COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shipyard Brewing Company’s newest beer, Shipyard American Pale Ale, will be available nationwide in April. This refreshing session beer is bursting with grapefruit citrus flavor and features hops from the Pacific Northwest.

Shipyard American Pale Ale was first released in 2013 in the United Kingdom through a unique partnership between Shipyard Brewing Company and Marston’s in the UK. It turns out, beer drinkers across the pond love American beer (or “new world” beer as they call it) as much as we do. Hundreds of draft lines of Shipyard American Pale Ale are flowing in the UK.
Now, in 2014, Shipyard American Pale Ale is available in the US on draft and in bottles from sea to shining sea.

AshtonMcCobb (2923) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2014
On tap @ the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery. This was a fairly restrained pale ale compared to most North American versions. There were gentle herb and citrus aromas and the citrus (probably lemon going into grapefruit) was evident on the palate. However, it was gentle and very balanced.

Theydon_Bois (9916) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny split at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Clear golden with a moderate white covering that dissipates to the edge. Nose is pale malts, citric zip, orange pith, toasty ring, straw. Taste comprises floral notes, lemon zest, orange squash, bready notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. Inoffensive drinkable stuff but a low level APA - lacks Hops’n’Trops (TM).

GBBF Day 2. Bottle. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Mild minerals. Light dry malts, clean. Reasonably fresh orange and tangerine. Light floral things. Whisper of lemon. Dry finish. Not bad, pretty drinkable.
