've gotta guess first …

I waited to have the whole 6 bottles over a period of 8 weeks to do the review. All the flavors and aromas were more intense as time passed by. Surprising since this is not an aging beer.The last bottle was truly amazing. A combination of tropical flavors with very distinct pineapple and faint passion fruit. This is definitely in my style.

Hazy with a very tropical smell. Tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit aroma notes. Floral, tropical taste. Good mouthfeel, maybe a little too bitter for a pale. Great balance. Very good pale ale.

Poured into a small chalice: color is hazy straw gold, head is off white with fine to small bubbles, presents about 1/2 inch thick, head lingers well and provides spotty lacing on the glass sides with a solid top.

Smell is lightly tropical, some citrus rind, herbs, pretty fresh, but not much malt character.

Taste is similar to aroma with citrus, some tropical fruits, herbs, a little more malt presence with light biscuit.

Mouthfeel is moderate with light bitterness, lingering dryness.

Overall a good beer, but not quite sure I see as exceptional - easy drinking hop presence but just needs some more malt.

Each year, this extraordinary APA becomes more elusive. This year, I was able to bag 3 sixers at our local Total Wine. Had the last one today (they miraculously lasted three weeks), and sadness has set in. Worth the hunt in every way.
