Great Lakes Brewing Co.
Ohio, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
A toast to the Cuyahoga River Fire! For rekindling an appreciation of the Great Lakes region’s natural resources (like the malt and hops illuminating this fresh Pale Ale). Crisp and bright, with refreshing flickers of citrus and pine that ignite the senses (not our local waterways).

Pours a light copper. Big bubbly head off an aggressive pour settles to a thin ring after a few seconds. Lively carbonation.

Very grainy aroma, surprisingly malt-forward. Touch of alcohol. Hops aren't particularly evident.

Well-balanced flavours. Fortunately the hops show up to the party. Resinous pine right up front. Nice citrus flavours, particularly orange, add a bit of freshness. Caramel malt starts to develop mid-way through. Nice clean finish.

This is a nice refreshing APA. Hops will disappoint some, but flavours are clean and clear.

A- Orange with a two finger head. Not 100% clear. good bubbles.
S- Citrus hop notes, cascade hops. Some hidden malt sweetness. A little pine.
T- A very hoppy APA, those cascade hops really come through. Perfectly balanced with the sweet malts.
M- Extremely refreshing beer, leaves a wet mouth feeling which I love for any occasion. Perfect carbonation. Little bitter aftertaste.
O- This is an excellent APA. A lot of good flavors, Perfectly balanced and very well done. This is what every APA should be in my opinion.
