I'm not sure if this is actually an APA - Industrial Arts calls it an XPA. To me, it tasted like it was fermented with lager yeast and reminds me a bit of Carton Boat, just with less aggressive hopping. It pours crystal clear with a beautiful light straw color. Super clean and super crisp - nothing fancy, just a really nice beer.

Pours a somewhat clear golden color with one finger of fluffy white head. Wheat, grains, breads Malta, and dough. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Maybe I'm spoiled that APA's are so hippy these days but expected
More from this; was very much like a wheat ale. Still a. Good beer but. It hoppy at all.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a light amber color, completely clear, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

Not sure what this is hopped with- it's reminiscent of maybe Amarillo, some Simcoe and Cascade? There's lots of slightly fruity grassiness, orange peel, clean crackery malt, and some grapefruit.

This tastes so fresh and so clean. It's got such a clean and friendly bitterness, grassy and floral, with some pine, and a bit of grapefruit and peach. Everything is in appropriate amounts, and not too domineering. This is great.

This is light bodied, super crisp and clean in the mouthfeel, with a good level of carbonation.

First beer from Chief's new outfit here- this is great.

Pale golden color. Musky and sweet perfume; dank papaya and and earthy lychee fruit element. It's really quite musky. Strong essence of wild garlic scape with overripe papaya, which I don't mind in pale ales that have a soft crackery malt taste with a bit of honey. Overall, it's like I went foraging in Harriman in the late spring. Tart rhubarb, sweeter strawberry, and that skunky scape. It's a bit thin in feel and medium in carb. Finishes with semi-bitter passionfruit. Lots of good flavor for such an easy drinking beer.
