This is under rated and coming from a non fan of this brewery. This beer however is what it says it is and nothing more nothing less. A classic American Pale Ale with an amber pour with a pillowy lacing head. The aroma is grass, hay,wheat, Schuylkill River and everything else Philly, soft pretzels, cheesesteakes, piss at City Hall. And yet it has a somber finish, forget about the taste. Classic Philadelphia and if you don’t like like, take a hike.

Bottle from Acurtis. Darker and hoppier than I was expecting. I got the slightest metal taste in this beer, which i’m not sure of the origin, but it actually did not bother me too much. Lets call this what it is, an IPA. Pretty good though.

Capa (3448) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Copper with a white head. Aroma is medium citrus and earthy hops with light grass, and light caramel malts. Medium, crispy body. Flavor is citrus, light grass, and medium biscuit malts. Finish has a nice hop bite. Very straightforward APA. Easy going with a proper amount of hopping to make this pale a go to beer.
