COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American style Pale Ale brewed with pilsner and pale for base malts, and 2 different kinds of caramel malts for some body and sweetness. Bittered with Nugget hops, then lots of Cascade for flavor and aroma. This deep orange colored beer has a large bouquet of spicy, floral, and citrus, from dry hopping (adding hops directly to the finished beer post fermentation). Long lasting hop bitterness resides on the palate in the slightly dry finish. 50 IBUs O.G.= 1.055 s.g.

Keg @ Hog Haus. As ’pale ale’. Light amber with a small head. Basically all HH beers look the same. Runny caramel, banana, apples and pear. Taste is pretty similar. Green apple and banana. Sickly sweet and a bit oily. Strong carbonation. Poor.

[Tap] Pours a shade of amber. Not much head on it. Nose is of light citrus and lemon cleaner. Caramel and mild metallic notes come forward. Little hop contribution here in the taste, unfortunately. Chalky mouthfeel. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, orange, and florals. Flavor of orange, caramel, light pine, grapefruit, and biscuit.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, small tan head. Aroma of lightly spiced caramel. Taste is chicolate on toast. Not bad.

decaturstevo (4872) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Copper pour with creamy white head and lace. Light floral and citrus aroma. Sweet caramel malt with a floral hop bitter. Reminds me some of an English bitter. Light bodied but a tad foamy. Pretty good beer.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Dark amber body wit a khaki colored head. The aroma was oranges and caramel. There was also a light nutty peanut note. The taste was orange peels with some bread crust. A little bland for an APA.

on tap at brewpub. pours light amber in color with a thin white head. has a good hop aroma and the flavor is a pleasant juniper taste. the aftertaste whimpers away with pine, not bitterness. The aroma is the best part of this beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Copper body with fine white head. Lemon-candy, a little brown sugar aroma. A little doughy. Some chewy hop flavors, with slightly sour lemon maltiness, that receeds for a mostly clean finish. Smooth medium/light palate, and a nice mouthfeel. Overall though, this displays the two biggest faults of most of this brewpub’s beer: 1. pervasive off lemony house character that seems present to at least some degree in all of there beer. 2. Served absurdly too cold. Seriously folks, what good does it do to hire a new brewer when everything he makes get served as a beer slushy?
