COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

I dunno, this just didn’t click with me for some reason. Certainly not a bad beer but it’s 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, Point’s Cascade Pale Ale is very similar and costs less to boot.

presents well poured in a shaker with a decent white head. Not much aroma to this puppy. The hoppy taste really is refreshing and has earthly feel on the palate a good beer.

12 oz can. Pours a light golden yellow color. Not much different to some "mega-swills". Could be a little darker. There is also a nice white head that at first was big and bold but quickly fell down to a nice top coat that laces very well. Very nice nose on this beer. Not too overpowering but not understated. Hints of citrus come through in the forefront, with a bit of peach in the end maybe? Very smooth flavor. Very sessionable beer. Mostly fruity/citrusy flavor with small notes of pine in the background. Hop bitterness shows up more as the beer warms up. Just the right amount of bitterness. Finishes a little dry but nothing too bad. I would use the word "crisp" to describe this beer.

cblado (229) - Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a light, slightly amber gold color. Thick citrus aroma gives a hint of the definite grapefruit flavors. Spicy, not a particularly strong hops flavor. Slightly bitter, less than other American Pale Ales. A bit oily on the palate. All in all a delicious beer that I would come back to.

Bottle. Dark gold with a medium head. Hop and citrus aroma. Light and foamy to the palate. Nice hop flavor but a little on the weak side.

I enjoy many of the brews from Capital and I added this to my sampler 6 pack during my last visit to the brewery. This pale ale is OK, but nothing to write home about. There are many other offerings from Capital that I prefer more.

Received as part of a mixed 6-pack. Not a bad beer. But personally, not a flavor or styling that I would seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma is sort of boring sweet caramel, biscuit and light piney hops. Flavor the same, lots of caramel, piney lightly bitter finish, bland, and generic pale ale. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Meh

Pours a deep golden brown with perhaps a tinge of copper. Thin, lingering, head. Hops don’t really come through in the aroma, but a citusy hop bitterness highlights the finish. Very good brew from a very good brewery.
