HOPS: Columbus, Nugget, Cascade

Note: Formerly Poleeko Gold Pale Ale.

A hearty APA is the only way I can describe this one. Pours and smells like any other pale ale. The taste is strongly bitter with hops, pine, and grass flavors. Mellows into a smoother malt and caramel. Probably the most bitter APA I’ve ever had.

via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a golden color with a small off white head. Aroma has a light grassy, earthy hop scent. The flavor is slightly bitter with a little grassy, citrus hop flavor. Light to medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Richard.

12oz bottle poured a hazy gold color with a small white head. Aromas of piney hops with a little honey note. Has a good balance of hop bitterness and malt with a dry finish. Overall a clean Pale Ale with good balance and moderate alcohol.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized fluffy head. Flowery hops, caramel and fruits in aroma. Strong grassy hoppy flavour with dry hay in finish. Strong hayish hoppy aftertaste. Too much hops for me... Mouthdrying.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2006
12oz bottle with a large rocky offwhite head that stays very well and laces the glass. Aroma of grainy malts and a little lemon. Flavor begins grainy but it quickly overtaken by bitter grapefruit and orange peel hops. Very crisp and clean on the palate and pretty well carbonated. Pretty refreshing.

Fairly light bodied brew from the bottle, pale gold color with a small head. Taste is simply just hops, citrus, pine, and a bit of malty sweetness. Simple, yet very effective recipe with a well balanced taste.

vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Pours copper with a generous rocky off-white head. Aroma has clean grainy malt with hints of hops, but not much. Medium / light bodied with moderate carboantion. Taste has husky grains and spicy hops. The finish however is all hops, quite bitter with some pine and bits of citrus. After a bit some of the caramel is noticable in the background. Nice pale ale, but not nearly as good at their IPA which is the same price at my shop.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet malts, and a slight hoppiness to the nose. Flavor is sweet malts, citrus, pine, and finishes with some bitterness. Good body, drinkable.

A nose more like a premium lager, piney and bitter. Flavor is surprisingly more bitter (hoppy) than i expected for a pale ale. Flavor is hops, great malts, sweet. People say that pale ales are boring and lacking this, or that. This is definitely proving them wrong. A kick ass pale ale, and another good brew from the boys at AVB.

Just another APA in my book. Nothing done wrong here, maybe a bit thin on flavor and mouthfeel, but this one didn’t stand out (who can’t brew an APA like this?). Western US hops were present: resinous, pine, light citrus. Pretty thin on the mouthfeel and only ok on the flavor. Go with the ESB if you want a better APA tasting beer.
