BEER INFO

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: brownish amber color. Light head of about half a finger on the pour and was present while drinking. Below average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

Smell: The front is airy, floral hops. Tropical fruits mesh with with a slightly nutty malt body. Accents of caramel and toffee added by the malt as well. The hop tones have a bubblegum sweetness that is very inviting and refreshing.

Taste: Semi-sweet malt presence with some piney bitter hop tones picked up on the front. More of the lighter floral hop tones pick up in the body and toward the back end. Sticky, resinous malt wears on the palate throughout drinking and provides a full body. The finish is continuing bold malt and some medium bodied bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Heavier on the mouthfeel then the aroma would lead you to believe. Thick malt layers the palate. Hops bite throughout.

Overall: A hoppy pale ale but definitely keeps itself in the realm of being a pale ale with a big malt presence. Takes a toll on the palate though, certainly not the easiest drinking pale in the business.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a goblet.

A: Hazy, light amber color with one finger of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass and prolific yeast particles hang suspended throughout the column.

S: Grapefruit is the dominant quality, although some biscuit is also detectable. Very clean, with plenty of volatile hops oils.

T: Begins dry, with bright mixed citrus hops aromatics and fairly soft and refined pale malt. Acidity is assertive, yet well-matched to the bright fruity qualities. The middle sees the emergence of herbaceous spice and restrained crystal or Belgian aromatic malt chewiness. Bitterness is strong for the style in the finish, with ale esters that linger on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly resinous and acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer comes across as a dry-hopped Sierra Nevada pale ale might. Assertive but predictable, this APA is what West Coast-style IPAs were striving for some time in the past.
