not as hoppy as the west coast, but stands on it’s own anyway. nice medium thick, sweet malty body, enought hops to balance it out. very ’session-able’

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Impressive, mostly because of a very slight finishing sweetness, and because the dry-hoppping isn’t over the top. Perhaps the bit of sweetness is because only Cascade hops are used, rather than a combination of Cascade & Chinook? Whatever the case, it reminds me a bit of the finish of North Coast’s Scrimshaw Pilsner, believe it or not!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice dark golden APA. Cascade hops dominate the aroma and contribute to the flavor. However, there is a distinctive bready, earthy flavor to this beer that makes it a bit different from your average APA. Great label by the way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light to medium amber-golden color. Citrusy, slightly piney aroma is there for sure. Hops dominate the flavor as well, with just enough malt to provide some backbone and sweetness. This is very close to being an IPA. Very juicy, citrusy finish. Slightly fizzy palate. Medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rather rusty brown in appearance with a floral nose. Moderate carbonation gives this beer a very smooth mouthfeel. Hops dominate the flavor at first, but then are balanced nicely in the finish by the sweet malt taste.

This is my second favorite beer from Stoudts, second to thier IPA. Their APA is sweet with a grapefruit aroma and citrus taste and a good balance of American Cascade hops. Not too bitter however. A terrific buy- I bought this at my local distributer on sale for 18 bucks! Can’t beat that for such a good beer.
