Minnesota, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malt to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taut white head. Then there are the hops - four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ, and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Clumped up four finger blasting bright white head. Settles with a mountain of peaks an valleys while it sinks, with some clingy lacing. Stops on top of an orange amber body color, a bit hazy, but manages some clarity and a nice warm glow. Aggressive and nice looking pale ale.

Mild sensing citrus hop angle, with a soft caramel touch more into lighter sugars. Slight smokey aroma, with a musty kick, an excellent play on hops without a giant slam and staying in the Pale Ale territory.

Real wonderful palate. Full bodied and light, almost gets into toast, but the hops take over. Chewy mid palate of lemon and oily zest throughout. Finishes with big steely grapefruit oils, and a wonderful hop resin like quality. Full and rich without going overboard on the hops and staying nice to pale ale roots.

This is a beer that I could easily pound, and I am already doing that. Real easy drinker, and stays away from hop water session territory as well. Sometimes it's just great to nail the basics once in awhile.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-Nice golden color with a slight caramel hue. Slightly translucent due to the wheat.
S- Bursting with Grapefruit and Tropical Fruit smells, slightly piney.
T- Nice citrusy and fruit flavors with a pronounced pine taste. Not quite as much flavor as there is aroma. Medium bitterness that lingers with the flavor.
M- Fairly heavily carbonated, but with a more medium body feel. With the carbonation and citrusy/fruity flavors and aromas, I would've like to have a lighter body.
O-Good summer pale ale

I had this beer straight out of the can, so was unable to rate the look. Hoppy and sweet at the same time. Perfectly carbonated.

A - Pours a hazy, cloudy, murky orange with a 1 inch head that settles quickly to a cap.
S - Aroma is not strong, Earthy and a little pine.
T - Malt and and bitterness start up front and carry thru. Citrus - maybe mango - is present but this is not a juicy, citrus bomb.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - One of my favorite APA's. Very drinkable, And low ABV means you can have a few.

APPEARANCE: A hazy burnt orange/amber. 2 fingers of off white creamy head. Hold a flash light up to it and I can see quite a bit of small bubbles rising. Leaves some nice lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Floral, mango, pineapple, pine, citrus, nice sweetness to it.
TASTE: Bitterness up front carries all the way to the back and builds over the course of drinking this beer. Nice blast of sweetness mid palate/ citrus, then the bitterness comes back. Mostly some citrus rind, slightly astringent, a little mango.
FEEL: Nice medium carbonation. Quite dry from start to finish.
OVERALL: Impressed with the nose. The flavor was kind of two note. Above average beer.

A: Hazy golden with plentiful head; great lacing.
S: Hop resin, earth and grass, a little malty fruit and cheese
T: A lot more earthy flavor, nice hops on the back end...just sticky enough to linger for a while with a bit of peppery spice alongside the resin.
M: More viscous than expected with bright carbonation.
O: Very nice, even thought the can is a little old. Would definitely drink again given the chance to have a really fresh one! Thanks, Jesse!
