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.

Theydon_Bois (10615) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binny’s South Loop) - 05/11/12. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges. Caramel malt dominates the nose backed up by hops, citrus and floral tones. Tastes of caramel malt, tea bags, hops, orange, sugared candy. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Decent enough APA.

Draft pour at Mtc Office. Poured hazy orange gold which settled to clear with nice white head 1/4 inch thick. Scent of floral pleasant. Initial taste of grapefruit/citrus with some mild hops bitterness. Ok drink, but not special.

davidezdonz (2) - , HONG KONG - MAR 3, 2015 does not count
A 355ml bottle poured into a La Chouffe tulip glass. Bottle says best before 4th March 2015 so not exactly fresh, but tried a few days before best before date. Smelled of grassy, pine, mango and citrus. Poured a cloudy orange/copper with some floating residue, small head with very little retention. Taste starts off crisp and grassy with very light bitter taste, ends with some caramel and alcohol. Dry with nice carbonation. Overall feels dry but goes down easy. Also a bit disappointed with the alcohol appearing at the end.

kevinator (1117) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
This was the Nitro version. Faint floral hop aroma with pale malt. Medium weight and smooth mouthfeel from the nitro. Golden straw color. Nice malt upfront with some sweetness and a nice bitterness to the finish. Good all-around beer.

Bottle@Artturi, Tampere, Finland. Decent, quite light APA with a hint of floral, earthy flawors with dry hops. Nothing special.

Bottle from Trembling Madness in York. My least Fav from founders. Not as hoppy or citrusy as their others

TET (1867) - FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
A slightly orange-yellow beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma has caramel, generic citrusfruits, some tropical fruits and wood. Taste has peaches, some wood, medium bitterness or less. Medium bonied, nice carbonation, easy to drink. Even the markings in the neck are disappeared, the wooden notes indicates that the bottle is quite old. Anyway, easy to enjoy and tasteful enough.

SG111 (303) - New York, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy light orange golden color. Small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is lemon, hops, cream soda, wheat, malt balance. Flavor is malty biscuit, cream, lemon hop bitterness, slight coriander. Slight hop bitterness. Overall very well balanced. But a little too conservative for my taste. This beer is good. But it is not exceptional.

DraftDodger (249) - - FEB 14, 2015
Copenhagen 11/1 2015. 35,5 cl bottle from SuperBest. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Sharp fruity slightly perfumed aroma. Citrus, grapefruit and a little peach. Medium low carbonation. Taste is rather bitter and dry. Only a bit of the peachy sweetness from the aroma. Fine pale ale - but a but to the bitter side.

Clear golden with a dense almost yellow head. Nice lacing all the way down. Aroma of honney, yeast and grain. The taste is dry with grapefruit dominating, floral avd fresh fruit. Aftertase of grapefruit.
