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.

Tap at brewery. Amber color with medium white head. Aroma was good combo of hop and sweet. Flavor was good complex of malt and hops. Finish was good and lasting.

Bottle. Large Cascade hop aroma, all sorts of citrus orange and a strange lime smell as well. Flavor is straight caramel malts and cherry cascacde. Very parched and dry palate, starchy.

Pretty nice beer. Flavor is bready and somewhat fruity. I like a little more caramel in pales usually, but this is very nice and enjoyable.

Ever so slightly hazed light amber body, topped by a frothy off-white head. The aroma is floral with light soil and citrus. The flavor is medium sweet, citrus hops, floral hops, bready malt, and a good bit bitter. A pretty big APA. Medium body, lasting hoppy bitter finish. An above average APA.

Like biting into an orange. I would consider this an excellent session beer. Excellent on all levels. Gets "The League of Strange Beer Drinkers" seal of approval.

Pours golden yellow with a small white head. Small citrus aroma. Light taste with hop characteristics. Great session beer.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Light gold and orange color with a large white head. Aroma is a massive pine and orange peel for an APA. Crisp and refreshing aroma with a hint of the malt. The taste is much lighter with hops than I would have expected. Hints of oranges and some hearty bread. Also some pine in the finish. A nice APA that would be worth revisitiing.

a cloudy golden color w/ a thing white head and nice hints of carbonation bubbles. scent carried hopps, citrus, and a touch of sweet malts. the palate was fiarly light a touch malty nothing special here. Flavor was of light malt, with a fairly easy flavor and a nice hoppy undertone with some other hints of citrus maybe orange but a bit more bitter. overall a great light hopped beer. thanks to blake for this one

this beer plays like a small beer: dry and bitter. light color, thin head, bright and sunny, filtered, handful of medium sized bubbles. malt is barely discernable, bitterness is too high relative to the malt , flavor hops are subdued, aroma hops are supercharged and seem to exacerbate the dryness. i think they may have tried too hard. as an aside, it’s too bad that here in chicago, only 150 miles from Grand Rapids, this beer is $9.49 a 6 pack. i mean, it’s good, but not Dogfish good. it’s maybe goose island good. the price should be $7.99 tops.
