Draft notes. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head. Pale malt, piney hops in the nose, a crisp, hoppy flavor with caramel malty and peppery flavors in the finish.

The beer has a decent appearance with a nice amber, straw color that passes some light through it, mild head on the beer and some decent lacing on the glass. The beer smells decently with a nice citrusy aroma and mildly caramel, malty aroma tp it. The beer tastes okay with a mild citrus flavor but not much else, disappointing for a warmer cask which should release the taste and didn’t. The mouthfeel is average while the beer is cask but okay carbonated but leaves a mild hoppy bitterness. Overall, id be interested to try thid beer non-cask but feel Id be disappointed with it.

Too thin and too weak. Sweet. Not very hoppy. For a pale ale I did not find this very good.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2011
On cask at Otto’s. Earthy, citrusy, fresh grassy hop aroma. Sweet with some pale malt and light sugary notes. Nice nose. Medium golden amber clear, with foamy-sudsy white lacing head. Medium bodied with cask carbonation. Starts with light malt sweetness, fresh grassy-herbal hops and light citrusy tang. Finish is medium bitter with a little bit of candi sugar sweetness. Smooth light bitter after.

On tap at brewpub. Amber-gold with half inch white head. Aroma and flavor are both citrus (mainly grapefruit). Nice refreshing pale ale.

Enjoyed on handpump at Otto’s - fairly hoppy and not really my thing, but I liked how it was served warmer. Pretty dry. Herbal.

On cask at the brewpub. Aroma is a mangled earth and citrus. Woodgrain, cane sugar, and sweetgrass fume from the nose. Blend this with some mexican oregano, pacific yew, and mineral rich soda water and you’ve got a profile. Pours a brilliant hazed orange, glowing and varied. Head is pillowy falling soap of opalescent white. Flavor carries palm oil, more herbaceous qualities and ringing citrus. A good balance between hop flavor, light honey-inflected sweetness, and fresh yeast. Lies light on the palate, with mild bitterness and perfect cask conditions. It does play a little too nice and the grubby Centennial shows its dirty side. I think maybe the yeast overpowers the beer in spots, when a refined hop character should be more eminent.

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Cask pint at the brewery. Perfect lumpy white head atop a cloudy light amber-orange body. Very fresh and grassy nose with a pungent hop note, presenting the centennial very well but sort of muddying it all up with some very prominent doughy yeast, resulting in a bit of a cheese funk emanating from this beer. Flavorwise it’s similar, with a cheesy-funk yeast flavor coating the otherwise fresh, nutty and twiggy hops (I just used twiggy in a rating). Good, and well crafted, but not near the Amarillo IPA.

Cask @ Otto’s. Pours a hazy, yellow-orange color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Pleasant aroma showing soft orange and resiny citrus hops; some tropical fruits and yeast. Very soft, creamy mouthfeel: orange and tropical hoppiness; pleasant, resiny hops coupled with a soft, sugary malt core; very drinkable. Medium, orange and doughy finish; ends a bit dry.
