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.

Pours a light copper color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is grain, astringency, and citrus hops. Flavor is grainy, astringent, and a nice citrus hop finish. I think it was slightly infected.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Pours a cloudy golden color with foamy white head. Aroma is very hoppy with a nice malt backbone. Flavor very similar to aroma; pretty malty for a pale ale with a lot of floral hops.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2008
On tap at Vintage Estates. A light golden color with a small fizzy head and a little bit of lacing. A crisp floral hop nose with some grassy pilsner smell. A really light flavor with some grainy character. Not really that hoppy. I was expecting a little more for it being dry hopped. A slight floral sweetness. A nice refreshing light body.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2008
On tap at Vintage Estates, courtesy of Nuts. Raw grain aroma and a bit of musty character, with light hoppiness. Mild grassy notes, otherwise a mild aroma. Golden hazy amber with thin white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with mild acidity, mild grainy character. Clean overall, with a mild hoppy-bitter finish. Decent pale ale.

ths beer was excellent. It had everything it should have had. Light crisp color, heady hops aroma with a hops bite that some IPA’s don’t have. Crisp dry smooth hops. great beer. If this is available....TRY IT.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bob McFarland Liquors in McFarland, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that has some good retention and some spotty lacing. Aroma of a good balance of multi-grain malt, citrus zest hops, a touch of fruity apples and pears with a light cardboard. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of mostly citrus zest, some light sweet golden grain malt and a little pear in the background. Finish is a mild bitterness that lingers a while after the finish. Nice sweet aftertaste in the finish.

12 oz bottle. Hazy golden orange with a big white head. Floral, citrus hop aroma. Nice malt flavor with the floral hops showing through as well. Very hoppy for an APA, but very drinkable.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Poured a light golden with a small white head. Aroma was of fresh hops due to the dry hopping. Tasted real crisp and clean with a very nice balance of hop, grain, and alcohol. Light body made it easy to drink as well. One of the better pale ales I have had. I would buy this again.

trade extra from Emacgee. This was a minor gusher, with foam pouring out for a minute or two after I opened the bottle. Huge, frothy off white head. Aroma: citrus and floral hops, with touches of sweet pale malts. Taste is citrus hops over a sweet pale malt base, with light touches of honey. Overall well attenuated with only hints of sweetness. touches of metal which slightly detracts. Finishes with a light honey sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. a decent APA.
