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.

The body is a light cloudy orange with a white head. The aroma is the expected grapefruit, bread and flowers. The taste is cinnamon toast with a little grapefruit. Decent.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the downtown brewpub. Pours a clear deep orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Light body with flavors of herbal hops, roast malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

DrSilverworm (6572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Taster on tap at GTMW. Totally hazy orange color, kind of vibrant. Thin off-white khaki head. Leaves decent thicker lace. Impressive, big grapefruity kind of creme citrus hop aroma up front. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Lightly spicy, some caramel malt, but flavor is impressively hop-forward. Medium to bigger body, kind of slick. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Solid hoppier pale ale, with a bigger malt base too. Drinks like 6.5% plus, bordering on IPA territory. Better than expected.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours a nice dark amber color, just a decent amount of off-white head. Pine and bread on the nose. Grassy, piney, and bready on the palate.

bartlebier (1802) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 19, 2014
(US 09/2012 backlog recollected in abstinence). Fliptop@Random burger/giant brat place in Georgetown, DC. Looks plain and watery, amber with a golden hue, but provided a fair sessional balance of everything you need in an APA: a subtle floral touch, some caramel malt, gentle lingering Cascade citrus rind bitterness. Quick drinker, ideal with and coincidentally appropriate to the same home state as my very salty "brat".

Ruby red color. Little head. Not much aroma. Very earthy flavor. Minimal hop taste. Much more prominent malt. Ok

On tap at the brewpub. Comes reddish gold with a decent white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, and floral. Taste is citrus, florals, malt, and caramel. Enjoyable.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft at the downtown brewpub. An orange-copper brew with a nice Brittanic head. Pleasant and rusty on the tongue. Malty with a mellow earthy bite, sticking with the British style. (#5132, 7/4/2013)

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured a clear amber / orange hue, with nice head and lacing. Firm tasting pale ale with a slight bitter after taste.
