3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I dunno, this just didnít click with me for some reason. Certainly not a bad beer but itís not particularly memorable either, From a bottle, this pours a clear light golden with a small white head. Plenty of cascade hops aroma. First taste is all piney cascade hops, with little else in the followup. Somewhat bitter finish. Good hop prescense but nothing much backing it up. Honestly, Pointís Cascade Pale Ale is very similar and costs less to boot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pleasant, floral, dry, hops-dominated aroma. Buttery, fruity smell, like peaches or apricots and cream. Also a touch of pine scent. Pours a sparkling, pale gold with a lot of bubbles. Moderate to large amount of tightly laced beige head. Produces nice, thick lacing. Buttery primary taste. Light spices, pine, and lemon sourness. The flavors arenít strong, but they are nice. Dry finish and appetizing, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth, silky texture complements the creamy taste well. Some liveliness on the palate. Capital U.S. Pale Ale is a friendly, accessible, and very pleasant APA across the board. Iím impressed!

Poured golden with a small head. Aroma was mainly piney hops. Flavor was pine and perhaps some light citrus. A touch bitter. A bit watery. Eh.

Yellow with quickly diminishing head. Citrus mixed with pine in the aroma. More of the same in the taste. Nice dry sweet fruit finish. Solid APA.

12oz bottle. Pleasant hoppy aroma of light pine, some cedar, grass and citrus zest. Pours bright gold with a thin white head. Plenty of toasty bready malt with some minimal lemon zest bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Finishes with some steely dryness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Aroma is lemon citrus with hops and cereal. Flavor is quite a bit of hops and bitterness. Body is light and carbonation is average. Nothing special about this pale ale....just another pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden brown with perhaps a tinge of copper. Thin, lingering, head. Hops donít really come through in the aroma, but a citusy hop bitterness highlights the finish. Very good brew from a very good brewery.
