The brewery is great at making awful beers. Again over carbonated and fruity. Like a Zina but worse. Sink pour

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2016 12 oz bottle from the Beers of AOPD The APA poured a hazed to clear amber color with an off white head and modest lacing. The aroma of bready malt greets you. You expect a more bitter beer with a 54 IBU. The taste is modestly sweet with light citrus. The body is light-medium with soft carbonation. The finish was clean with some lingering sweetness.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 200th US rating. A malty, medium-hopped ale, kind of middle-of-the-road, not too much going on but not bad.

Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom, NH. Aroma is predominantly yeasty bread dough with some malt and floral hints. Appearance is a cloudy copper with finger width creamy initial head that reduces pretty quickly but hangs around. Taste is medium malty sweetness. Palate is medium bodied with pretty average carbonation and mild zing to the tongue. Finish is wet but abrupt. Overall, a highly drinkable beer that is an OK beer. Enjoyable but pretty average.

Pretty good for a pale ale. Tastes hoppy and has a great nose. Would drink it again.

Yes a pale ale fer sure. Just a clean fresh beer aroma. Big rocky head from a bottle. A rather mild tasting pale ale. Never tries to be in yer face and I like that. Must say this is one of the better behaved APA Ive ever tasted even after 4,000 beers, heheh. Just the right amount hops to let you know its hopped but never over the top or inyer face, good balance IMHO. Never rude. Finish is a mild citrus thing on the palate, good overall.

Medium gold amber body. Long lasting two finger white soap bubbly head. Malty citrus aroma. Mild bitter hop bite. Sweet caramel fruit taste. With sweet wet finish.

Last beer from Eric. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange with a tinge of glossiness over the color. The head was about a fingers worth of white foaminess that once it dissipated there was some light stringy speckled lacing here and there. The smell started off with a light citrus hops and then had a fair amount of caramel malts with a slight herbal quality to them. The taste was semi-sweet and then lead to a slight bland hay/almost dried and toastiness over and all about. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was subdued but still somewhat decent for the style. Overall, for the most part, this one isnt a bad APA, its just an average one to me.
