Draft at Brass Tap. Not typically a fan of cream ales, but the addition of the hops makes this one quite enjoyable. Nicely done Capital.

8/10/12. 12oz bottle from cbfobes. Lightly hazy orange pour with a small khaki head. Sweet citrus and grapefruit aroma with bits of bread and toast. Lightly bready and toasty flavor with a solid citrusy hop presence. Not bad for what it is!

Pleasant and light drink. Aroma is a little malty with caramel and resin notes. Iím expecting a creamy pallet but itís sharp and light.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of some wet grain, biscuit, some slight grass and herbal notes, hints of orange peel as well. Taste is a mix of some grass, pine, biscuit notes come through with some slight spice, touch of orange peel, finishing fairly sweet, some slight mineral notes as well.

An interesting take on the cream ale and one that fits the description nicely. Maintains the smoothness of the cream ale with a nice grass aroma thanks to the hops. Still, if I were faced with the choice of a nice cream ale or a nice IPA or pale, I would go for either over this style. Had one courtesy of Josh N. in KC in 2012

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, poured into pint glass.
Pours like appejuice, golden, little head.
Nice piney hops scent right off the bat.
The 34 IBU's seems a perfect mesh with the not too noticeable cream.
This is a rather nice ipa that hints at a cream ale. Great balance, smooth palate, fine finish! Definitely recommend, as the name may ward off the right consumers!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is grassy hops and mild nutty/sweet maltiness. The flavor is citrus hops, mild cream overtones and a mildly sweet malty finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another solid offering from Capital. Medium orange amber with a l-o-o-o-n-g lasting white head, and full swirls of lace. Taste begins with a sweet caramel malt, which is quickly overtaken by mild, but persistent, hops. The hop bitter continues through the finish, actually lasting far beyond normal expectations. A good combination. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mostly clear orange pour with a white head. Aroma is cream soda with a touch of hops. Medium to lighter palate. Taste is cream, light hop, with a clean finish. Nice.
