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

Courtesy fantomas23. pours a glowing orange color with a medium, foamy white head that leaves nice lacing behind. The aroma is of citrus hops with a touch of pine resin and also some toffee malt background. The follows the same with the big citrus hop presence that is balanced out by the toffee flavored malts. Medium bodied and good carbonation that leads to a bitter finish. A very nicely done pale ale, and one I could drink often for sure.

Pours a very cloudy, glowing, tangerine gold color. A large, frothy white head shows good retention and leaves sticky vertical flares of lacing behind. The aroma gives off big citrus hop notes, primarily orange and grapefruit, as well as some hints of pine. The malt background shows sugar glazed cereal grain and toffee notes. Flavors follow suit, as the sharp citrus hops are countered by lightly sweet, grainy malts and buttery toffee. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate, fine carbonation. A slight astringency comes through on the dry, bitter finish. Overall, this is very good for an APA, bordering on outright IPA status.

Pour is hazed golden yellow with a thin off white head...smell is lightly toasty at first with a nice solid pine and strong grapefruit hoppiness...taste is lightly sweet and biscuity at first with an underlying sweetness moving into a light grapefruit hoppiness...good...

Poured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma is of a nice blend of hops, but not in your face, has some malt behind it. Flavor is fairly hopped up for a pale ale, but still well balanced by lots of malts. Pretty good.

Great, straightforward IPA. Nice sticky, fresh hop flavor with a crisp, dry finish.

Bought in Madison. Pine. Hops. Solid IPA all around and one that can easily compete with any Midwest IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Floral, sweet malt, hay, grapefruit, and citrus aroma. Hazy Golden with thin white head and mild lacing. Grapefruit with mild sweet malt balance. Lasting medium bitter finish.

On tap at the brewery into a pint glass. Looks the way it should. Nice floral hop aroma. Soapy floral hops taste, a bit thin in feel, but a good bit of citric acid right before the mild malty finish with lingering hop acidity. The soapiness was pretty pervasive, and kept this from being a nicely delicate APA. Not as bitter as Sierra Nevada; could have compensated, but didn’t. Overall, pretty average beer. Enjoyable for a session back by the pool table.

Hops, hops, hops. Pretty intense, but something’s missing. Can’t put my finger on it. Rybra spilled plenty of it.

Wow! This is just great beer!! Poured with a nice frothy foamy head and some lace. Hazy amber color. Very hoppy aroma with some malt and caramel in there. I don’t pick up on the citrus; but, I do get a real dry chewiness. Great mouth. Satisfying with a clean pleasant finish. Superb session beer. Having a draught of this at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis. USA
