DESCRIPTION

A rock solid, more traditional American Pale Ale comes to us from Soundgrowler. A touch more malty than most pales these days, but still showing big vibrant american hop profiles.  Citrus and pine, with wood and a good toasty element. This golden brew is crisp and refreshing and a delicious throwback to Pale Ale’s of the early 00’s. 

STYLE NOTES

American Pale Ale

Moderate to high hop flavor, typically showing an American or New World hop character (citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc.). Low to moderate clean grainy-malt character supports the hop presentation, and may optionally show small amounts of specialty malt character (bready, toasty, biscuity). The balance is typically towards the late hops and bitterness, but the malt presence should be supportive, not distracting. Caramel flavors are often absent or fairly restrained (but are acceptable as long as they don’t clash with the hops). Fruity yeast esters can be moderate to none, although many hop varieties are quite fruity. Moderate to high hop bitterness with a medium to dry finish. Hop flavor and bitterness often lingers into the finish, but the aftertaste should generally be clean and not harsh. Dry hopping (if used) may add grassy notes, although this character should not be excessive.
