12oz bottle. Medium orange-yellow color with a small white head. Heavy citrus and pine Cascade hop aromatics. Citric metallic hop flavor dominates. Tinges of crystal malt peer through, provide some balance. Bracing bitterness in the finish, fades quickly to a residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly light, somewhat dry.

Bottled. Pours a pale, slightly hazy orange tone. Aroma is all floral hops. Crisp flavor, with a well balanced bittereness and floral tones. Nice finish too.

A great pale ale if you like a little cascade flower up your nose. If you don’t like cascade... don’t try it. But if you do you’ll love it. A taste sensation!

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 pale gold appearance. crisp hop flavor, citrus in the flavor with some small malt accents, toffee and some other shit. I love this kind of hoppy pale ale. finishes clean and crisp, bitter but not overdone. kind of one dimensional and a little lighter in the mouth than SNPA but this a good one!

A prickly bitterness is a good way to describe this. I like that sort of finish. Man, Piscator knows his stuff. thanks for sharing this with me. It was great

Gold. Some head. Hoppy aroma. Mild hoppiness with a good sharp taste midway through but doesn’t last.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled sample via presario. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Balanced aromas of citrus and slightly biscuit and caramel malts with some minor floral and spice notes. The light caramel flavors mix well with the mellow hop elements. There’s a bit of prickly bitterness on the finish that cleans up the finish quite nicely. Refreshing, and more complex than a lot of other pale ales.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden brown body with a heady froth of white bubbles. Aroma is nice. Floral hops softly grace the nose. Taste is recessed for a pale ale, a little too sweet for my liking. Vanilla undermines the palate here. Not a bad beer, but to me, its unbalanced and not drinkable on a repeated basis.
