COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

Pours golden orange/amber with a white head. Nose is malt, yeast, and grassy hops. Flavor is tart and sour fruit, yeast, caramel malt, and grassy hops. Bitter hops in the finish. Decent pale ale.

hayduke (5062) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
From the brewpub in St. Louis, MO this draft pour came an exceptionally clear amber with a small white head and good lacing. Very attractive. Nose is grassy and citrus hops on top of caramel malts that set your taste buds aon edge. Mouthfeel is enjoyable yet crisp. Flavor is quite bitter as is the finish. This may be the best offering from this brewery.

Light resin sap colored amber. The head is white and small The Aroma is awesome with ig cascade-like hop aroma and spiciness and fruityness. The flavor is complex and has a high country barley malt backbone and notes of fruit, yeast and caramel. The taste grabs the tongue and feels a tad harsh so Im guessing this is a big beer. Carbonation is good and fizzy and finish is less bitter than the flavor. I also had this on cask and just smooth everything out time five for that experience like a fine woman, art, or piano for that rating’.. whichever of the 3 you prefer.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle, thanks to xmarcnolanx. Amber clearish pour with some white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is pilsner and caramel malt and light hops. Flavor is very pilsner-like in the malt department, with some earthy hops providing a medium amount of bitterness. Pretty well done, good balance and nice palate.

355 ml bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a moderate beige head. Nice floral nose with a touch of citrus. Medium to light body. Subtle slightly fruity malt profile countered by a nice hop bitterness. Semi-sweet finish.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Acknud. Pours orange with pink/red hues and small, rimming off-white head. Nose is bubblegum and PEZ candies, slight apple and some floral and citrus. Taste is fruity, apple, cherry and citrus with lemony notes, caramel sweetness, slight maltiness and a decent bitterness with dry bitter finish. Tasty pale ale, even if its a bit fruity.

On tap at the Music City Brewer’s Festival. Poured a clear copper color with a big white head. Aroma was of earthy hops. Taste is somewhat bitter. Overall I thought this beer was good.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap. Pours a penny colored amber copper. Creamy white white and a real nice lacing. Lots of hop smell, fresh is a good word to describe it. Flowery, grassy, spicy, fruity. Medium bodied and a very dry finish. Tastes like a bitter flower with loads of hoppiness. Breadlike almost. The taste of this beer reminded me of a waterfall in that it was pretty smooth and subtle at the beginning, but exploded with taste and dropped off the tongue very quickly. A really good, really interesting take on an APA.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC (another big thanks to Pawola). Fresh, grassy straw hop, some pale malt in the aroma. Good white bubble head, pretty lacing, amber copper in color. Bitter flower hop immediately, overall pretty one sided on the hoppy side, interesting for an apa, some standard pale malt in there though, prickling at times, light body. The beer made me happy, can’t complain at the moment.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Thanks to Juart. Pours a hazy golden red/orange color with a foamy off-white head. A little lacing. Aroma of cotton candy, golden raisins, and a little pine. The flavor has some malty over-ripe fruit, toffee, and slight nuttiness. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue, despite the overall flavor being kind of light on the hops.
