Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

In the long view of the history of beer, American Pale Ale is a newcomer. Based on English Pale Ale, American brewers adapted this style into something new. Born out of the reverence English Pale Ales during the 1980’s American beer scene, APA is the bold, hoppier cousin of Pale Ale. With an emphasis on American hops, APA is gaining popularity with breweries racing to make these ales with such great hop characters.

Had this poured into a pint glass. Color is a translucent golden. Flavor and aroma are as advertised, hops hops hops. More pine than citrus here in my opinion, with a short crisp finish. Relatively smooth mouthfeel, no complaints there. Good stuff.

Wasn't much a fan of this one. Flavors and hop aroma seemed far too muted and it seemed oxidized at less than a month old - not good. Light pine and citrus with a touch of grassiness, but also clear cardboard oxidation flavors which shouldn't be present at 3 1/2 weeks. At least it had a drinkable, crisp mouthfeel, so that's one thing it has going for it.

Tasted in a Teku glass from a 12 oz bottle on September 5, 2015. Look is cloudy orange gold, thick head that dissipates to a thin top, and nice lingering lacing. Smell is grass, grain, pine and some citrus. Taste is bitter citrus fruit, pine resin and caramel malt. Finish is light to medium in body with a dry finish.
