This pale ale is generously hopped yet balanced through the use of Munich and Crystal malts. Hops added after fermentation gives this American classic an intense aromatic bouquet. Enjoy!

This is a great sessionable beer. A nice amber color with slight head with aroma of citrus. Not as hoppy as I would like but for being a pale ale this beer really does fit to style because I believe most are hoping for hopdinger to be an IPA

Pours a very clean, amber color with a HUGE frothy white head. Aroma has a fantastic flowery, light citrus and strong pine resin nose. Flavor has a an early Munich malt toasted malt that combos well with the early pine bitterness. This transitions to a mild caramel malt sweetness with a very nice grapefruit citrus kick that carries out the finishing flavor. With its modest body, the brew holds the strong hops presence very nicely and even adds a slight dryness to it help accentuate the bitterness nicely. Overall a great beer that showcase what an APA should be with a stronger than average hopping but fantastic malt presence underneath.

I’ll go against the grain here. This is an excellent outside the box APA in my opinion. Very unique piney grapefruit thing going on here, but somehow it distinguishes itself from others in the style. A very nice tanginess in the flavor. This is a treat, and one I’d gladly revisit. Picked this up in Onalaska as a part of a build your own 6 pack.

Pours a clear golden amber color with white head. Light citrus and pine with a balance of bready malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty balanced between the hops and malt.

Clear amber. White fast head. Oily, crispy, malty, grainy. Balanced, hopping doesn’t dominate.
