Boundary Road Brewery – American Pale Ale (NZ)

Boundary Road APA ...... quite at home on the range
Boundary Road APA …… horses drink it by the trough full.

American-style pales can be overdone, over hopped …. like a drunk boxer in a night club, just a little too punchy. When done well, the APA is a thing of beauty and the gateway to refreshment and satisfaction.

New Zealand’s Asahi-owned, Boundary Road Brewery have got the balance right with this one. Their American Pale Ale is a honey-coloured brew, with a floral, piney aroma. There’s plenty of fizz on the tongue, beautiful orange zest undertones and a pine sap finish.  I can’t wait to try the American Double IPA ………… although that could come out swinging like a drunk boxer. We’ll see.

Here’s vintage pale American, Bruce Springsteen with ‘Thunder Road’ …………..
