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

Citrusy aroma with a great bitter, hoppy finish. The color was super clear, contrary to an earlier comment. I got this beer on tap at Noisy Oyster in Charleston.

Color is reminiscent of a good ipa. Head diminishes quickly hops almost too pronounced for a pale ale. Would have given it a better rating as an ipa. It’s all in the name.... Sitting here in chas though so when in Rome...just a good beer- not great, not bad

On cask at the Charleston Brewvival on 02/27/2010. Cloudy orange body with a small white head. Big citrus and simcoe aroma. Simcoe and citrus hop flavor, though somewhat light. Light body with moderate carbonation.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle from a grocery in Charleston. Pours a nice amber-gold. Offwhite head. Nose is all fresh cascades with a bit of caramel in the background. Taste is pretty solid, crisp and fresh cascade citrus that works with the caramel. Nice.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 Pale ale is too strong for my taste. Plenty of hops and bitterness to go along with it.

Pours clear amber, white head, decent lacing. Draft at Salty Dog. Nose of caramel and mild hops. Big on caramel with an OK bitter and a touch of pine. Decent.

A medium aroma of cereal and barnyard is apparent on the forefront of this beer. It has a cloudy orange brown appearance with minimal white lacing. The beer has a good amount of hops with a hint of cereal and grass on the palate. There is also a slight caramel finish to the beer. I would drink this beer again if offered the opportunity.

Bottled. Clear amber to orange with thin white head. Aroma is malt cerelas bland and general light sweetness and very, very light hop floral notes. Flavor is similar but ends big bitter.

Drake (9001) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2010
12 ounce bottle courtesy of afausser. Thanks! Pours a hazy pale orange color, hazy, with some rather significant floating particles. These guys don’t filter much, which is cool with me. Medium head with fair head retention and lacing. The aroma is somewhat faint with caramel and leafy hops. The taste is caramel with citrus hops and a tea-like note in the finish. Light bodied and just the slightest bit watery.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Dark gold color. Clear. Light head but good lace. Mostly malty aroma; lots of caramel malt flavor. The flavor has a modest hop spice that lasts through the swallow. Neutral body and carbonation.
