COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all other ales pale in comparison to ours. Dry hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive. Philly Pale, as it’s better known, is crisp, hoppy, and bursting with citrus. Philadelphia Pale Ale was named one of the best Pale Ales in the country by the New York Times.

A great tangy, bitter ale with good hop presence. Full flavor yet light enough for a hot sunny day.

djd07 (9533) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with medium off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong citrus and dank hop. Medium mouth, crisp, citrus, light pine, crushable, very good.

Spindelphia (17) - Lambertville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2016
One of the most popular brews in the region, Philly Pale is an excellent, well balanced beer. Nice citrus taste, goes down smooth and easy. Slightly hoppy, but not too aggressive. The perfect beer for kicking back and having a few with friends while you enjoy the game or the weather or just life in general.

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
Earthy hop, touch of spicy hop, biscuity malt, with med bitterness and well-balanced.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Golden body with medium, soapy head. Nose is hoppy and soapy as well. Taste is hoppy up front with citrus and floral and wheaty. Creamy texture.

burg326 (5265) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Poured a golden color with aromas of dryness, light bitter hops and some light malt. Flavors are the same with light hops and dry aftertaste decent but basic.

This is the best pale ale in the world. Also it is better than most IPAs. Supremely drinkable. Amazing aroma. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sirmixsomewhat (190) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
A pale ale can either be too dry and too bitter, or it can be a perfect thing to drink. This falls somewhere in between. It’s bitter, to be sure, but not in a way that makes it hard to drink. Beyond that, though, it’s light in color and in flavor and doesn’t do much else. Smells floral.

BillKismet (3780) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Blonde to bronze in color with a flimsy head. This APA is more assertive than I was expecting, starting off with a raft of bitter hops in the nose with some nice dryness to it. The body is assertively hoppy with a good bitter backbone and some interesting fruity and twangy notes. Malt backbone is there to contribute some balance and not much else.

GIJOE (1077) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pours a pale amber with almost no head. Nose is spunky and cider-like. Taste is lightly hoppy, but on the sweet side. Refreshing, albeit simple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Bella Notte pizza in Pittsburgh. Just an average ho-hum pale ale in an saturated category of meidocre efforts
