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. Youíll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Light golden color, medium sized white head. Muted grassy hop aroma overwhelmed by a grainy character. Some floral hop tones, but flavor is mainly a grainy malt flavor with a DMS flaw. Finish is slightly watery. Mouthfeel is crisp and thirst quenching.

Pour is a hazy tan with a small white head. Aroma is deffinatly hops but they are very weak. Flavor is very zesty and citrus for a pale ale and the hops donít really stand out. Referishing on a warm summer night is the best time for this beer and calling this a "lawn mowin" beer is right on.

Bottle, bought cold at Founders. Labeling now goes further into described the beer being dry hopped with Cascade. A pretty pale pour, with a good frothy head. Hops are well-mannered. More of a bit of citrus than the promised flowery taste. But still well matched to the maltís lightness. Crisp, not overbearing in hops... Hmm, itís kind of heady, too.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2005
12 oz bottle pours a hazy bright copper with a small white head that leaves some lacing in my glass. Citrus grapefuit-piney aroma, typical hoppy flavors of grapefruit, lemon and pine. Medium bodied with a crisp carbonated mouthfeel that finishes bittter, an average but very drinkable APA.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2005
One of the stranger paleís Iíve tried, with a VERY dry flavor. Hops and other flavors arenít too apparent at first, but really come on during the latter half of the beer (after you get used to the dryness). Decent overall.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottled. Juicy, fresh hop aroma, fruity and floral, with notes of pineapple, lemon, grass and some faintly sweet maltiness. Light-medium golden color, slightly hazed, with a fine, thin head. Flavor is certainly balanced towards the hoppy end of the spectrum, again fruity and flowery with plenty of citrus and juicy hop resin throughout. There is some countering malt towards the finish, contributing some toasty, grainy sweetness, and the overall effect is not one of excessive bitterness at all but of balance. Medium bodied, palate is smoothly effervescent. A tasty American Pale.

Yellowish gold with medium white head. Aroma has malt and hops. Nice carmel malt aroma that mixes well with Cascade hop aroma. Some sweetness and citrus hops. Nice body, light carmel malts produce a slightly creamy character. Citrus hops are both fruity and spicy. Nicely balanced, some sweet malt and a mild hop mix nicely.

english pint / not bad for an american pale ale, which is good since american pale ale is a boring style for me / notes: biscuit, medium caramel, high lemon/citrus, light sour, light bitter, light sweet, not salty, not really piney, floral... / good.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Quite liked this. Not a fan of pale ales but this was good. Golden color with frothy off-white head. Malty sweetness, citrus hops, floral tones in the nose. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was a blend of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Nice mix. Refreshing and crisp.

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is wonderfully citrusy, flowery, and bready. Appearance is a pristine white head that diminishes pretty quickly yet still remains. Very good lacing. A copper kettle colored body thatís opaque. Flavor is bitter hoppy, piney, caramelly sweet, citrusy. Definitely can tell its dry hopped. Palate is surprisingly pretty full, lively, and bitter.

Note: the fresher the bottle is, the more wonderful this beer is. Iíve had REALLY fresh ones and theyíre stupendous. Iíve let it sit for a couple of months and you can tell the hops died down. Iím basing my rating on the fresh one. The less fresh it is, the less youíll be wowed.slick feel,
