Made with classic Pacific Northwest Cascade, Centennial, Mt. Hood in the boil and dry hopped with more Cascade hops. Cascade aroma dominates the nose, so be sure to sniff it like a wine snob. Plenty of ultra premium Maris Otter malt and three specialty malts give the beer a nice smooth sailing biscuit like aroma and body, some sweetness, well balanced against 5.8% alcohol by volume.

Was a bit yeasty, probably due to being slightly shaken around. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hoppy APA, but not over powering good malty flavor not much of an after taste over all a good beer. Pours a nice full head about two fingers worth really holds up.

Aroma: citrus, passiion fruit, mango, caramel. Appearance: golden color, white head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs and pine), citrus notes, some caramel and roasted notes, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Drinkable PA, rather classical variation on PA than APA.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
22 oz bottle. (Texas Wine & Spirits) Carlsbad, CA.
Amber colour with a mid-size off-white head. The aroma is sweet piney and fruity hops, mild bitterness and malty sweetness. The flavour is fruity and citrusy hops, mild bitterness and sweet maltiness. Not necessarily super fresh bottle.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Quite enjoyable and flavorful. Two demerits. First, Way too high ABV for this style. Second, I seem to be detecting a slight alcohol burn.

Poured from a bomber it a amber color. Aroma of pine and resin. The taste has a grainy flavor with some citrus and more resin. Pretty good beer.

minihame2 (305) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 5, 2014
Brown, hazy body and a white head. Faint aroma with hops and pine notes. Watery mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation. Taste is also a bit weak with a little bit of bitterness in the end. Itís an easy beer and very drinkable.
