Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the cascade hops with a nice blend of the caramel malts. Strong citrus hop flavor. Finishes bitter that is almost delayed and then comes out pretty strong.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2009
At the tasting session by Joes. A clear orange/amber colored beer, with a great beige head. The aroma of hops with apricot, some caramel malts. A little sweet. The taste of dry hops. Itís bitter with fruits like citrus and apricots. The aftertaste has a strong hop bitter, which stays for a while.

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2009
33cl bottle from Cave Direct stand at Planet Thanet 2009. The cascades are quite earthy and very bitter on the finish rather than flavoursome as the warrior was more so that I had it side by side with. Deep hazy orange colour thick beige head. Beautiful piney hoppy aroma. Earthy too as I say. Body is fine and carries the alcohol and hops well. Then this attack of pine and resin and earth on the finish. Good IPA maybe just a bit too earthy on the finish

Beer5000 (5727) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2009
330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Slightly hazy golden body with a big off-white head. Strong and pleasant aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor has some malt, but itís totally dominated by the hops. Itís citric fruity, piney and bitter. Balanced on the bitter side. This beer is actually quite straight forward hoppy, but itís well made and really pleasant.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2009
330mL bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy orangish amber with a huge three-inch fluffy white head that remains a cap for the duration and sticks to glass on the way down. Tons of bubbles stream up to the top throughout. The aroma is very fresh with tons of lemons and pineapples. There is a light bready malt presence as well. The aroma is good but very light. The taste follows the nose and itís interesting to me to see what these single hop beers taste like. This one really isolates the light lemony hop taste of the cascades. There is some malts thrown in as well and the hops leave a bitterness through the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with lots of carbonation and a dry, bitter finish, almost abrasive as the bitterness builds up after each sip. I really like the concept of these single hops beers as I now get a much cleaner understanding for the tastes imparted by each type. I didnít like this one nearly as much as the Simcoe, likely due to my own taste, but itís still very drinkable.
