COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Americanized Pale Ale brewed with Pale, Munich, and Crystal malts, as well as Summit, Cascade, Centennial, and Citra hops. Not for the faint at heart, closer to IPA than an english pale ale.
Formerly known as just "Pale Ale"

Definitely more of an IPA than a classic APA. Surprisngly citrusy and easy to drink, despite the 8% ABV.

kchampagne (112) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fresh hops with pine and citrus notes. Very well balanced pale ale with just the right amount of bitterness and floral/sweetness. Leaves a great sticky lacing down the glass. This beer is awesome and is very hoppy. It is almost borderline for an IPA.

I collect rare photographs... I have two... One of Houdini locking his keys in his car... the other is a rare picture of Norman Rockwell beating up a child.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof - on tap. Pours a medium copper with a sticky off white head. Fresh spruce-like aroma - back end floral notes. Flavor is citrus oriented with loads of fresh grapefruit like citrus bitterness, some maple syrup sweetness, a little bit of caramel stickiness. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Solid APA, hit the nail on its head with this one.

1/7/13. On tap at Proof. Clear orange pour with a nice off-white head. Light citrus and caramel with some pine and fruitiness. Fresh hoppy flavor with fruitiness, citrus, caramel, and lingering green hoppiness. Nice.

markwise (4544) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On draft at Proof. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Nose is some malt and caramel with definite citrus hits and mild pine. Flavor follows: nice malt character with hits of grapefruit, mild apricot, and light pine. Light to medium in body, approachable, and a nice pale overall.

Growler from Proof. Orange-gold pour with thin off-white. Aroma is tropical fruit, caramel and pine. Tastes are light drinkable mix of the same with pale malts up front and then an even bitter. Very nice.
