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.

In a blind taste test I would have labeled this an English pale ale or a bitter. Aroma was all grassy hops. Pour was a meduim gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was thin, dry and moderately carbonated. All grassy and earthy hops with just a hint of malt, but barely noticeable. Nice.

Orange gold color with a small but persistant head. Some haze, which is pretty typical with a dry hopped beer. Citrus (orange, tangerine), citrus pith, and floral aroma. Taste is tangerine, floral, mildly earthy, with a light malt base of caramel and a pleasant bitterness. The finish is moderately bitter (for the style) and very drinkable. A real nice pale ale, not as over the top and aggressive as some west coast "pale ales" but a more traditional example that certainly doesn’t lack bitterness.

Cloudy honey amber body with a small offwhite head. Hop aromas of grass, melon, and pine. Medium body with a nice citrusy hops bitterness throughout. Lots of pulpy pink grapefruit notes. One of my favorite APA’s.

draft. pale golden color with sparkly white head. Good hoppy taste but lacked in malt charater. I tried to "battle" it against FFF’s Alpha King and they are just totally different. More comparable to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but not as dry and I think a little better.

A very good pale ale. Not much for malt notes, slight hints of bread. Very hoppy for a APA, tastes very much of Cascades. Overall a very good beer.

Bottle sampled. Pours hazy golden with decent size white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, and floral hops. The flavor is sweet, fruit, citrus, and small hoppy finish. Good brew.

This was an average pale ale and nothing that I would really seek out on a rare basis. Worth a try if you can get it locally.

lol. "the perfect lawn movin’ beer" Thats pretty funny. Had 12oz of this great ale in a glass at the brewery yesterday. almost everything i expected, but I almost was looking for more hops. maybe because i just had a centennial before it, but this just felt like a weaker one. still good though, i should’ve tried this first.

A nice homage to SNPA and why mess with a good thing. A well balanced citrus hops aroma with mildly sweet caramel malts. Highly drinkable, clean aftertaste, but at 6% there wont be too many bottles in the session.
