COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy, crisp, and citrusy, with an underlying malt character. Made by blending lots of malted barley, wheat, and a judicious quantity of Cascade hops. A "big" beer!

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is somewhat citrusy, with a bit of sweetness coming through as well. Taste is a bit sweet up front, with very little bitterness coming through, and a tad bit of citrus present.

Nice fruity hoppy aroma. Taste is the same. Mild malt with juicy hops as the star. Nice beer. Easy drinking.

Pour is clear dark amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is bready and doughy, piney hops and resin. Taste is doughy, some bread crust, pine and faint citrus with gentle bitterness. Body is rather full and creamy, moderate carbonation and a semi dry finish. Some malt sugars of caramel linger through a shorter finish.

Draft pour. Citrus aroma. Great balanced pale ale between bitterness and sweetness. Very flavorful. A lot of citrus flavors. Long finish. Very good.

From the bottle. Pours a very hazy light copper color, some head which dissipates fairly quickly. There’s a distinct graininess in the aroma, a little sweet doughy-wheat like which is then followed up by the classic Cascade hop aroma. Some citrus, but mainly grapefruit and old orange peel. Flavor up-front is medium caramel with some biscuit flavors, malty munich notes come through, some are rich and caramel-like, others more savory. There’s also a bit of a pastry-like and also nutty note to the malt. Finishes clean, not completely dry, but enough for the bitterness to balance. As early as five years ago I would have probably given this beer a much higher score, however because of the onslaught of new hop-variety driven iipas, it does not fare as well. Still though, solid.

On cask. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, pale malts, jam. Flavor of grassy hops, citrus hops, pale malts. Light, fruity, hoppy, very tasty. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

On tap, cloudy dullish yellow color. Nice head and great lacing. Hop citrus, dry grass on the nose. Muddied but enjoyable attack with a nice finish. Good beer!
