COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The full flavor of American ascade hops pours out at you from every angle, the result of adding hops 5 different times to the brew, including "dry-hopping". An underlying, rich malt flavor supports the crisp and floral hop bitterness to produce a thirst-quenching, flavorful brew.

Pour golden with a decent bit of head that doesn’t stick around for too long. Aroma is intensely hoppy with lots of citrus and floral notes. There is also a bit of malty sweetness and caramel present. Taste doesn’t disappoint but the finish is a bit weak. Overall a very session able beer and a standard for a night at the Great Dane

madvike (2660) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap in a big plastic cup at the Mallards game - Clear amber pour with a thin tan head. Nose is herbal light grassy hops, with sweey caramel malt. Not as clean as I’d like. Taste is pretty malty, sweet and light citrus. Not overly bitter, but kind of a muddled, bready maltiness. Smooth and well carbonated. Meh.

On tap at the East side Dane location, pours a golden/amber with a nice white head and lacing through out the glass, the aroma has a nice floral touch with some hops as well, the flavor has a nice crisp hop front end with a sweet finish of the malt, nice balance, blows the Paradise Pale Ale out of the water.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
A golden amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a smooth caramel malt with light floral hops, grassy, not bad. In mouth, a smooth crisp malt with light floral hops, very British. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

Enjoyable hoppiness with a finishing hint of sweetness. Tart but not too bitter. Nice looking ale with minimal head.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. Cascade hops, an Ok bitterness was delivered. Lacey, cloudy golden body. Like a lighter IPA. Carbonation right there. Hoppy aroma, 40 IBU. OK as a moderately hoppy beer, with 40 IBU and 5.2% abv.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tap at the brewpub in Wausau, WI. I was just not a huge fan of this one - looks like I might be in the minority on this. Golden pour with a white head. Nose was kind of like a scotch ale - a little sweatsock in here. Medium palate with noticeable carbonation. Taste was hops, bread/biscuit, and there’s that scotch ale flavor again.

On tap at downtown location. Strong cascade aroma. Very Hoppy, modeate bitterness. Unbalanced and a bit watery. Pretty good but one dimensional.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2011
8/14/11. On tap in the Madison airport. Pretty clear orange pour with a small, fluffy white head that laces plenty. Bold aroma of American hops with citrus, dankness, and a teensy hint of pine. Similar flavor with citrus, but a bolder pine aspect and more pronounced floral aspects. There’s also a touch of minerals/hard water in there as well. Not too shabby.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
On tap at the downtown brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed, golden orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is big florals and juicy citruses. Lots of oranges and some grapefruits with a light piney resin. Some sweeter caramels as well as a touch of bread. Flavor is similar. Lots of florals and some pines with a light resin. Light caramel sweetness to balance before a dry finish and moderate bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pale ale. Lighter, but tasty and easy drinking. Fairly well hopped and nicely balanced making this quite enjoyable.
