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. Youíll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Very earthy (as most Founderís beers tend to be) and floral. The hops in this fine pale ale grab you by the pallet and make you scream. The alcohol content of this brew is not too much not too little. Itís right in the middle where you wouldnít be too afraid to have a few but just enough to keep you from having too much. I recommend this beer as an "after work, i need to chill after a hard day, and very long bike commute". If you donít believe, give it a swill!

A new and impressive brewery out of Grand Rapids. The Founderís boys do a more than good job.

Has a citrus, hoppy aroma and a hoppy, slightly bitter taste with a hint of citrus. Smooth beer, very enjoyable.

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.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 My palate loves Cascade hops and like the commerical description states its a testament to Cascade. A perfect relaxing after-work beer. Plenty of floral citrus spice, hazy golden in a pint, nice head, balanced thoroughout. Very well made ale from the folks in Michigan, very well made indeed.

I usually go for something darker, but this was damn good beer. The dry hopping really gives it a great smell and a complex yet delicate flavor.

TourDeBeer (104) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2013
aromas: cascade hops, floral. Good carbonation, slight sweetness, slight bitters and slight spice. Hazy gold, white head good retention. A fantastic APA when compared to the guidelines all those loosers below me need education

Pour is golden with a huge rocky white head with plenty of lacing. Very attractive. Big fresh aroma of grass and dry hops. The flavor is surprisingly sweet. Sweet and nice clean hop background. Very interesting and different. Excellent.
