COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pigskin Pale Ale is light in color yet high in malt and hop character. Crisp and clean like a well-executed touchdown pass, Pigskin Pale Ale finishes off with an end zone celebration of zesty, floral hops that says 6 points, American Style.

Bottle shared by Skyview. Pours a yellow-orange body with off-white head. Aroma of floral, leafy hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is more of the same with hints of pine and grass. Bitter, dry hop finish.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Courtesy of Skyview. Copper color with a large head. Citrusy aroma. Very leafy hop taste, like I just buried my face into a handful of fresh hops. Bitter, acidic taste. A little caramel malt body.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Picked up a single 22-oz bomber from Liquid Solutions in Portland, OR. Pours a semi-clear golden amber brew with a thick off-white head that dissipates to a thin creamy head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus zest, some light caramel malt, a touch of toffee and some white pine. Taste is quite dry bitter, medium bodied, with flavors of light caramel malt, pine, grapefruit and some vegetable. Finish is dry bitter with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. One of the more heavy bitter APA that would challenge an IPA character beer.

bb (6851) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer with a nice cream colored head. Big citrus aroma over a bit of malt. Piney, caramel, citrus flavor. Medium body. Lingering caramel, citrus, and pine. IPA-light. Decent bitterness.

Reid (1877) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Dark golden alomost burnt orange beer, with a very large off white head, thats very thick. Aroma pretty strong citus style hopping, malts weakly behind. Very hoppy even for a West Coast Pale. Citric hops, all through, weak malt backing, hops wear out a bit in the middle of the mouthful, then re-emerge in all their glory in the back of the throat and linger ever after. Nice enough on the palate, nothing extraordinary for style. Over all a nice hoppy Pale. on the verge of IPA territory

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Powerfull APA. Huge head, bitter citrus hops, enough malt sweetness to try to balance. Would drink this anytime offered. Damn good APA.

cathcacr (634) - Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2008
A pretty mainstream, standard presentation on this widely-tried style. You could substitute it for SNPA and you wouldn’t go wrong.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 9, 2008
This American Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy, touch of malt. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and piney. This beer is hoppier and bitterer than a lot of IPA and IIPAs. It is most definitely a Pac Northwest beer. The bitterness has some staying power. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter with some staying power.

Tap @ Bardenay Eagle - Decent pale aroma, very little head. Started off with some nice hop bitterness, but fell flat on the back end in my opinion. There was some bready nuance that I just didn’t jive with. Too many other great pales out there, but I wil try again in the future...
