COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American craft beer has become known worldwide for being innovative, unique and above all: hoppy! This deep golden, hop-forward American Style Strong Pale Ale brings loads of unique American hop character and as with most things American, some international influences. We blend four different hops from three different countries to achieve the harmonious balance of citrus and tropical fruit. The clean bitterness is balanced by the sparing use of crystal malts and a blend of base malts including a portion of Maris Otter English malt and American red wheat. Our house ale yeast contributes mild fruity esters and leaves the fermented beer nearly crystal clear, only for us to come along and throw in a bunch of dry hops, leaving a permanent “hop haze.” We think it’s a beautiful thing!

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange body with a nice white head. Big time hop aromas - tropical fruit, pine, and citrus with a good amount of caramel malt. Flavor packs a hop punch with some bitterness and a piney finish.

Ferris (2002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle - Light caramel with some earthy hops. Cloudy copper with a decent beige head. Light grains and caramel malts with some bittering hops. A nice pale ale, but not at all an American hop forward version. Could be an old bottle, or just not that hoppy.

brystmar (1112) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Gorgeous pour from the bottle: cloudy amber body, handsome white head, sticky lace dirties my glass with aggressive retention.

Fresh, dank hops dance with the malty base. Touch of wheaty sweetness midway through; fruity hops balance the bitterness. So fresh. Such balance.

An excellent APA, especially from a Texas brewery. Second great hoppy beer from the guys at Community. Color me impressed.

kevinator (710) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2013
First from this brewery and a good first impression. Faint hop aroma without much else. Brown golden color that comes across as unfiltered cloudy. Average white head. Crisp and carbonated palate. Leans toward the light side. Piney hops are the predominant flavor with a light malt background. I don’t detect the fruit listed in the description. Bitter finish and easy to drink and good with a pizza.

(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of herbs, grass, lime, pineapple, and grain. Flavor of herbs, grass, caramel, citrus, and grain with a dry, bitter finish.

Cavie (3671) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Tap at Gman FW. Pours a hazy orange color with a light white ring of head. Aroma is floral in nature, hoppy and a bit soapy. Flavor is floral hoppy, soapy, very small sweetness. Easy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 14, 2013

Flavors are toasty, mild diacetyl, malty and grain. Citrusy and herbal hops. Dry. Dry, elegant esters, very easy to drink. Low bitterness. Quaffable and dry pale ale.

Fratto (2523) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2013
On tap at Rodeo Goat. Hazy orange pour with a small head. Aroma is sweet, toasted caramel, and almost mint. Taste is super malty, a little bitter, and a little earth. Pretty good finish.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma and flavor are what I expect from a pale ale. I get some nice biscuit and toffee notes, as well as some orange and lemon. Very well balanced overall and easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
