COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we first introduced “Aftermath” in our tasting room, we were looking to produce a drinkable Pale Ale that wasn’t just a reproduction of everyone else’s Pale Ale. We succeeded in creating ours with a unique blend of 5 hop varieties to produce a pale with HUGE hop aroma and flavor, without the bitterness of an IPA.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Mosaic
Malt: Pale, Munich

12 oz can poured on national beer can appreciation day. I do indeed appreciate the canned beer world. Pours golden with a huge foamy head. Ton of hops on the aroma. Nice hoppy, super flavorful beer that I can probably drink all day. Great beer.

This is one of my favorite San Diego style pale ales, basically an IPA everywhere else in the world... Definitely seek this one out!

Can in Seattle. Had some problems .. had the tab break and then it poured with a gushing head. Still a tasty ale. Hoppy mishmash nose, body is sweeter grain and green hops.

Tap at Backyard Bottle Shop. Pours lightly hazy amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, fruity, and herbal hops with apple esters and pale malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Quite flavorful APA. Two demerits. First, this was a gusher; not cool. Second, 5.8% ABV for this style is a bit too high.

Can. Pours a clear amber color with a very large froth off-white head, despite a light and easy pour. Nose is definitely hop forward and grassy with a bit of floral notes coming through. Taste is actually pretty fresh and light, and only slightly bitter with some crispness to it. Solid drinkable beer.

Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a near white head of foam leaving behind sheet lacing. The aroma is big inviting Mosiac and Cascade like hoppiness that pulls up the juiciness and mild maltiness. This smells nice. The taste hits with juicy tangelo and clementine malt sweetened hops. It gets resiny with grapefruit like citrus hop bitterness and pine hops to midway. Into the finish the malty base starts to make noise and joins in seamlessly with the citrusy hoppiness. Wow, a fresh glass of this is just delicious. I have been holding off buying this canned at a bottle shop since far too many pales go downhill fast. Fresh is best here.

AmEricanbrew (6030) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Can. Bright bronze color with lasting ivory head. Dank, skanky pussy, tropical fruit, spicy hop aromas. Medium bodied. Nice hoppy spicy, pine, citrusy floral flavors with tropical fruits, dusty pale malts___nicely bitter finish----very tasty.

One2remeber (153) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Can. Vibrant orange, faint amber hue. Expressive hop nose. Tropical, mellow orange. Clean, not pelletized like a Green Flash. Mute flavors, body is pale and not much else. A bit of a carbonation wash out on the sides subdues any potential flavors. Sharp hop bitterness, guessing from high bittering addition as no resin/leafy/pellet taste is detectable. Flavor does not match nose. Would appreciate more definitive taste character. Would drink again, but nothing to recommend. I would like to try another from the brewery.

Can from Bob’s.

Yellow-orange with a pitted near-white head, IPA-looking pour. Powerful blast of grapefruit zest and Mosaic onion on the nose. Fair bit of mango as well. Flavor lands pretty much in IPA territory, maybe somewhat more quaffable. Damn, this Mosaic thing is just so hard for me to get past. But as I go on with the glass, it mellows a bit (just don’t inhale) and this one starts to make sense.
