COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the Cascadian ale brewed for the season of celebrations. Very pale and full bodied with a rich flavor imparted by Pale and Honey malt and assertively friendly hop character. The hop profile is quite distinct, featuring 100% Yakima Chinook hops in the kettle for bittering, flavor and aroma. In fact, this is the hoppiest beer yet from the Mighty Fish Brewers, and perhaps the hoppiest Winter seasonal you’ll have the pleasure to taste this year.

Bottle from Total Wines, Sterling VA. Deep gold with a slight white head. Big citrus fruits, a hint of earthy spice, warming alcohol in the finish. Good.

I make it a habit not to buy anything that is labeled organic. Luckily for this beer, it was not so labelled or I never would have tried it. Aroma stands out inthis beer as it does with the Fish IPA. Probably uses Willamette finishing hops.

Pours amber with short lasting lacy white head. Aroma of subtle citrus. Medium body, with a dry bitter finish. Flavors of grapefruit. Aftertaste is a lingering bitterness.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12oz bottle - The beer pours out a hazy orange body, 1" small white head. Moderately hopped, nicely balanced. Soft malty sweetness, some grapefruit-like hops come up. Flavor is sweeter up front with a nice bitter grapefruit finish. Easy drinking.

HighlanderOne (985) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Poured from bottle. Promising aroma of hops and spiced malt. Good lookin partly cloudy gold. I taste piney and citrus hops with pepper, grass and malt. Feels a bit astringent at first but it mellows quickly. Interesting and enjoyable.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange with white head. Floral aroma with a bit of tropical fruit. Full bodied with much hop. Finish is like a strong ale.
Earlier Rating: 10/19/2008 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle. Poured orange gold with thin white head. Moderate lacing. Floral and citrusy aroma. Hoppy flavour. Balanced with some sweetness to balance the hop. Lasting middle of the tongue finish.

mikedR (1072) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2013
IPA-like winter warmer. Think low-bitterness IPA with winter warmer spices. Unusual to say the least, but the jury is still out on whether straddling these two styles makes sense. B/B-

marcus (6304) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours cloudy amber with a modest beige head and a honey aroma. There is a medium-bodied toffee flavor with a bittersweet honey and citrus finish. An interesting brew.
