COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thirst-quenching American Pale Ale with a pleasurable hop aroma and taste. A chip off the same block as our Big Nose cypress knee wood spirit, Stump Knocker is a bit smaller, but hes got the same hop headed attitude! Stump Knocker features late flavor and aroma hops, augmented with dry hopping and our unique hop filtering process as we transfer the fermented ale to conditioning tanks for carbonation and aging. These techniques produce a hop-centered ale with a crisp, balanced finish that will recharge your palate! Ingredients: American barley malts Centennial and Amarillo hops Production Targets: Original Gravity: 13 Brix IBUs: 35 Alcohol By Volume: 5.6%

ChadPolenz (1749) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 18B American Pale Ale

AROMA: Strong hop aroma with citrus, green tea and grassy scents. A hint of sweetness like juice concentrate. Low clean malt presence. Clean, bright bouquet. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Hazy shade of copper/pale orange. Large off-white foam retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Assertive bitterness up front and throughout most of the presentation. Light spice/grassy flavor on the first half with some bitter citrus pith. Somewhat dank resin character on the backend. Some juicy taste and moderate sweetness akin to O.J. or green tea. Amber malt base creates for sweetness which is mostly noticeable on the finish. Perhaps a bit too bitter for the style, but otherwise to-spec. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Crisp texture and high bitterness makes me cluck my tongue. Aftertaste is a bit astringent. Feels heavier than 5.6% ABV, but still quite quaffable. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Could probably pass as an IPA, but still true to style for an APA. Plenty to enjoy here. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 43/50

Copper and creamy off white head. Tropical fruit, bready base, well developed. Great smooth yet big bitterness. Drinkable with nice prickly carbonation. Great balance between fruity bitterness and a malty base. Really nice and typical American IPA. (On tap at Satchels on Florida trip)

Wow this was bigger and better than expected. Pours hazy golden with a huge creamy sandy head. Flavors bring juicy citrus notes and hops and malts blended. Body is huge and thirst quenching, as described, making it impressive for a pale ale!

On tap at Hotel B, Lake Buena Vista. This was a real surprise in the hotel bar. Sharp fresh aroma of grapefruit and pine. Lovely pale amber colour, great bitter palate, with a little sweet caramel just lurking in the background. Finishes woody and fruity, with, to me, some blackcurrant/raspberry notes. Really enjoyed this, despite being served in a jamjar....
