This is a tasty IPA. Nice and refreshing and quite enjobable. It is not as dark as some other IPAs, but good nevertheless.

Half-pint at the brewpub February 19 2006 in the company of Mr. Toto, aka ClarkVV. Poured initially very hazy-oily copper with just a tiny wisp of head, though it clears out somewhat....restrained grapefruit, sort of a dried character, and woody-resinous hints in the very pleasant but typical aroma....fair bit of fruit and acidity at the front and a strange touch of moldiness, fairly strong caramelized malts in the middle, drier, woodier character towards the lightly tart, quick finish....somewhat watery. Clark commented that this wasnt nearly as good as the time hed had it before...methinks this keg was just a touch old. Still not bad at all, but Im pretty much a sucker for Cascade IPAs.

Cloudy golden body with off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, pine, some caramel, light pineapple. Light-medium body. Full favor of hops but not overwhelming.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Aroma is cascade all right but Im getting a bit of dish soap and a nice graininess as well. Taste is just too much grains for my liking, could be why Im not into single hopped beers.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Cask at brewery. Piney grapefruity citrus hopped aroma in the nose with a slight weird mustiness. Amber-red hazy color with yeloowish light tan head. This is an extremely easy drinking beer...slightly sweet to start, creamy and milky middle. Finishes with nice piney hoppiness and wonderfully balanced. This is very good at lots of things, but not excellent at any.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 On draught (and I bought and drank a growler too) at the brewery, Feb 2005. Golden-coppery color, quite hazy with a firm white head. Fantastic aroma, even from a regular pint glass. Pure, fresh, juicy, sweet, green hops and a touch of malt in the background. Flavor continues with the green hops aroma, with probably the freshest hops flavor Ive ever tasted in a beer. Light spice/herbal/grass notes, no overbearing citrus or pine notes. Its all hops flavor, without all of the obnoxious bitterness. Perhaps Im a bit biased because I love Cascade hops, but this was just fantastically flavored. A touch dry on the malting, if they could add a bit of sweet toasted/caramel malt, it would be pretty close to perfect, in my book. Medium-full body is another strong point of this beer. The lack of any significantly sweet malt, may detract from the balance a bit, but it keeps the flavor crisp, refreshing and very drinkable. No wateriness, carbonation is minimal, as it should be. A definite must try!

On tap at the brewpub. Wow. Orange and hazy in color with a white head. Fresh hops. Raw green cascade hops, not processed. Enjoyable. Wonderful..

Tap at the brewpub. Come one, come all! This is a must try beer!. And took best of show for my little beer trip, for sure. And I was not even considering having this until I got a taste from Mkobes, who said it was very good. Hazy golden orange, white head. Amazing raw fresh green hop aroma. Green grass. Like I am in a bed of freshly picked (and not dried or processed) hops. Not citrussy at all, or piney. Round and gentle hop aromas here. Aawesome hop flavor and gentle bitterness. Wonderful thing, those fresh picked hops are. The hops take the day. Maybe you can complain about the malt being a little lite, but when you want to showcase fresh hops, this is fine. I love this beer.
