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.

On tap @ The Flying Sucer, Memphis, TN. Deep amber. Hoppy, floral aroma. Interesting flavors. Makes you want to taste more. This is not a simple reproduction of the style.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Rating #300 - "Roll Out the Barrel" Bottle. Tasted at Schlafly tasting at the Lukas KCMO wine bar. This was a nice beer. From the initial aroma, you could tell this one was well hopped. Taste is hoppy, but a nice balance of malt in there as well. Some slight bitterness and sweetness in the finish.

Dark orange, almost brown. Very nice citrusy hop aroma. Malty, and well balanced. Rivals the SNPA.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 20, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Poured light clear orange with an off white head. Aroma was sweet grapefruit with a moderate intensity. Flavor had some good grapefruit hop character to it, and bitter citrus notes. Was a little over carbonated.

bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Floral, faint hops, and medium bodied malts. Flat and fairly weak. Not the best representative of an APA. Says ’dry hopped’, but its more ’dry flavored’.

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
From a twelve ounce bottle (part of a six pack) purchased at "Liquor Direct" in Covington, KY - This one pours an orangey-amber brew with a maltier-than-expected aroma and tall, rapidly fading off-white head of foam. Tastewise, it’s a tad sweet for a pale ale, but it tastes good!

poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet A: Poured a purty copper orange. Decent head went away fairly fast, but leaves a nice oily lacing with each sip. S: citric, floral aromas, very faint malt T/M: Hops are right in your face with this beer. It’s explodes with very juicy bitter grapefruit hoppiness, decent toasted bread maltiness, and yet it isn’t balanced nearly as well as masters of this type of beer. Decent medium-bodied, slightly chewy at times. And leaves an oily, bitter, lingering finish. Decent. D: Pretty easy to drink beer, the alcohol is medium at 5.5%, it’s a good representation of an APA.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bought as "Expedition Reserve". Clear copper, with a decent sized white head. Nice floral hoppy aroma, kind of a mix twixt resin and citrus. Full bodied, with earthy and floral flavors nicely mixed. A touch of caramell and toffee balance out the bitter.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a quickly disapating head. Nose is lightly fragranced with malt and florality. Flavor continues the light profile and beer is fairly watery. Not much going on here. Thanks to tjthresh for the bottle.
