5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tap at brewery. Clear golden pour with a steady white head. Aroma is dank floral hops with pine and a bit of citrus over a dry, biscuity malt backbone. Impressive pungency on the aroma. Taste is clean, dry hop bitterness with balancing dry bready malt and a spike of pine/bitterness into the finish. Mouthfeel is spot f-ing on for the style. Brilliant beer. Flawless.

A perfect Cali pale ale...citrus beginning gives way to a balanced bitterness...a smooth drop off for a finish. add to the fact that it is only 147 calories, and this is my go to session beer.

A near perfect light ale with a subtle but extremely refreshing flavor. This is the perfect summer afternoon brew.

can @ salone del gusto (papazian event). It pours light amber with a good head on top. Medium body, good bitterness well balanced. A great beer!!!

I like the hoppiness. Visited the brewery while on vacation and loved the beer and decided to buy some to bring back. A very good beer if you like a hoppier pale ale.

oooo-eeeee.......das a miiighty fine brew! Fragrant fresh hop nose, nice head that dissipates somewhat. verrry very drinkable. Friendly beer. Looks great in my goblet: in the wide part a tarnished gold, and in the thin part a nice yellow gold. Good mouth and a flavor that matches the aroma. Satisfying, yet alluring. Maybe a hair thiner than Sierra Nevada, but better flavor. Got this bottle in a beer a the month. Wish we could get it in La Crosse.

So clean, crisp, and refreshing. Strong citrus hop flavor with a pleasant aroma. My favorite pale ale!

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!

Bottle at GBBF and one at home. This stuff totally blew me away, like i sampled one at the fest and had to buy one to bring home. Aroma is soo fresh and hoppy, citrus hop resin, leafy green hops, good underlying pale biscuity malt character. Taste is similar, quite a bitter chap too. Like id happily sit and drink like 10 of these every weekend and i wouldnt get bored. Excellent! Lets just hope thats what they are makign a cask vertion of for the wetherspoon fest!

12 oz bottles: Peachy color, maybe 12 SRM, bubbly without lasting head. Aroma is honey-sweet and gushing with Cascade dry-hopped goodness. Flavor leads with honey, toffee and berry jam, balanced with crisp hop bitterness spot-on for style. Medium light body with sustained finish that confirms this pale best of style.
&#40;Flavors muddle a bit as beer warms past cellar temps&#41;.
