From our Brewmaster, Charles: “Pale Blue Yonder is a classic style American Pale Ale with a hop forward aroma and flavor, but still balanced and very drinkable. Brewed with Columbus, Cascade and Centennial hops.”
By the numbers:
- 50 IBU’s
- 6% ABV
What to expect:
American pale ale (APA) takes the popular pale ale style and gives it a uniquely American flavor. It’s a hoppy beer style that’s quite similar to India Pale Ales, but usually at a slightly lower alcohol content for an even cleaner finish and lighter mouth feel. Pale Blue Yonder pairs perfectly with poultry, or salty snackables. Of course, it’s perfect by itself too.

Some history to sip on: The term “pale ale” originally denoted an ale that had been brewed from pale malt. American pale ale (APA) is a style of pale ale developed in the United States around 1980. American pale ales are generally around 5% ABV, with significant quantities of American hops, typically Cascade. Although American brewed beers tend to use a cleaner yeast, and American two row malt, it is particularly the American hops that distinguish an APA from British or European pale ales. The style is close to the American India Pale Ale (IPA), and boundaries blur, though IPAs are stronger and more assertively hopped. The style is also close to amber ale, though ambers are darker and maltier due to use of crystal malts. (via Wikipedia)
