UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 355 ml bottle. Am10. From København, Denmark.
Hazy golden colour with big creamy off-white head.
Yeast and sweet fruity hops in aroma. Not that bitter and with some homebrew touch. Fry fruity hoppy flavour with some homebrew feeling all the way. Not that impressive APA after all.

Mild fruity hops, some malt and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is mild bitterness, oxygen, mild floral hops and sweet malt. Creamy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of citrussy, piney and grassy hops and some sweet and biscuity malt. Flavor is quite hoppy with some floral, citrussy, piney and grassy notes, i also get a decent amount of sweet and biscuity malts. You can deffinetly tell that it is hopped with cascade hops. The body is light to medium with a slightly dry and smooth mouthfeel. Overall a pretty good APA that is nicely balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle at the American styles tasting. Clear gold with a small but lasting white head. Lots of planty hop aroma with some grapefruit oil and lots of grass. Grassy hop flavors. Quite phenolic and spicy with a weird spice through the finish and a light malt backbone. Medium light body with lots of hop tannins. Just to much grassy hop-tannin action going on. I’m of the opinion that Sierra already perfected the cascade pale ale, so you’d might as well try attacking the problem from another angle...
