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.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy amber color with a nice sized white head and decent lacing. Fragrant aroma of hops. Taste includes grapefruit, a hint of pine, floral and earthy notes. Solid body and good balance. One of the better APAs I’ve had recently.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2007
[Draft @ Capone’s] Poured a lightly hazy, orange amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, light pine, and a bit of toast as well. Taste of citrus, light tobacco, a bit of nuts, pine, toffee, more toasted malts, and an average mouthfeel.

Light orange, slightly hazy body with huge white head. Grapefruit, pine and biscuit nose. Flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. They are nicely woven together so that there isn’t much watery texture between one taste and the other. Lively carbonation — in fact, a tad too much carbonation which results in a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium body. Finish is mostly hops. Thought this was a comfortable beer, certainly more muted than many APAs.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Clear amber pour, medium lasting off white head, fair lace. Pine , orange peel, grain in the aroma. Medium body, slightly resinous, clean mouthfeel, light carbonation. Malty, with some sweet nuttiniess, substantial grapefruit bitterness that comes on quickly and lingers.

Light copper color with small white head. Not much lacing to it, but who’s complaining. Very pine/resin oriented aroma with a few subtle hints of honey and malt. Very dry, piney hop taste with little sweetness initially. As it warmed the sweetness came around a bit and balanced out nicely. I can definitely see this as a good summer/lawn-mower beer. Founders has yet to disappoint me.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Amber color. Smell of hops, malt, grass, lemons, honey, flowers and candy. Taste of roasted malt, hops, citrus, flowers, bread and a nicer hop bitterness at the end.

LinusStick (2855) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2007
In a blind taste test I would have labeled this an English pale ale or a bitter. Aroma was all grassy hops. Pour was a meduim gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was thin, dry and moderately carbonated. All grassy and earthy hops with just a hint of malt, but barely noticeable. Nice.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Orange gold color with a small but persistant head. Some haze, which is pretty typical with a dry hopped beer. Citrus (orange, tangerine), citrus pith, and floral aroma. Taste is tangerine, floral, mildly earthy, with a light malt base of caramel and a pleasant bitterness. The finish is moderately bitter (for the style) and very drinkable. A real nice pale ale, not as over the top and aggressive as some west coast "pale ales" but a more traditional example that certainly doesn’t lack bitterness.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Cloudy honey amber body with a small offwhite head. Hop aromas of grass, melon, and pine. Medium body with a nice citrusy hops bitterness throughout. Lots of pulpy pink grapefruit notes. One of my favorite APA’s.

draft. pale golden color with sparkly white head. Good hoppy taste but lacked in malt charater. I tried to "battle" it against FFF’s Alpha King and they are just totally different. More comparable to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but not as dry and I think a little better.
