The Cascades (?) really kick you in the ass with this brew. These guys eased up on the aroma hops, it would seem, but dumped in lots of bittering hops. Oh well. Canít have it all. A nice effort.

Amber pour with a light white head. Nose is floral with a definate malty sweetness to it. Flavor doesnt live up to the nose though. Strange biscuity(?) flavor to it. Dont know about this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very clear honey-golden color with a large creamy head that stays with you to the end and leaves a lovely lace on the glass. Sweet and biting hop notes to the nose that makes it smell like a potential hop-monster; though, it really isnít. Fairly mellow and well balanced up front with some pepperyness toward the middle. Toward the end there is a ton of hop bitterness. The beer seems a bit light and watery in the mouth.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy and toasty aroma. White head, not very big but it lasts, golden colored. Hoppy flavor, a little thin, then some fruitiness in the finish. I drank some Red Seal right before this, so it feels a little thin on my palate. Overall an enjoyable beer, but not as good as their IPA or their double IPA.

This beer rocks.
This hazy, golden ale smells great... very spicey and a bit acrid. The beer is perfectly balanced and is extremely fizzy & dry in the mouth. WAY CARBONATED. A great summer beer.

This pours good and clear and has a nice amber color with a frothy head that smells like raisons and pears. The taste is pretty light and balanced with a small hoppy floral finish. If you like Pale Ale, this is a nice one.
