COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our namesake ale represents everything a good, well balanced pale ale should be: malty but not to sweet, refreshing but not too bitter, full-bodied but not too heavy, lively but not over carbonated. A clean, everyday beer that leaves your palate begging for more. 1.054 OG 32 IBU 5.5%ABV

Lothore (451) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a hazy orange color with a nice 1.5 finger head that fades to a nice amount of frothy lacing. S- Light grainy aroma with undertones of orange zest and light fruit. T- Deep and malty without being heavy, hints of citrus fruits that leads into a grapefruit bitterness. M- Medium viscosity, soft carbonation. D- This is a killer APA. Nothing too crazy going on here but I am digging the balance.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 006: Cascade-tastic 01 on 02/21/2014. The beer is a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with a slightly soapy character and flavors of herbal hops, biscuit malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

TheHOFF43 (1670) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Tap @ Alpine. Pours a light yellow with minimal head. Pretty boring beer--grassy herbal hops, weak taste, somewhat stale seeming.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bottled recently. Pours light amber with an etched surface and excellent clarity. Smells of floral hops and plenty of grainy, sweet malts. There is a good dose of wood on the nose too - not very impressive. Flavor is of slightly sweet crystal malts, some wood, a bit of bitterness, some zucchini blossoms. Medium bodied with moderate carb. A drinkable beer, and easy to guzzle at that, but nothing special. Serving type: bottle 09-19-2012

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on November 28th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours gold.
Aroma: Aroma of light sweetness.
Taste: Light sweetness, faint bitter, nearly lagery.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: Didnít really get the "pale ale" angle of this. Not a bad beer, but not nearly as exciting as other Alpine beers Iíve had.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
merc7186 (1736) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2013
A: Hazy Golden Straw/Mildly Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Decent Lacing S: Mild Floral Hops, Mildly Bready T: Grainy, Floral Hops, Mildly Bittering Hops M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Mildly Drying Overall, a nice bitter APA but gets kind of boring after a few sips because of the cascade hop character.

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Alpine, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is pretty bland and lifeless, with biscuity malt and a light hop character. Flavour brings out light floral hops and biscuity malt. Very light and pretty flavourless. Clean and drinkable - just boring.

Ontape (150) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. I thought this was just OK. The hops arenít coming through enough for me and thereís not much to really separate it from any old APA. Not a beer Iíd turn down but nothing Iíd seek out again.

Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty a bit sweet grassy citric. Flavor follows the aroma, nicely bitter. Sessionable

Ferris (2000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle - A little grain and sweet pale malts. Clear copper with a good white rich head. Hope forward bitterness, with some grain and a touch of pale malt. A nice APA.
