COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a nice inch of fluffy head. Aroma is hoppy, with a bit of pine and fruit. Carbonation is just lively enough, but not too "fizzy" in the mouth. Has a nice strong hop finish, but not overly bitter.

kramer (5228) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a one finger fizzy white head that fell to a thin wispy covering. The nose is fairly bright citrusy hops, but thereís also a nice softness to it from the yeast profile. Some muted caramel maltiness below the hops. Stale iced tea like crystal malt dominates the flavor with the soft citrusy hops playing an accent role. The yeast dulls things up a bit on the flavor, especially on the finish. Soft carbonation with a very light caramel malt stickiness. Overall itís not too terrible, itís just not quite aggressive enough to satisfy my hop craving tonight Combined with the heavy crystal malt, it just doesnít work as a whole.

( 12oz bottle thanks to BA piclee for the extra) Pours clear yellow-orange with oily bubbles on top. Nose of honey, and florals. Taste of light bitter hops with nice matching malt backbone. A little undercarbonated but highly drinkable.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Orangish in color, quite hazy, but not thick, a little fiery, large off-white head, foamy, with decent lacing.   Looks good at least.   Citrus and hops on the nose, although I am getting some fragrant citrus like notes, a little perfumy.   Smells like air-wick citrus candle.   Yep...   Decent hop presense for a Pale Ale, but malt is very minor and it has this slight artificial citrus rind flavor.   Its like a candle crossed with air-freshener.   Meh... Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but nearing the thin side.   Quick finish, falls off abruptly.   Just not all there.   Tiz okay, but doesnít carry the hop bits all the way through.   Needs to be beefed up some.   Thanks to Skyview for the bottle!

pure grapefruit body with fluffy white head, gorgeous. Herbal hop aroma. Creamy mouthfeel with bitterness in the finish. High alpha. Very drinkable, and grows on me.

dmipa (13) - Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Discount Liquors Milwaukee, WI. 11/09. Citrus hop aroma, slight pine, very pleasant. Orange appearance, minimal head and carbonation. Light bitterness, very well balanced with a nice malty sweetness. Slightly sticky, soft to flat carbonation, traces of salt. Overall very nice beer with a good finish that doesnít hang around too long.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle thanks to fidelis83. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of fruity (among other things mango), citrus and slightly pine like hops. Light caramel and sugary notes left behind. Taste is pine cone, slightly husky, astringent, and hay like. Hoppy, but too grassy and astringent. Thin, with medium to high carbonation.

nuplastikk (4852) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Draft at OF. Hazy orange-brown color. Solid APA. Sandy brown malt with some higher than average hop bitterness. Top notch example of the style. Dry and sweet, perfect balance. Quality stuff.

fidelis83 (2075) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Pours cloudy amber with a chunky, 2-finger beige head that has good retention. Aroma is grapefruit, light pine and lots of planty hops, hints of grain citrus and dusty hay. Flavor is citrus and floral hops, white bread, toasted grain, wet rocks, planty hops, a little green apple, light caramel, a little pepper and pine near the finish. The finish is pine and planty hops, toasty grain notes lingering and a decent amount of bitterness, not a lot of bite to it but enough to make it crisp. As it warms it gets a little sweeter and the finish gets a little medicinal bitterness. Palate is pretty full bodied for a 5.5%APA, creamy entry, slightly dry finish with a light, active carbonation, nice. I really enjoyed this one alot, one of the better APAís I have had.
