All About American Pale Ale (APA)

American Pale Ale (APA) is a beer style that originated in the United States and gained popularity in the 1980s. It's the definitive, refreshing, hop-forward beer that is characterized by its distinct American hop aroma and flavor. APAs are classically brewed with American hops such as Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook, which contribute to their pine, citrus, and floral notes, but more modern hops like Citra, Magnum and Galaxy make for an amazing twist.

American Pale Ales have a moderate to high hop bitterness, which is balanced by a light to medium malt body. The bitterness is usually in the range of 30-50 IBUs (International Bitterness Units). The malt bill of an APA is typically simple, with pale malt being the main ingredient, and sometimes supplemented by other specialty malts to add complexity and color.

American Pale Ales usually have an alcohol by volume (ABV) range of 4.5% to 6.2%. They are known for their crisp, clean finish and are a popular beer style in the craft beer industry. The style has also given rise to many variations, such as the New England IPA and the West Coast IPA, which have taken the hoppy character of the APA to new levels. When you're looking for the classic go-to beer style, the American Pale Ale is a great beer for those seeking serious refreshment in a flavorful hop-forward beer.
