COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Squizzle (138) - Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours pretty, dark golden with little foam. Liked it better out of the bottle probably because it was colder. Good, but I wonít seek it out again. On the other hand, if it comes my way Iíll surely drink it. Hoppy for a pale.

maxwelldeux (3611) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. I find the nose extremely malty, which I didnít expect. Smells very toasty with a hint of spiciness underneath. Slight hint of hops up front in the taste, but the malts overpower it on the back end. Interesting brew.

Cask: Tangerine and grapefruit nose, subtle pine needle hints. Cloudy amber medium yellow head, good lacing. Soft carbonation. Orange peel, light grapefruit. Quaffable, decently hopped, good balance. Itís what you want in an APA. Versatile in food pairing.
