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.

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 (7129) - 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 (5664) - 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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Poured a hazy copper color with a white head. Floral and citrus hop aroma. Some caramel underneath. The flavor is a mix of citrus hop and amlt with both on the mild side. No real bitterness in the finish. Light bodied.

beerbill (3334) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2007
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with MrRain. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a massive white head. The lacing was left in rows on the glass; as I took a sip, a ring of foam was left on the glass. After three or four sips, there were the same number of rings left on the glass. Fresh citrus hop aroma. The flavor is mostly fresh citrus hops with a bit of caramel malt. Some lingering hops bitterness at the finish. An interesting rendition of the style.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2007
12oz bottle poured in a lager glass. This APA pours cloudy with a huge white head that dissipates quickly leaving behind a rather ugly lacing. The lacing doesn’t detract from the way it looked with that big white head, like the beer just stepped out of a beer commercial. It smells like spicy hop resin. The body is full and crisp. The hops come through nicely. This beer is pushing the limits of tasting like an IPA. The finish is crisp and abrupt and leaves your mouth watering.

Hopheads delight. aroma of citrus hops with flavor that matches. Some fruity notes as well. Finishes very sharp.
