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

Reviewed from notes. Another Wisconsin finding. Sixer acquired and was poured into a pint glass every time. The appearance was a nice hazy orange to amber color with a decent transparency about it that let carbonation be seen rising. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated and left some light lacing here and there. The smell had a nice earthy herbal yet bitter hoppiness running in and out but combined. The taste was bittersweet all the way through with a nice herbal/earthy light citrusy aftertaste. The finish was somewhat dry. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there too as there was a decent harshness about it but nothing overbearing. Overall, I say this was a very nice APA well worthy of having again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a best enjoyed by date of 1-29-2014 (about 4 months past) Aroma - nice tropical aroma, especially considering the date do the bottle Appearance - golden pour, not super clear and a small head that very quickly disappears. Taste - nice malty backbone with a dry aftertaste. Palate - light mouthfeel. Not much for carbonation. Overall - a nice hoppy pale ale. A nice ale that I would like to try fresher.

Didn’t have as much of the hops as I was expecting by the name. Still a solid drink, but as someone who enjoys a lot of hops I was slightly let down.

This one is a citrus bomb! Lots of light fruit on the nose and palate, grapefruit, lemon, orange, and a hint of lime. Caramel malt balances it out nicely so it doesn’t have that hop bite.

On tap at Stolpa’s Stein House. Not sure on the age of this tap, but very little hop aroma and little bitterness. I’ll have to try again.
