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

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - JUN 10, 2005
Pours dark golden with a nice white head. Lots of carbonation. Earthy aroma. NIcely hoped and decent malt. A well made pale ale, but nothing too spectacular.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Bottle pours translucent golden, small white frothy head, spotty lacing, with mild carbonation.   Grain/cereal nose, not much hop in there.   Dirty up front, quite grainy, blech.   Body and mouthfeel are medium, bordering on the watery side.   At least if its not going to be very hoppy, it does have a nice malt backbone.   Finish is a bit astringent.   Only a mild bitterness on the tip of the tongue exists.   NEXT!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Copper-orange. Nose generically hoppy, flavor similarly so, a not particularly pleasant lightly sweet and astringent finish.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2004
2004 bottle @ the gathering. Deep yellow-gold, mostly clear, small white head. Aroma of metal, hay, floral hops, sour yeast. Flavor is metallic and hoppy, very flowery and bitter, with no malt to speak of and then a watery death for the finish. Medium-light body, over-carbonated. Can’t find much use in drinking this.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Hazy amber body with minimal white head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, toffee, grapefruit. Watery light-medium body. Not sure what others see in this beer, but this one did not appeal to me at all.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Deep amber ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. The nose is of sweat, jalapeno or habenero pepper and earth. The flavor is moderately bitter with a strong hop bite. Grass and straw or hay. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. This beer is just too bitter without any sense of purpose or complexity. Hopped up solely for the sake of being hopped up.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Thin head. Taste is astringent. Not much hops either. Leaves a very unpleasent bitterness on the tongue.

Nice coloring and noticeable hopping make this a decent beer. However, it is a tad bit unoriginal in a croweded market for micro pale ales.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUN 26, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Thanks to the generosity of Ross I’m able to sample beer from a state I spent allot of time in when I was too young to consume it. Very Nice APA!!! Hoppy, bitter, faint hint of sweet tea behind the potent hops. Smooth and very drinkable. Great beer, First beer of Ross’ shipment I think I chose a good one to start of with. If you haven’t had this beer, maybe you should.
