2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12oz bottle thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear medium yellow with film of bubbles. Nose of faded hops, sweet grain, very subdued grapefruit. Taste of earth, rye, grain, with a creamy but undercarbonated and slightly thin finish.
Had this been more fresh it may have been better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Amber. Bright hop overtone in aroma but not dominant, it smells pretty balanced. Balanced but uneventful, easy going with a good hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
I wish I liked Cascade a bit more than I do. Tons of white pine cascade hops aroma. Slightly hazy amber color with a moderate head. Light bodied with sharp hops bitterness coupled with a light malt sweetness. Thinkens a bit as it warms, but still quite thin. Finishes with a slight astringency and hay light dryness. Great aroma but lacks in body to be a really good APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another inoffensive, drinkable, yet uninspiring bottled offering from this brewery - a fairly sturdy malt base sets up and earthy cascade flavor - high hop flavor, but low hop bitterness - some herbal, tea-like character - medium sweet - a little yeasty in the finish - peppery on the tail end - okay.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy aroma. First impression is that this is a very nutty pale ale, more so even than some nut browns, but the hops make it better than many nut browns too. An odd pale ale, but enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan, with a foamy, patchy head. Toasty, bitter aroma. Medium bodied, quite easy to drink, approaching watery. Solid crisp bitter hoppiness, really evens out the creamy Vienna-malt tones. A touch of fruity ale yeast flavors in there too. OK, sort of a light West Coast Pale with some fruity Oktoberfest/Amber tones going on as well.
