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.

Nice, light amber color with rocky, white foam. Creamy, peppery hop aroma. Balanced taste barely bitter finishing nice and clean. Medium body provides a smooth drink!

Draft to taster. Looks solid; light though by APA standards. A transparent gold with foamy white hear that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of balanced pine and citrus hops. Tastes lie it smells, but less robust. Nice and smooth on the palate. An easy drinker, but otherwise forgettable.

rosenbergh (6709) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Draught at the Schlafly Taproom, St Louis, MO.
Slightly cloudy golden amber colour with a tiny white head. Fresh fruity hoppy aroma with sweetness and notes of bitterness. The flavour is bitterish fruity hops, sweetness and some maltiness. Quite balanced. Tasty.

Palme (3335) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
On tap @ Blind Tiger House. This is a clear deep golden one with a small islandy and sidesticking white head. Smells fruity, fresh, quite inviting with peachy sweetness and some green pine cones. It’s tasty to drink also, a bit thin oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is about average. Fresh summery flavors. A good amount of peachy hoppiness with floral and soft earthy tones. Not a huge flavor bomb perhaps (at least not compared to the beer I just had) but a really lightdrinkable and tasty summer beer. No problems drinking this again. 16.06.2013

In a chilled mug. Pours a deep gold with a substantial, thick white head. Aroma of....well, you guessed it...hops. Nothing piney or floral or citrus with this one. Tastes much like it smells...crisp at the front and bitter on the finish. Ok.

RRRozie (22) - Cortland, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a generous, frothy head. Little or no aroma, which is surprising for a dry-hopped pale ale. Taste is fresh and lightly hoppy with just the right amount of bitterness, which politely leaves only a trace on the palate once it makes its presence known. A very drinkable and refreshing APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AlainG (1200) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Elle est blonde dorée, coiffée d’une mousse blanche crémeuse qui colle au verre. Des arômes de houblon floral et d’agrumes qui s’entendent bien avec les odeurs de malt. Un goût qui s’élance en une douce et agréable amertume qui est aussitôt rattrapée par sa base de malt. L’arrière-goût est citronné. C’est rafraîchissant malgré l’impression pâteuse qu’elle laisse en bouche. Embouteillée le 25 fév. 2013 (765-070813)

Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011 or thereabouts. Decent beer. Didn't get good notes for this.

Draught at the tap room. Excellent. Great citrus nodes and clean taste. Was really surprised as in the past haven’t enjoyed dry hopped beers. A highlight.

My Bottom Line:
Orange-scented tea leaves and bitter, spicy resins float around lax caramel in this drinkable but rather generic American Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy golden.
-Malts also sculpt biscuity allusions.
-Hops also develop minty and citrusy angles.
-This one didn’t taste like it was in the best shape when we got it...
