Just like you, but different
Finally I found one in the local shop, the Behemoth – ‘Murica. My Beer #399 – man could get a bit emotional about it .
Murica APA is: “bittered with Columbus, then late in the kettle there is Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe. Then its dry hopped with a redonk load of Simcoe and Amarillo hops… love me some hops yeeeeehaw!
(fires guns into air)”
This is a bottle with fantastic colours and all that.
I’ve noticed that there are a couple of local craft brewing companies that don’t maintain a high profile presence, they don’t have web pages and rely on Facebook for information. So coming by something on this beer that isn’t on the label is hard yards. But I digress and harp on a bit, just because I want to google them doesn’t mean anyone else would want to find out about anything they do, ‘miright?
Rich hop aroma on opening.
Oversized head, like everything in ‘murica it’s big! Great bloom of aroma in the glass lots of grassy hoppyness and things. great orange brown colour, clear and crisp looking with -as noted- a head of largeness and fluffiness!
This is really full of hop taste but not really the frowning bitterness they’re just a bit loud but not shouty in the mouth and delivery a bit of a punch. lots of length in this too, with me still savouring the first, to be honest. gulp and not sip. The aroma made me do it.
It is more bitter than you could expect from a pale ale, although you could expect the dry hop notes that it has.
This then a very very good beer, it’s bigger than Texas!
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 a of its things from the thing. Which makes it a great beer. So despite it’s trick label, amusing name and well rounded hops and flavours it manages to be quite good.

American Pale Ales are light in color, ranging from golden to a light copper color. The style of this beer is defined by the American hops used. American hops typically have high bitterness and aroma.This is a perfect beer for big fare like grilled burgers or combination pizzas, as well as lighter fare like sushi and green salads.
