Several M.A.S.H. members picked 30 lbs of Cascade hops, grown just a couple miles from the brewery, for this beer. Hops are usually dried, but these hops were added immediately to the boil kettle after picking. Bitterness was kept rather mild for this style of beer to allow the green, resiny, citrusy, fresh hop character to shine. A great local product!

On draught at the Blue Heron Brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy amber colored brew with a thick and creamy off-white head that resembles a nitro pour head. Excellent retention and lacing throughout. Aroma of mostly Cascade hops, a hint of green vegetables, toffee and caramel malt. Taste is very smooth, semi-sweet with flavors of grapefruit, toffee and caramel. Finish is semi-sweet, toffee and caramel aftertaste with grapefruit without the typical citrusy bitterness as most other American Pale Ales. Closer to an English Style Pale Ale. I normally do not order food with IPA or heavily hopped American Pale Ales. This specialty harvest hop APA will go well with any food. Well done!
