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.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins for $3.99. Pours a bit hazy orange appearance with a nice, lasting, off white head. Citrusy, grapefruit/orange, a bit sweet, slightly spicy hoppy, a bit earthy aroma. A bit tangy/sweet, toasty malty, bready, lightly bitter, orange fruity flavor. A bit syrupy. I didn’t enjoy this as much as some pale ales from Epic.
