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.

Decent Pale Ale. There was nothing very notable here, but it does go down smooth and drinkable. Could be a good session beer.

kazooka (55) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Light floral aroma. Hazy, light golden color with off-white head. Light bodied, thin, malty sweetness with a tinge of citrus. Lightly carbonated with an abrupt sweet finish. Highly drinkable, albeit thin, and seemingly light on the hops for a pale ale. I was expecting more.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2010
pours pale yellow-orange with thin lacing white head, floral hop aromas and a potent hoppy taste with a crisp bite and mild bitter finish, overall drinkable and not offensive in any way.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Pours light orange amber with an off white head. Aroma is citrusy, slightly earthy hop, with a little bit of caramel. Flavor is full of fresh citrus and tropical fruit hop flavor. Good stuff.

RKanis (152) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slight malt with a hint of citrus hops. Taste is citrus with a mildly bitter hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a little on the watery side. Not a bad pale ale but not as hoppy as I like.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Served on draft at TGI Fridays. Light orange in color, no head, no lacing. Orange, citrus hops in the nose, light bready malt aroma. Clean, effervescent, refreshing on the palate, with a lasting bitter and earthy finish. I enjoyed the orange, citrus hops. It reminded me of a less hoppy version of the Centennial IPA. Worth drinking again.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is grassy and floral hops. Taste up front is grassy and a bit of pine hops, with some biscuity sweetness that end with a slight hop bitterness. A good drinkable APA!

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours orange with gold and tan highlights, a faint haziness (mostly brilliant though), and a thin white head that leaves beaten-egg-white-like lace on the glass. Aroma is full of bitter citrus, with notes of toasted bread and impressions of over-cooked fruitcake. Flavor starts bready and dry with touches of honey and bitter hops. Strong yet sublime bitter hop flavor - lightly vegetal, grapefruity - through to the finish. Finish is dry and bitter with hints of malt sweetness and light biscuity malts. Mouthfeel is briskly carbonated with medium body. Overall, a very dry pale ale - tasty and drinkable, but a little too dry for me - a hint more sweetness and/or malt character would have provided a little better balance. I think the hop character is a bit muted, too - it is very hoppy, but something feels restrained, like the hops weren’t picked at the peak of freshness or maybe I just expect more late hop character...

12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Light orange color, decent head. Dry, slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor is slightly bitter, crisp finish. Not a bad beer at all, just not a lot going on for me.
