Dry hopped in the West Coast tradition with generous amounts of the best Cascade hops, this copper colored ale exhibits a spicy flavor, fruity aroma, and characteristic bitterness.

12oz bottle, picked up from Kahn’s on Keystone a couple weeks ago. Clear orange color. Pours with a thin, sort of airy off-white head, fizzing slightly. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Some decent grapefruit hop, and caramel malt, sort of spicy. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. A mild syrupiness. A decent pale ale. Better than expected. Decent to enjoy with my sandwich.

Aroma is tropical fruit/peal, citrus and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is citrus, light tropical fruit, Cascade hops/tea, malts and a slightly bitter/resiny finish.

Received this beer via a trade and it was a solid pale ale. It's always nice to try new beers that I can't get my hands on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Pleasant, light tangerine hop bouquet with some pine; light malts mostly of the cereal variety. Appearance: Turbid nearly amber pour (pale?) with a frothy bone head that settles into a tacky skin. Flavor: Muted, but present, tangerine up front sits well with semi sweet cereal; hops develop more of a full pine character toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Surprisingly solid pale ale; no bottle date, but this feels pretty fresh.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head and a few floaties in it. Nose is quite light and has a little bit of hoppiness to it. Taste has a light bit of bitterness up front, but has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a lot to this beer, but it’s fairly drinkable.

Hophaze (186) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a copper color with minimal head and sparse lacing. Aroma of citrus hops. Decently balanced. 2 steps above a Sierra Nevada but not anything extraordinary ----Hophaze out

slightly tart, and that seems to ruin the beer completely. Seems like an off bottle unfortunately.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2012
12oz bottle from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a mostly clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is papery pines with some toasty, bready caramels. Some grapefruits and florals. Flavor is thinner caramels and slightly toasty, bready pale malts up front before a good amount of bitter, earthy pines come in. Some grapefruits and light floral notes before this finishes dry and bitter with some citrus and a light malt balance. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-thin body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a slightly thin, but bitter pale ale. Well hopped with a light citrus flavor and a bit of a toasted, bready caramel. Eh.
