Half Cocked Pale Ale

Half Cocked [hăf kokd]: A railroad signal that is not in the on or off position

A light golden color with a white head that stands in the glass. The aroma is bright citrus, orange, and a slight malt bready/biscuit. A touch of resin and slight pine are in the background as well. The hops are the star in the classic American Pale Ale. Citrus, orange, and a slight woodiness greet your palate. The resin and pine continue as the supporting malts balance out this very approachable pale. The finish is dry and crisp. Great example of the style.

The American Pale Ale has origins that relate back to English ESB and IPA. Both English styles are on the hoppy end of the English spectrum. APA’s tend not to have as much caramel malt as their English counter parts and APA is of course typically more hoppy, both in flavor and aroma. American brewers have made this style there own and showcase American hops, which the English consider catty in aroma and flavor. Interesting how tastes differ.
