COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roadside American Ale was our answer to the arms race on hoppy beers. We crafted our pale ale to be extremely hoppy in flavor and aroma, but not bitter. Enjoy this showcase of American hops that share a medium body and excellent malt balance. We kept the alcohol at a sessionable level so you can enjoy a pint or two.

Roadside was the Gold Medal winner at the US Open Beer Championship in American Pale Ales for 2012.

Ferris (16751) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
Draft - Citrus hops and a sweet backbone. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light citrus and a sweetness that leads to something odd in the finish. The finish also has a bit too much bitterness that is left on the palate.

brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 25, 2014
On tap @ Mother Road. Clear orange pour with white foam. Sweet bread and fruity pebbles on the nose. A lot of orange and some weed. Not bad. Flavor actually has some decent hop flavor. Pine, grass, and orange peel. A lot of fruitiness, too. Some sweet caramel malt and toasted bread.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of biscuit, lemon zest and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of biscuit, lemon zest and a hint of earthiness with a crisp lingering lemon zest finish.

Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid balanced citrus hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Bottle thanks to Josh! Pours a golden amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of sweet fruits and sweet citrus with a bit of light grains underlying. Flavor has similar notes with a touch of citrus but mainly sweet fruits and light sweet grains.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Very light amberish pour. Crisp hoppy aroma. Flavor is full of the perfect hops, citrus, and caramel notes. Enjoyable. Great new brewery.

phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color, just barely darker than the kolsch, with a small white head that laces the glass. Aroma of tangerine, lemon-lime, grass, fresh tea, herbs, floral notes, and pale malts. Really complex, interesting hop profile. Flavor of tangerine, lime, floral notes, pine resin, pale malts. More bitter and not as fruity as the nose. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, sharp mouthfeel. Very solid, unique APA.

3.7
Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2013
12oz bottle pours clear copper with a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma is kind of malty sweet, perfume counter fragrance and then vague citrus hoppiness. The taste has malt sweetness running headlong into a mix of bitter floral hops and lime like citrus hops. The hops get to a pleasing level of resiny bitterness and getting perfumy into the after taste. Decent enough, I’d drink it again thanks to the balance and hoppiness it has attained.
