A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle. This medium-bodied pale ale has a distinctive floral hop aroma and refreshing citrus flavor. You’ll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Draft at The Haze. Hazy orange-tan color with a big, soapy, and steady head. Crisp and refreshing, this is certainly a superb APA. Mild soapy hop tones with some seawater crispness. Medium bodied. No syrup or awkward tones. Clean, but full of flavor. World Class session beer.

12oz bottle, thanks Jon. Pours a hazy darker golden with some lemon tint to it and a perfect uniform slightly off white head. Crisp yet light and balanced nose with cracker, grass, pine, floral and citrus. Somewhat chewy feel with lively carbonation. Very light ’crackery’ malt, light balanced pine and citrus hops with floral undertones. Easy drinking pale.

Pour is a clear gold body with a thin lasting head. Grassy hops offset by some caramel sweetness, mild citrus, pineapple, dry ending.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
4/28/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is golden orange with a hugr fluffy white head and lots of floaties. The aroma is deep earthy hops that border on catty, and the flavor is similar. I’m thinking this is a bit of an old bottle, but can’t find a date because it’s from a singles rack. Bah.

(cheap) growler fill from Whole Foods- Bowery. This, for me, was the perfect food pairing beer. Sweet caramel, well carbonated, light and sessionable. Slight citrus hops to provide a balance, but not overwhelming. Really helped wash down several different types of food.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2010
Pale gold color with a white pillow head and noticeable lacing. A very aromatic flower bouquet on nose with a touch of lightly toasted hop. This is a crisp medium bodied pale ale that has a nice balance and enough sweetness to keep the dry, bitterness in check. A very smooth drinking ale.

Copper colored with a 1 inch white head. Malty nose.All malt taste. I thought pale ales were supposed to hoppy. Well, this one is not so much. Super nutty, sweet, and malty. Go crazy you belgian freaks!

12oz bottle from Castleton Wine & Spirits, Indianapolis. Pours a hazy orange. Nice citrus hop aroma. Good malt body, with a nicely balanced hop finish. Good beer.

Guerde (1288) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2010
(bottle) Poured into a pint, this beer appears hazy with a light gold/orange hue and a medium white head which recedes to a thin cap and adequate lacing. Aroma is full of cracked black pepper, baked bread (pretzel), ground mustard, and some earthiness as well. Hints of skunk appear, so I’m not sure how old this bottle is. Also a floral presence. Taste is salty initially, lightly bitter and piney, with some dry bread and lingering bitterness on the finish. Could be some orange zest and pith as well. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is restrained. A decent pale ale, but it pales (pun intended) in comparison to others that I’ve sampled within this style. Perhaps a fresher bottle would change my opinion.
