COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

decent pale with a lot of floral hops in the nose. the taste is also of very floral resinous hops that finishes bitter with citrus.

courtesy of frampin. pours hazy golden, white head. Aroma is sweet, reminded me of tea leaves, hoppy, good nose of citrus/citronelle. Siple but effective Taste, citrus hops with notes of freshness - mint - citrus and floral thick palate, light bitter finish that remains very enjoyable and balanced

Hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is lightly orangey with a touch of chewy dry herbal character. The flavour is slightly chewy. Lightly sweet with a light chewy sweetness. This bottle tastes like it has quite a bit of age on it. Meh, not as good as it could or should be.

Hazy orange gold, nice fluffy white head. Nose is slightly floral and very grassy, lemon, loads of pale malt via biscuit. Flavor is a little more bitter, crisp and light with more biscuit, sweet lemon, and slightly grassy hop bitterness. Not bad, probably as close to a pilsner as I’ve had in an APA.

12 oz bottle. Fairly light and basic aroma, yet pleasant. Good amount of hops for a pale, yet not as much of a floral cascade as advertised. More grassy earth hop notes along with some cereal malts. Good pour, with a nice sized clingy cream bubble head, fairly cloudy body, and bright tangerine in color. Similar to the aroma, the flavor profile is quite basic, but very pleasant. More citrusy floral cascade hops in the flavor than aroma, but earthy notes are also there as well, and a good yet standard grain and pale malt backing. Slight acidic fruit flavor are also present. The feel throughout is nice, but the finish isnt as quenching as one would like. Pretty solid beer, standard pretty much the whole way through, but done well, and that makes it a simple and enjoyable brew.

12 ounce bottle from Bruisin Ales in Asheville. Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Fair head retention and good lacing. Aroma of toffee and hops. Taste is leafy hops with some toffee and citrus notes, particularly grapefruit. Medium bodied.

I think this beer is great. It looks, smells and tastes great. This is probably one the fullest flavor, every day type beer that I’ve ever had, especially when compared to Sierra Nevada. Cheers!

mostly metal taste upfront with harsh bitter white rind on grapefruit hit. hidden sugar it is barely discernable from there. yeah a touch of malt and caramel i will say i was mildly disappointed from whom i feel is a premium brewer. refreshing and a little chalky dry eehhh. second bottle had much lower metal taste actually it was hardly noticed and it had just a bit more of a sweet malt flavor...

Nice light orange in color. Unexpected color. Floural hops are present. This beer seems to be good. Decent floral IPA taste. A rather weak beer. Not one of my favorites. Was expecting more out of this beer. Again, there is a hop presence, but just not a great one. Overall, a weak IPA, but apparently APA. Just a middle of the road type of beer.

This was surprisingly dry. It came across almost like a pilsner in flavor because of that. There’s that pale malt flavor that keeps it from being entirely pilsner like, but it’s definitely dry for a pale ale. Less hop aroma than expected from the "dry hopped" moniker.
