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.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 Thanks to Vance for this one. A murky orange color with a thick cloudy head. Aroma is light, a bit of spicy, citrusy hops, plus some yeast. The body is amazingly pleasant. The flavor is quite smooth for a pale ale, not overly abrasive with bitterness. Good hops, a little biscuity. Very, very nice.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bottled on October 17, 2007. Hazy golden pour with a medium sized, white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a bit of must in the background. Flavor is mainly sweet malts with slighty hoppy undertones. Finish doesn’t last too long, with lightly bitter notes.

Pours a dark gold with a lingering head. Smells of a citrusy aroma, and tastes the same. A bit grainy, but not enough to turn one away. Good, but for having "hopped" in the name, I’d expect this to be even hoppier.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Bright piney hopped citrus aroma. Golden yellow with a right foamy head of good duration. Flavor is bitter and haylike. Light wheat. Slightly creamy and mildly yeasty. Slight saltiness. Flavors improve as you drink on and become richer and more complex. Palate is fairly weak and flat. Bitter duration. Good initial aroma and appearance but the flavor and palate are weaker although not bad. Improves towards the end of the first bottle.

natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Pours a golden/orange color with nice full white head. Aroma is balanced with malty sweetness and hops on the piney side. The palate is on the hoppy side with the background of malt. The finish combines the two but it feels like they are fighting to be the front runner on the palate.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottled on 9/27/07: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a thin-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet crystal malt and a big orange grapefruity hop presence. Body starts with a nice pale malty sweetness balanced with crisp, resiny citrus hops toward a bittersweet drier clean finish. Very drinkable without lacking in flavor or body. A good APA.

10-23-07 bottle. Doughy hop aroma. Amber color with nice head. Not a very clean finish - it has this dirty cotton gauze aftertaste. Reminds me of a pilsner with some hops mixed in at the last minute.

AmEricanbrew (5850) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 7, 2007
6-21-2005 bottling date. The label calls this Expedition Reserve. Pours a light amber color with a small head.Has a mostly grainy, yeasty lagar type smell. Light to medium bodied with a frothy mouthfeel. A straight forward taste is of malted grains and mildly bitter. Finishes clean and dry on the palate. Not a sweet beer, nor sour, it reminds me of liquid Grapenuts. Pretty nice. July 2005

bonused bottle courtesy of Drmatt.
Slightly hazed amber pour with a nice sized white head. Slightly earthy, musty orange like hop aroma. Nice mild, earthy hop flavor as well, with similar malt qualities to the Schlafly pilsner. Orange noticed in the taste as well. A nice pale ale overall.

Bottle from Sean, thanks. Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smells like hops and some sweet malty flavors. Taste is powerful and slightly bitter, yet it was still really good. This tastes alot like an IPA. Not alot to say about it, its just a good decent session beer. Thanks Sean.
