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.

12oz bottle thanks to Argo0: Pours to a slightly hazy orange-amber colored body with a medium white head that lasts. The aroma is medium bitter grapefruit, though it’s not as assertive as say Alpha King in the hops department. There’s some lightly sweet apple, light malts, mild pine, and hints of caramel in the background. The taste is fresh light malts, citrus, grapefruit, flowery hop cones, I can definitely taste the high AA content without the beer being overly bitter. I seem to taste the dry-hopping in the finish here, with some very floral, bitter, fresh hops coming through at the very end. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, bitter and flavorful, yet very drinkable. Nice.

Cloudy orange. Lightish body. Slightly metallic. Sweet cake and bread dough in the malts. Somewhat drying. Nice and flowery hop aromas. Rather drinkable.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Pours an amber color with thick off-white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, pine, caramel, and floral hops. Favor is strong of the floral hops that give way to the citrus. Not quite as bitter as I was expecting from the nose. A little dissapointed in this one.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 29, 2006
Nose of pine, spruce, citrus, resin, and flowers. Pours a sparkling golden straw. The enormity of the tight, white frothy head goes beyond mere words, and is fully lasting with great lacing. The balanced flavor is toasty and bready. Moderate acidity in the middle leads to a spicy bitterness at the finish. The crisp light palate is soft and dry.

screigh (483) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Poured a light copper or dark golden depending on how you might look at it. Lots of floaters. Big fluffy head with some lasting power. Didn’t notice any lacing. Very resin like aroma, maybe a little pine. I was expecting a bit more flavor from the aroma but it wasn’t there. Seems very thin with little mouthfeel. Seemed a bit tart and a real lack of pale ale flavor.

Bottle from Zathrus13.Thanks Jeff Very cloudy murky brew. Nose is piney and resiny. This was a bitter brew with lots of the piney hops flavor on the tongue.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Pour deep hazy orangey amber with a head that makes me a little nervous...explosive when poured...took almost 5 minutes to pour one bottle...smell is grapefruit with subtle piney overtones...just kidding...not subtle...very citric...taste is sweet and malty up front, with lots of bittering grapefruit flavor throughout...not bad...slightly cloying finish...

From a 12oz. twist cap stubby brown bottle with a blurb about the APA on the neck label, no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a chill hazy amber golden with a fluffy, clingy white head that settled into a thin, skim-like foamy lacing that left sticky rings, good carbonation. Had a simple piney and citric zesty nose with a buried buttery caramel maltiness. A crisp, hop textured and a light creamy smooth mouth feel, good drinkability. Big dry hop taste, a soft pineyness, citric zesty and leafy, mild, rolling on the tongue bitterness, a buttery caramel maltiness underneath and a leafy and hayish dry finish, very tasty. A nice dry hopped APA from Fouinders, very satisfying, tasty and quite quaffable.
