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.

Poured a nice dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was spicey hops with some floral and fruity notes. Flavor was very well balanced of hops and malts with a nice bitter kick in the swallow. very good APA.

Bottle, thanks strykzone. And boy a big thanks. This is an underrated brew. An awesome amber pour with a nice big white head. A great floral aroma hits you with some green pepper and malty sniffs as well. The flavor doesnt bite you with hops but you can taste them with delicacy. The malt is sweet and the carbonation is nice. A really good beer.

Thanks to Goliath for this one Bottle poured a good finger worth of head that lasted; it just slides down the glass as you drink the brew. The amber orange body color looks awesome in my pint glass Aromas citrus hops and bread yeast not much malts in the mix, light if any This brew taste great I say it is the best APA I have tried just the right amount of malt sweetness and hop bitters to make it extremely well balanced I wish I had a pizza to go along with this one. Medium body great carbonation as well Highly drinkable APA this brew is a must try in my book. Very enjoyable glad I started of with this one today

Comes out of the bottle a coppery orange with two fingers of thin white foam. Nice lasting lacing on the glass, and strong citrus aromas. As the name implies, a very strong dry hop flavor with a hint of orange zest on the finish.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a small fizzy head that dissipated to nothing quickly leaving no lacing. Smell is dominated by the resiny pine hops and citrus with a definite bready malt aroma in the background. The taste follows the aroma with the same pine needle hoppy flavor with a bit of citrus in there as well. The malt background is again evident and balances out the hops nicely. The mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky with very little carbonation leaving the resin aftertaste to linger. This is a very drinkable APA as the dry-hopping is not over-the-top.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden, thin white head. Light aroma of citrus hops with some sweetness. Taste is really balanced, bready malt and citrus, bitter hops. Some residual bitterness in the finish. Decent.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Its really a highly drinkable APA. Not quite as dry or hoppy as other brews in the style, but still with good hop character and a nice smoothness. This is an APA you could enjoy, glass after glass.

Bottle, thanks to kwoeltje. Pours a hazy light amber, off-white head with good retention. Aroma of nice fresh hops. Flavor of abundant fresh hops and light detectable malt, light sweetness. Medium body with med-high carbonation. Good stuff!
