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.

Received from @Josholson666 in NBS BIF #4
Can BB 11/24/16 at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter
Aroma – citrusy
Head – large (Maximum 4.5 cm, aggressive pour), off white, frothy and stiff, diminishing to an irregular frothy ring varying from three to fifteen mm with a frothy heaped partial layer
Lacing – good. Broken wide rings with tiny to large bubbles.
Body – light orange, hazy
Flavor – dank and bitter; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate – light, slightly oily, lively carbonation

This is more like an IPA than some of the IPAs I’ve had recently. Very dank with a long hang time.

Appearance 4.5, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4, Overall 4.25

12 oz can poured into pint glass

A: Nice soapy white head that settles to a film, yet clings to the glass nicely. Body is a hazy medium amber in color.

S: Piney, resiny, lots of bitterness

T: The piney taste and resin are there just dialed back, beer finishes with a little bit f bitterness.

M: medium feel decent carbonation lingering bitterness.

O: Pretty fair beer I'd say this was more of an IPA than a Pale Ale. Its not something you would be disappointed with, but you aren't going to be thrilled by it either.

It is a very dark burnt orange color. Kind of cloudy with a nice off white foamy head.

Smells very citusy and musty/earthy with a bit of spice. I would guess it's an English style pale.

Very, very hoppy. Lemon and grapefruit rind. A lot of spice. Almost rye like. Significantly malty without being heavy bodied, but still on the full end of medium for the style probably. Pretty sharp and zesty flavors clash with the base a bit, which still resembles an English version.

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.
