Pass through the event horizon with this IPA2. American Cascades meld a citrus blast with spicy English First Golds. Savor an intense hoppiness, smooth bitterness and subtle malt character. Prepare to go hypersonic!

On tap somewhere in San Diego...backlogged rating in my phone. Deep golden color with medium carbonation. Aroma is hardcore orange citrus. Flavor is overwhelming lemon and orange citrus with a heavy malt base...I like my DIPA’s like this. Malty backbone is a bit too sweet though...lower double IPA bitterness than expected. OK I guess.

Cokemonkey11 (364) - - MAY 19, 2016
American pint, keg. Pours medium amber with medium light haze and a medium thin white head subsiding average. Scent is medium light citrus and light soap. Taste is dense early hops with very high bitterness. Hints of hickory smoke on the nose. Little bit of wood resins and a little soap. Mouthfeel is medium dense creamy and light dryness. Nearly a great beer.

obxdude10 (2220) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle from Wegmans in Collegeville. The Mach 10 poured an orange color with a thick, pillowy beige head. The nose features some grassy, fruity and piney hops, along with a good amount of bready malt. The body is very well balanced. Nothing about this beer really stands out. The hop profile is delicious, with piney and bitter flavors. There’s just the right amount of malt on the palate as well. But nothing really jumps out of the glass that separates this beer from another.

Bottle. Pours out a nice golden / amber color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of bitter, oily hops, citrus zest, some sweet cereal notes, sharp bitterness. Taste is solid, sharp oily hops, lots of citrus peel, grapefruit, mild cereal notes. Lots of bitterness, oily resiny.

slowrunner77 (9202) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Not my favorite in an awesome family of IPAs and IIPAs from the Bear, but a nice big blast of bittersweet citrus, with some accompanying spice as well. Fairly juicy with a bitter earthy finish.

biirusaikou (2245) - - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle shared at AA (the bar, not the group). Big orange character with a juicy mouthfeel, fresh pine with a minty edge, notes of biscuit and marmalade, dry hoppy finish. Cascade really shines nicely in this dangerously drinkable iipa.

willisread (2003) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle shared at AA. Thanks Davido! Hazy orange golden color with a big soapy off-white head. Big hop aromas with orange, pine, biscuity malts and pine standing out. Medium body but hides the abv very well. Sweetness on the palate with good pithy, citrusy bitterness. Long, bitter finish that lingers. Very nice.

ADfan (773) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 28, 2015
In the glass it has a honey amber color with a nice head. Lots of fruit on the nose with flowers and herbs. Taste has tropical fruits and citrus followed by a big wave of bitterness. Long finish.

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Backlog. 22 oz bottle from Bullfrog Wine & Spirits. Hazy orange appearance with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of musty yeast, hop resin, citrus fruits, pine, light peppery spice, caramel malt and light toffee. Similar flavor, tastes a little old honestly. Medium to full body with a goopy, light syrupy mouth feel. Meh, just OK for the style. Kind of hard to drink after a bit.
