Nice amber body capped by a moderate white head. Citrusy hop aroma foreshadowing a wonderfully crisp hoppy flavor balanced by just a hint of sweet malts in the finish. Good smooth mouthfeel. I really like a well-hopped pale ale, and I think Iíll have to add this to my favorites.

Bright, frothy head, amber color. Aroma: full-on citrus, and precious little else. Smooth, easy-drinking, and, dammmit, if I can ever think of anything else to recommend this one by. Itís fine, and forgetabble, and itís got that great Ralph Steadman art going for it...sigh...itís okay...I geuss...

12oz bottle BBD??? Hoppy nose, head dies. Much more grassy/piney/resiny than I would expect from Cascade. Light bodied, thin, bitter beer with some malt. An OK beer, just lacks distinction, and has a bad lingering taste, either its nasty hops or metal.

Big hoppy nose from this bright orange beer. thin head gone quickly. Decent caramel sweetness from malts and generous cascade hoppiness at finish, better tha I expected.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle. Tastes like SNPA if it was watered down by 20%. This is drinkable, but there are better APAís out there.

Good Pale, although the first bottle caught me by surprise. It is not too overpowering and goes down smooth.
