I needed some empties to bottle some homebrew for a few coworkers and grabbed a 12-pack. Damn, it's a nice break from the super hoppy pales that are the norm now. I need to find a close clone recipe.

I agree. It's been awhile since I had some but I really enjoyed it the last time I had it. I'm not a super-hoppy beer guy anyway.

Do you mean bitter hop or hop flavor/aroma? Not sure if I have ever had their apa.

It's a nice solid APA.  Haven't had one in a few months but there's a reason they keep brewing it.

It's what I bought for my wedding. A Solid Pale that's pretty cheap to boot!

 

Once my brewery gets up and going, I'm planing to have a pale like it for everyone to enjoy.

I find that I sometimes crave an ultra-hoppy beer but I generally don't want 5 gallons of it around because A) it won't get consumed quickly and 2) that fresh-hop character may fade because it takes so long to drink. After maybe 2 or 3 beers like that, the hops seem to build up on my tastebuds and it's just not enjoyable anymore. Enter the standard APA... flavorful, still with a decent amount of hops, enjoyable and easily consumed for an entire session with no tastebud fatigue. It's one of my favorite styles and they're still around if you look. Another that I had recently was Schlafly Pale Ale... very solid.

It's well balanced and not in your face on either. The hops are there, but the crystal is able to shine through, and it's still crisp and not too sweet.

I prefer it on draught vs bottle.
