COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

Bottle into pint glass, amber hued golden color with light tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, grainy and mango-y fruity/citrus hops. Taste adds notes of grass, bread and pine/grapefruit hop bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, slightly creamy with some lingering citrus finish. Nice well rounded pale, need to try one fresher to see if hops pop more.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Pine, floral notes, citrus, and some spruce on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a good amount of malt letting you know it’s a pale ale. Very good.

Pale amber, slight haze, with thin white head. Fruity and piney hop aroma. A little citrus at the back of the teeth. Pretty good. Aroma oversold it.

Frank (2889) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This is a clear orange color with a small ring of a fine bubbled head. It has a mild hoppy nose w/ just a teeny touch of citrus maybe. It is pretty dry w/ a vegetable bitterness to the finish. I really do not like the house character of this brewery.

TheAlum (5721) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at Schlafly Bottleworks (Maplewood, MO). Pours a nice amber golden hue, a bit darker in the middle with frothy bright white head atop. Mellow ring laces ok and sticks around small. Aromas are a bit soapy, citrusy grapefruit and lemon. Touches of bread, gentle grain, earthy and floral bitterness. Fresh, a touch vibrant. Initial is lighter end with some decent spritzy bitter hops. Lemon, touches of grapefruit and florals. Some touches of bread, gentle earthiness and dough. Cleaner, dry and bitter as we hit the backend. Nice, clean, the beer isn’t hop dominant but is tasty and fresh. Pretty approachable APA. Smells very nice.

I liked the dry hopping in this. It has a nice hop aroma and taste. Not too overpowering, since it’s not an IPA.
