American Pale Ale is one of the original beer styles of American craft beer movement. Unlike old-school IPAs, it’s not just a straightforward hop bomb with strong bitterness but rather a harmonic marriage of malt and hop character. APA was born thanks to consumers’ frustration with beer market dominated by flavorless big-brand American Lagers and functions as an embodiment of what craft beer revolution stands for – beer as an agricultural product, in which you can taste and feel the ingredients and the work behind them.
In Jane’s Paradise we wanted to follow this philosophy. For that we used not only classic American hop Citra, but also Sládek, a czech hop Sládek. The final product is and elegant modern American Pale Ale that carries an imprint of local ingredients even thanks to the use of classic Pilsner malts.
