Tried it at a tasting with other Mikkeller IPA’s at my favorite local beer store. This is the one I like the most. Lucky me, they had a keg in the back to fill growlers with. Guess what I got? You got it! A growler of Cascade. The pours a very pretty hazy copper with a very thick and foamy head that’s very reminiscent of the crema you get from a good cappuccino. The lacing is so good, I’ll need a scrubber to get it off the glass. The aroma is not very overwhelming, but who cares, the mouthfeel is so rich and creamy with a very nice dry finish. It makes up for the lack of strong aromatics. This is very reminiscent of 90min IPA, but yet is much more subtle and delectable than the Dogfish Head offering. It’s gonna be very hard to not put that whole growler away in one night!

Draft. Hazy golden. Big piney aroma, been a long time since i had just a cascade hopped beer. Taste was a bit stale malt, and a grassy piney cascade bite. Overall good, just not sure how old this baby is.
