Description 

Everything about this beer is crafted to showcase the signature big-citrus-with-just-a-hint-of-pine flavor of Oregon-grown Cascade hops. On the malt side, we keep things super simple so the hops have plenty of room to show off. Then, throughout the entire process - brewing, dry-hopping, and aging - we take special care to get everything just right, so you get a truly distinctive beer that exemplifies the best in southern craftsmanship.

This dry-hopped American Pale Ale begins with paired fruity and floral hop aromas. They're unusually distinct and separable, but fresh. This beer tastes predominantly hoppy, containing fruity flavors that have a tropical element. It is also quite bitter, supported by a clean and neutral malt presence. Clarity is excellent in this golden beer despite the dry hopping. Because the hop character is so distinct and less layered than many other APAs, personal taste will divide opinions of this example.

Due to the strong hops presence borders an ipa taste despite its clear appearance in the glass. A bit of a sting in the palate which wears off on further tastings.Nat Greene has a solid rep and is hard to obtain up north where i reside so this was a welcome change from the usually dry pale ales of NE
