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 a can (canned on 4/17/14) into a Bell's tulip. The beer is a murky burnt orange color with about a finger of off-white head. The nose has hints of grapefruit, marmalade, fresh toast, and a touch of bready sweetness.

Medium-light body with a firm feel and a balanced flavor. Some toast and marmalade notes up front and a nice hop explosion at mid-palate providing a nice rye-like spiciness that lingers a bit on the finish. Not as citrusy as I hoped it would be. More of an amarillo- or cascade-like hoppiness. Still, very refreshing and appetizing.

Very nice beer. Reminds me a bit of Sierra Nevada's classic Pale Ale, but with a slightly more pronounced malt backbone. Not my favorite style, but darn tasty.

Poured from a can (canned on 4/17/14) into a Bell's tulip.

A - Dark rusty orange color with big 3 finger off white head. Thick collar and excellent plush lacing.

S - Good notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel and bred.

T - Bready with some caramel sweetness that transforms into a hop whallup on the palate. Not as citrusy, but there are notes of pine and grapefruit. Classic west coast style with a good malt backbone.

M - Medium to light body with good carbonation and a bitter, resinous finish.

O - Terrific canned IPA that is very west coast in style with the hops and malts that are used. Easy drinker with great flavor.

Beautiful hazy golden orange with a white, persistent, soft head. Great retention and lacing.

Grapefruit and spicy hop profile in the nose with som biscuit.

Really bitter. Grapefruit, fusel spice, and buttery.

Crisp and dry mouthfeel. Soft light body.

A very pleasant surprise. I'd never heard of this brewery and caught this one at the airport, paired it with mahi tacos with a jalepeno salsa. Easily drinkable and quenched a hop craving.

Pours a clear light golden color, with massive amounts of head. Smells of grapefruit, pineapple, and candied citrus fruits. The grapefruit taste is up and front on the tongue with the pineapple and melds into a giant melon rind bitterness and the finish melds into a resiny spruce type character. A lightly bodied with some nice carbonation.

Just a very well executed pale ale with plenty of flavors and plenty of punch.
