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.

Pours golden with white big bubble head leaving lace along the glass. Smells of musty pine, slight rust, earthy notes. Taste hop pine upfront, not too aggressive on flavor, bitter, complexity. Feel is a bit watery but not terrible. Overall an easy drinker, wouldn't seek it out and buy but enjoyable to try once or if it was a goto for locals for a summer party that would appeal to the masses.

Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Taste is also dominated by some citrus and floral hoppy notes with a dry malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Good beer but not as hoppy as I was expecting.

A- a hazy medium gold. A big foamy white head has long lasting retention, aided by the steady stream of visible carbonation.

S- not much of anything, really. It's a little odd to my nose and I can't describe it

T- a pleasant blend of malt and hops but again nothing really stands out, especially given the dry hopping

M-not unpleasant. A little thinner.

O- not a terruble beer by any stretch but definitely underwhelming
