UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Draught. Clear golden-orange color with a foamy white head that laced the glass. Smells of light flowery hops and biscuity malt. Subdued bread malt flavor with a touch of citrusy hops. Pretty good.

Bottle- Pours a light gold color, with lots of head. Not too fond of the flavor. I couldn’t describe it, another rater said lemon grass, I’ll have to agree. Not terrible, but definitly not among the better pales.

In the bottle at the Max & Joe’s Tavern Michigan Beer tasting (11/21/6). Orange gold with a quick white head. Neat medicinal hop aroma. Finish is of a strong drying hop bitterness. The hop tartness of distinct citrus oil is clearly evident.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2010 pours a yellowish gold light body with some sediment. has a huge three finger white head and descent lacing.aroma is very small malt hops with a little caramel. flavor is caramel malt with small hops really sweet for a pale ale. not my thing with it being so sweet an average pale ale was expecting a little more hops. re-rate better bottle went from a 2.8 to a 3.4. has some orange and orange peel citrusy aroma and flavor. much better!

Significant white head on grapefruit copper. One dimension understated IPA based on cascade hops, malted. A good though drying taste from all the malt.

No. 775. Bottle. Yeah, this is all about the cascade. Rich golden pour with a frothy white head. Citrus and grapefruit nose spills over into the taste, which is nicely malty and moderately bitter. Dry spicy end lasts for a good while. Medium-full body. Nice baseline PA for comparison, wonderful go-to/stock beer.
