3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet bready malts and fruity hops.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little fruit and grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice cascade hop pale ale.

Bottle shared at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Thanks to Kenneth! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a creamy white head. Simple APA with bready pale malts, light bitter hay. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Nice balance to finish, with more basic pale bready malts and mellow citrusy hops. Fine. I could sink a few bottle of this without issue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale orange,light froth. Spotty lace. medium hop aroma, more of fruit than as described. Little spice and floral, some dank resin surprisingly. Little bit of plastic-like mead sweet aroma. Pretty nice for cascade and if it is the same home grown cascade, I thought that was really nice in one of their other beers. More hop flavor with some flat caramel malt. Flat in the middle but hoppy and a mellow bitter. bit of resin on the end of bitter. Good hop aroma and flavor for cascades, kind of mediocre otherwise.

It’s closer to tasteless than taste. Reminds me of not eating or not drinking. However, there is something attractive about it. Is it the simple notion that this enclosure contains alcohol? Is it an unconscious attraction, one I might never truly understand, but one that keeps me drinking. It is strange when a beer is easy to drink on the first sip. I understand the ones that startle in the beginning. A harsh IPA or even a miller lite. These beers surprise a drinker in the early stages and for different reasons, the IPA smacks your tongue out of your mouth and the miller lite simply disturbs. It is quite common, on the first sip of a miller lite for a drinker to question the ripeness of his or her beverage. Did this beer go bad? Will this drink kill me? But both these beers, over time, drift into the realm of drinkability. We get used to their thorns and begin to recognize their charm. This beer instead has no grit, none at all. Can we really hope to ever find its bright-notes? Perhaps these 12ounces will bring me an answer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy honey color with a nice sticky head. Aroma nice and hoppy, but not overwhelming, floral and citrus. Taste solid and bitter, but again restrained. If an IPA is an APA dialed up to eleven, than this beer is an IPA dial back to basic pleasantness.
