3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Mostly clear golden ale with lots of floaties and a small, frothy, white head. Floral, estery nose with notes of fuzzy fruit, pear, orange peel, biscuit and pale/pilsener malts. Lightly sweet flavor up front, then woodsy and heavily bitter with a whisper of acidity. Medium to full-bodied and raspy with medium carbonation. Lengthy, tongue-numbingly bitter finish. This one was brewed and bottled by Jolly Pumpkin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub: This beer is a clear gold/amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Patchy lacing throughout. Cascade hops are easy to detect in the aroma in this one since they are the only kind. There is a touch of zesty citrus in the nose as well. Medium body with a citrusy hops flavor and a good malt base. The finish is moderately bitter hops and lingers awhile. A little one-sided at times, still a solid APA.

On tap: Grapefruit hop aroma. Light transparent amber with a small white head. Nice lacing. Light taste up front with a nice pine and grapefruit finish. More pine than grapefruit. Makes me think more of an IPA than APA.
