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.

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.

Bottle. Orange malt aroma. Light amber coloer with moderate head. Orange caramel malt flavor with light pine hops finish. A very good, quaffable beer.

Surprisingly, never rated this. Light. Refreshing. Medium hops. Goes down well - even when the baby is crying in the distance. Well done.

Had on tap at Founders. A yellowish appearance, somewhat cloudy. Aroma slightly sweet, lightly bitter, very floral. A sweet aftertaste for a pale ale.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 2, 2008
12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a white head. Somewhat sweet nose of biscuit and orange, a bit bready. Citrusy orange and light grapefruit flavors, some light caramel. Nice spiderweb lace. Good pale.

jezmez68 (402) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Light orange in color, somewhat of a head, didn’t pour a full glass as I was sharing with 3 others. Not a huge nose, just a basic smell of hops. Overall a pretty average pale ale.

ilovedarkbeer (2340) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pretty weak. Pours a pale orange color with a medium sized bubbly head. Smooth hoppy and dry taste with a short finish and medium body. Nothing really special but still decent.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle: Another above average from Founders. Not nearly as good as their Harvest Ale, but a good pale ale. Pours with a full head and aroma of hops. Flavor is a little light for a pale ale in my opinion, but not bad. Citris is a little too weak. Good beer.

illkarate (115) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2007
12oz bottle. Big, off-white head, excellent lacing. Nice influence from the cascade hops, elements of citrus, pepper, orange peel. Packs a bit of a punch at 6.2%. Seems almost like an IPA, but it’s too smooth in the finish. That said, I definitely like it. Good offering, very good for the style.
