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.

Pour is orangey amber with a big off white head....smellis strongly citric...taste is lightly sweet up front, with a nice citric bitterness coming through in the end....a simple beer, but well done.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a small fizzy head that dissipated to nothing quickly leaving no lacing. Smell is dominated by the resiny pine hops and citrus with a definite bready malt aroma in the background. The taste follows the aroma with the same pine needle hoppy flavor with a bit of citrus in there as well. The malt background is again evident and balances out the hops nicely. The mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky with very little carbonation leaving the resin aftertaste to linger. This is a very drinkable APA as the dry-hopping is not over-the-top.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s really a highly drinkable APA. Not quite as dry or hoppy as other brews in the style, but still with good hop character and a nice smoothness. This is an APA you could enjoy, glass after glass.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - MAY 16, 2008
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy honey brown pour with a nice head that unfortunately fades fast. Aroma of floral hops and honey. Flavor: nice bite of floral and citrus hops with a hint of honey on the finish. It is medium bodied and smooth on the palate with fine-bubbled carbonation. Overall: great, sturdy APA.
