COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hop flavor and aroma of the truly American cascade hop distinguishes this beer.

12 oz bottle via DecaturoStevo(thanks!). Pours a hazy amber orange with a VERY SMALL white head. Nose is floral and has notes of grapefruit, grass, pine. Tastes like it smells and is quite hoppy gor a Pale Ale. Malts are there for a second but are pretty subdued. Crisp clean grapefruit finish with a touch of lemon in the aftertaste. Very nice hoppy refreshing beer.

Bottle: Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a thin off-white head. Light citrus hop aroma with big malt and an earthy finish. The flavor was citrusy and mildly acidic from the hops. Caramel malt flavors. Decent hop finish

Delivered to my refrigerator from SC (thanks J!). What a pleasant surprise. I hadn’t read anything about it, but loved the amber color and nice foam head. Mostly malt in the nose, with a hint of hops that hits you a bit more as you begin to sip through the foam. Mouthful is rich with just a tickle/hint of carbonation. Taste is malt and hops and carmel and a touch of citrus-like hops flavor that adds an incredibly delicate tartness. Amazing balance--and yet each taste comes in and out in turn. And yet there is nothing about it that is "in your face" (e.g., highly hopped). And they list ingredients on the bottle as nothing but water, yeast, hops and malted barley. No tricks (adjuncts, additives, etc.). Just pure quality taste. I loved it. The slightly bitter aftertaste is phenomenal. Makes you want to pick up the glass again and again. Easily one of my absolutely favorite APAs. Long after you’re through the glass, the taste lingers on your tongue and your mouth waters. Could easily be a "usual" for me, if I could find it up here. Guess another trip to NC is in the future.

Bottle. Pours a copper-orange with a fluffy white head if your agressive with it. I like to be agressice in the pour sometimes to release the aroma. Smell of citrius and a little piney spice. Taste is very nice with some caramel, spice, and pine. Nice little bite to finish on the way down. I like this beer but then again I like hops.

12oz bottle-pours a thick light tan head that laces with copper color. Aroma is lively hops, sweet, malt. Taste initially starts out thin, then mild caramel malt followed by nice biting medium hops. Medium/light body. Improved with the second one.

Light yellow orange body with a white head. Cascade like citrus lemon and wet rubber nose. I don’t care for the aroma. Light orange and lime sweet flavor. Clean thin finish. Ap-3 ar-3 tas-5 pal-3 ov-10
