ChadPolenz (1847) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2017
DOC: 11/11/2016

2015 BJCP Category: 18B American Pale Ale

AROMA: Moderately high spicy hops plus some lemony notes. Low grainy malt presence. No adjuncts, no off flavors. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Pale gold hue with a cloudy body. Moderate white soapy foam retains and laces well. 2/3

FLAVOR: The American hops impart fairly strong citrusy flavors, though a classic Noble hop spiciness is present. Malt base is clean grainy malt with little distinctive character and almost no sweetness. Hops linger momentarily but are not astringent. Slight tartness as well. Whether a true lager or an ale, the fermentation profile is clean. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body over moderate carbonation. Slightly crisp, but smooth and quaffable. Refreshing while in the mouth, but with a residual hoppy aftertaste. Highly efficient and sessionable at 4.6% ABV. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though marketed as a "hoppy pilsner," this is probably better considered an APA and works well as such. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 43/50
