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.

GT2 (8364) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Santa!!!! Pours a translucent orange with a thin, but rocky off-white head. Aroma is grassy, pilsener malts, Saaz hops, a bit of citrusm and then some really rich caramel shows through and something like Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Nothing like the grapefruit peel found in the Centennial IPA. Taste is hop forward: Saaz-like bitterness, a bit metallic, somewhat watery. Hmmmm. Not quite what I was expecting, but I am very thankful I got to try this seeing its distribution is a mystery (MI, OH only?). Thanks Santa!

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - DEC 11, 2009
bottle courtesy of tytoanderso. decent pale, nice hop presence but not very well balanced. mouthfeel is too macro, hops only appear in the aftertaste in not the best way imaginable, but not that bad.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, Wallingatan; 35 IBU, 5.4% ABV
Golden color. The aroma is initially grassy; it’s also a bit creamy and dusty, meaty; ah, there is some malt too. Medium-light body, with dry toffee flavor and strong bitterness; the hop brings only a very light fruity touch, and there is a rare rose flower aftertaste. I can’t see much of the promised Cascade, but it’s still a god thirst-quenching beer.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2009
On tap. Pour is cloudy golden color with small white head. Aroma is pleasant citrus hop aroma with some nice underlying maltiness. Mild pine hop as well. Flavor is true to nose and very refreshing. Solid and easy to drink, I like it.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2009
12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a slightly hazy gold with a sparse white head. Pretty subdued aroma of citrusy hops and some carmel malt. Solid malt base to this one with a crisp hop bite, but not a whole lot of bitterness. On the lighter side of medium body. Nice lingering dry finish from the hops, but not a mouth puckerer. Very drinkable, a solid Pale Ale.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2009
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Crisp and dry aroma of flowers, lemon-zest and grass with notes of lychee. Medium to light-bodied with notes of peaches and straw with a crisp medium-bitter finish of grass and lemon-zest.

GJF (1245) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2009
This is a very tasty pale, but not as unique as some of Founder’s other brews. It’s a soft, creamy beer with mostly citrus and floral hop flavors.

Trev (1929) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2009
medium gold pour with awhite foamy head Aroma is floral and light citrus hop with some biscuity malt under that. Flavour is more of the same. Floral hop dominates, some earthiness to it. Light maltiness.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a cloudy gold with plenty of sediments and a small white head that leaves a few bubbles at the surface and a thin white rim. Aroma is subtle, with earthy hops, citrus, grass, and malts. The flavor isn’t quite as quiet, with all of those elements along with straw, alcohol, honey, yeast, and stronger hops than the aroma. Light-medium bodied, bitter, and refreshing. Very nice APA.

Bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma is grassy, citrusy hops, and a little biscuity malt. Flavor is much the same with a nice long bitter hop finish.
