Beer Review: SANTAN AMERICAN IDIOT ALE

SanTan Brewing Company collaborates with ASU Gammage to commemorate the PROGRESSIVE® Broadway Across America – Arizona run of AMERICAN IDIOT, introducing the AMERICAN IDIOT Ale, available exclusively from April 9-29, 2012.

Appearance: The pour reveals a copper hue, showcasing lively carbonation. A modest tan head forms, leaving behind delicate foamy lacing.

Aroma: An unmistakable dry hop essence reminiscent of the classic cascade variety dominates the olfactory experience. Subtle fruity undertones accompanied by a faint hint of caramel contribute to the aromatic profile.

Taste: Launching with a bold hoppy kick, the flavor profile features a dynamic interplay of resinous pine and citrus elements. The dry pale malt adds depth, complemented by earthy notes that lead to a swift, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: With a medium body, the beer delivers a juicy sensation on the palate. The carbonation leans towards the higher end of the medium spectrum, enhancing the overall mouthfeel.

Overall: Marking a commendable achievement in the realm of American Pale Ales, SanTan American Idiot Ale stands as a noteworthy contender, drawing favorable comparisons to the revered SNPA. The hop-forward nature and well-balanced attributes make it a promising introduction to SanTan’s offerings, leaving the anticipation of encountering more stellar Pale Ale creations in their regular lineup.
