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.

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!

Poured from a 12oz. can.

A: Pours a murky amber orange color with some visible carbonation. Head is one and a half fingers of foamy slightly off white color. Head retains well and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Citrusy fruit aromas of orange peel, and apricot. Also is very herbal hop forward with grassy, and pine like hops. There is a slightly honey sweet aroma as well. Pretty dank with lots of hops, smells closer to an IPA.

T: Flavors of citrus, orange and grapefruit mostly. Then some herbal spice, sweet malts, and lots of pine like hops. Has a lot of bitterness to it and is not as balanced as you would hope for a Pale Ale. Much like the nose suggests closer to an IPA.

M: Light bodied, with a moderately high amount of carbonation. Slick and slightly oily. Has a lingering bitterness and finishes hop heavy.

O: Not a bad brew by any means but not anything special. I like my pale ales to be nice and balanced and this is just a hop bomb. Closer to an average IPA in my opinion. A good beer for you if you like hoppy bitter pale ales.
