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

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Pours a hazy darker golden with a medium white head. The aroma has grassy and citrus hops, orange, caramel malts, and light pine. Taste brings in a good amount of piney bitterness. I find grapefruit, pineapple, and some slight orange. I donít get much maltiness that I detected earlier. Short aftertaste is pine. Light in body, with a slick texture, with some lively carbonation. This one is crisp and is easy drinking. Refreshing actually. This is a solid beer.

Tortman18 (183) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours a very hazy golden/orange with a finger of white head that dissipates very quickly to a thin ring. Moderate carbonation and decent lacing. Nose is all citrus. A ton of grapefruit and orange with a slight sweetness brought on by pineapple and grapes. Mouth is almost the same. All citrus. You can really get the balance of cascade and citra hops. Great finish with a slight bitterness. Very good APA!

artmcd8 (1528) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2014
First of all, 11 additions! Crazy. Bottle thanks to cbfobes. Pours a hazy golden orange hazy color with a slight white head. Light citrusy aroma, some tangerine, slight grass. Taste is light and just a hint of bitterness. Light body and medium high carb. Extremely drinkable but light on flavor compared to the best of the best. Still a great beer that I could enjoy all day.

markducommun (168) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Deep goldenrod, small tan head, medium lacing. Resin, mild citrus, hint of sweetness. Mildly sweet initial taste turning into citric bitterness. Light body, acidic bite, mild carbonation. Overall fine pale ale, no great depth of flavor.

northropfrye (2143) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Lovely orange body with foamy white head. Looks quite attractive. Aroma is vibrant citrus. Taste is citrus, hops, not crazy bitter, kind of thin on the palate.

BeerInHeaven (134) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2014
pours a copper gold with a bubbly white head. very citrusy aroma, orange/lemon. bright citrus but slightly bitter flavor. Great hoppy finish with plenty of floral hoppiness in the sinuses. Right in my wheelhouse!

harrymel (1479) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled: unk A: pours a murky peach on copper ale with a finger of soapy white foam which slowly falls to a thick sheet of the same. Sheeted lace. S: Sweet malts with plenty of piny, citrusy cascade hops. The resin aspect is not so present, but I think the crystal malts are the primary tone here. A little sweet on the nose. T: Oxidized malts give this a disservice. Itís sweet and cardboarded. The hops donít really come through the way I would anticipate. M: Medium on heavy for the style with high carb. Semi-slick finish. O: Below average for an IPA for me. Malts too dominant without the hops to justify. Too sweet. Hops seem dead. Serving type: bottle 10-18-2011

On tap at Sugar Maple. Heavy on the centennial profile, with plenty of orange peel and lemon peel backed by plenty of dark caramel stickiness. Some butterscotch and mild vinegar notes with a medium orange peel hops finish.
