COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. At harvest, we rush Goschie Farms’ Cascade hops fresh from vine to kettle. Not any Cascades, mind you, but an heirloom strain, from a single field, restored from the original rhizome. Hope you’re as hopped up as we are.

It has a regular yellow color in the glass with a small head. There is lemon zest and pine on the nose. Taste is a little tart with grapefruit and hops. Smooth finish.

Not a bad beer. Had this one with a friend at Reds Ale House! A very nice IPA, with a smooth Drinkable finish.

harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Best by 27DEC12 Pours golden on pilsner straw with a solid sheet of fine whites. Smells fruity with some resin, grass and green grape. Flavor is grainy and nearly like a pilsner with a dry stony bitterness and only a bit of resin character. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a slick finish. This would be a great beer if marketed as a bohemian pilsner, but IPA, not a chance. Serving type: bottle 10-17-2012

vtafro (2810) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft. Golden pour with white head. Aroma is light crisp hop and into of malt. Flavor is comparable to prima pils or sunshine pils, nice light but not overbearing.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid canary gold with 2-finger white head. Nose is fresh wet hops, pale malt, citrus. Tastes resiny hoppy, with a lot of pineapple and grapefruit flavor, an overall dryness, and some finishing white peppery spice notes. Very good.

Storm_Shadow (107) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Tap. Pours clear gold with a small white head. I found something in the aroma strange. Perhaps a bit grassy ? Finishes hoppy and malty.

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A very pale, crisp and refreshing IPA. Not particularly seasonal for late October, but a damn nice easy-drinking IPA anyhow. 3.5

Tap. Clear gold. Little aroma with maybe a little sweetness. Great lacing. Some initial hoppiness, then a bit of a clean malty sweetness. Very crisp. Well done.

beertholomeus (671) - California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a pale golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, honey, floral, hop and malt aroma. Citrus, floral, honey and pine flavors. Medium light body and a floral finish.

viyh (73) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - OCT 8, 2013
I really like this beer! Nice and light golden hue, but packs a bit, fruity aroma punch. Nice and hoppy, good amount of bitters, just enough to boost the powerful tropical punch, pine, and pineapple aroma. There is so much of this fruity/flower aroma that it makes the beer sweet. This is a complex and great tasting IPA that I would drink over and over.

Note: The 2013 vintage is Amarillo hops not Cascade. Aroma is tropical and grapefruit. Pale gold in color, lighter than similar IPAs. Overall, great beer
