COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
XPA (Extra Pale Ale) is an American classic. A hoppy session ale . . . relatively light and low in alcohol but packed with flavor. Old World English malts are paired with new American hop varieties, resulting in a superbly drinkable yet complex brew, ideal for evenings out at the pub or when entertaining at home. This beer has it all – enough hops to satisfy the most serious hophead, but enough malt to achieve a perfect balance. This American Pale Ale is unfiltered and unpasteurized.

Solid pour, head lasts awhile. Fruity, musky smell and taste. Goes down nicely wiht various sweet citrus overtones. Feeling apricot and peach the most. Golden hay with shaded sun coloring. A fine sipping microbrew here. Goes well with sharp cheese and tarts but thats your perrogitive. Hay feel in the aftertase brings feelings of open fields of hops and malt. A delicate treat on the pallate.

A cloudy golden brew with very good carbonation out of the bottle. Light citrus aromas. Bready flavors with good fruit-spice hop balance. Clean finish. A good one!

Sample. A bit malty with strong hop bitterness. The flavors didn’t seem to have blended as well as they should have. Maybe this was a young batch.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2011 Hazy amber; frothy white head. Juicy oily pungent hop aroma. Flavor - same; bready taste, crisply hopped. Very nice pale ale, for my money, best beer from High & Mighty so far.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2011
A lightly hazed golden amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, nice peppery hops, light cookie malts, lightly herbal and grassy. In mouth, a light smooth pale ale with light hopping, a bit of oileyness. On tap at Redlight Redlight, Jan. 6 2011.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Aroma of simcoe hops, mostly, with a slight sweetness. Well balanced flavor with bitter hops tingling on the back of the tongue. Surprisingly good.
