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

Clearish golden yellow pour. Decent head with spotty lacing left around the glass. Aroma is excellent - slightly fruity, slightly hoppy. Flavor follows the nose, but is more intense with just the slightest twinge of bitterness finishing things off nicely. Feels just a tad overcarbonated, but other than that is an easy drinker. Not too bitter considering the generous amounts of hops used, this is a beer I could easily have several of in a session. Tasty, and something I would definitely drink again.

Poured from bottle, has an unclear amber color with white head, has a great aroma that is full of hops and it tastes just like it smells! Very good beer, one of my favorites in Madison, WI!

12oz bottle, courtesy of CaptainCougar. Medium off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately orange/grapefruit, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some grapefruit/orange. Light-medium body, quite drinkable.

pkbites (858) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a frothy white head. Very nice floral aroma. A "thick" feel of melted caramel on the palate. Hoppy, but not as bitter as expected. I would prefer this a little more bitter, but this IS quite good. If you want hoppy beer with only medium bitterness, this is your brew!

Not sure how this appeared in the ole Beer Fridge, but I’ll drink it! Nice floral aroma from the hops, pours a hazy copper color with a nice white lace on the edge. Wish the head had lasted longer. Good fresh hop taste and good bittering on the back side. Full mouthfeel. Wish I had a sixer of it now!!!

12 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Thanks Craig! Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet pale malt, floral with moderate orange citrus notes. The flavor has a decent mix of malt and hops. Pretty big for a pale ale. Toasted caramel malts with nice citrus hops. Medium bitterness and very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Nice fresh hop flavor and aroma. Body almost too thin for the amount of hops, but it still works well. Serving: Draft

On tap at the brewery. Fairly pale bronze color with whit head. Aroma of citrusy hops. Hop bitterness is solid with a good finish, but the malt side is a bit weak and overly caramel. Still, a solid APA.
