An American pale ale brewed with Centennial hops and hopbacked with Cascade, it's a real refresher that has a spicy, citrus aroma and a slightly nutty malt flavor.

Cakes (401) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2012
22 oz .Bottle from the State College brew pub. A milder and pleasant pale ale with a light hoppy feel. A slightly cloudy burnt orange colored body, with a tan soft formed head. Mostly smooth up front, with some creamy dough and yeast flavors. Slightly sweet pineapple and peach hop flavors, though not strong, and not approaching the level of IPA. Mild, smooth palate, with a decent APA-to-style hop bitterness. This is one of my wife’s favorite beers.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy, semi-burnt orange color with no head nor any lacing. The smell had a light under-spiced absorbing citrus to grassy connotation to it. A light toasty to breadiness finds itself around the aroma. The taste was semi-sweet and lightly spiced with a light underscore of bitter citrus rind. A sharp sweet citrus finds itself in the aftertaste and leads into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sharpness as an APA should on the palate. This was carbonated nicely. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA I could have again, preferably in the warmer months as there’s a decent refreshing quality about it.

Transfer from BA review on 9-30-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a golden colored brew with a tiny white head. The head faded fast to leave very light level of lacing. Smell - The aroma was a mix of a biscuit and bready aroma with some lighter notes of an earthy and hay-like aroma. Taste - The taste begins with flavors of a lighter caramel sweetness and a biscuit base. As the taste moves on the sweetness fades some as flavors of an earthy nature come to the tongue. More toward the end of the taste, the earthy flavors grow even stronger and are joined by a light herbal flavor which in the end, leave a dry bitter flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the light to average side with a carbonation level that was rather average. It makes for an easy to drink brew, but lacks some complexity which may have been better to accentuate the bitter flavors. Overall – An OK beer. It tasted and drank very much like a standard APA but lacked some of the finer flavor transitions and subtle flavors of a great APA.

Transfer from BA reviewed on 2-15-12 - Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a nice golden color with not too much head. There is a moderate amount of lacing upon the quick dissipation of the head. Smell – Carmel malt is the most prevalent. While not very potent, there is a light amount of pine and citrus hop mixed in. Taste – A very nice malt backbone with a slight roasted barley flavor which is lightly sweetened by a bit of toffee flavor. The lighter hop flavor then comes into play toward the middle and the end. Mainly pine and earthy in nature, it leaves a nice finish to the taste. Mouthfeel – A little thinner then would be desired with an average level of carbonation. Pretty standard for the type of brew. Overall – Not bad, but noting too special. Easy to drink.

Bottle. Pours a darker amber orange color with very little head. Swirling generates a bone white head. Mild citrus aroma. Decent. Citrus like flavor upfront but not overly strong. Almost has an almond like nut flavor in the middle. Mild bitterness in the end.

blklab2007 (2108) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle as a recent extra. Pour has a rich orange color with a coating of off white head that hung on rather well. Aroma has citrus, sweet soap, mild caramel malt, and some earth. Mouth feel is light and there is lots of high side carbonation. Flavor has a light malted base, citrus, some pine, and faint bitterness into the finish. It is a light weight but the hop flavors come across well.

The appearance is a nice orangish, copper color to it with a nice head and some lacing on the glass. It is a very well carbonated beer. The smell had a nice malty aroma to it with some hints of citrus to it and hops. The taste is decent with a good bitter hop taste and a nice malty finish which is well balanced. The mouthfeel was a little disappointing with a mildly bitterness to it that lingers but nothing else. Overall, a decent APA from a brewer I had previously been to and wished I worked closer to. I wouldn’t go out of my way for this but wouldn’t turn it down either.
