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

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
12oz bottle, courtesy of - I think - ImperialJohn. Quite a hazy orange-deep amber pour, huge lasting fizzy white head. Only modestly hoppy aroma (more light resin and some dry herbalness) - lush cereal grain though, very nice (7+). Taste is pretty meh - less grain, some alcohol, a bit of metal .... ehh. Farly thick, somewhat undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish - half decent, would have it on draught.

blutt59 (6141) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at CHS, orange golden color with slight foam, aroma is hoppy citrus with flavors of sweet tangerines, piney caramel and good sour almost salty finish

PorterPounder (5972) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2008
Florence, South Carolina, Red Bone Alley Restaurant, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, little to no head - slight white lacing though. Odd, artificial aroma - that is not unpleasant - reminds me of some kind of jelly-like candy you get around Christmas for a fund raiser. Flavor is muddled and artificial and has hints of apricots and peaches and a touch of citrus - sticky - in an artificial way. Thick enough. Only thing the bartender could find that was "local" when I asked - took him a while to find it and was not sure what to charge me for it - he guessed at $1.50. Worth that - this one has suffered a bit from shelf life me thinks - rating gives it the benefit of the doubt. Will rerate upon encountering again.

Braudog (5966) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. Orange-amber with a thin but foamy top; wispy aroma of a hop flower, the flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer. Well done. (#2816, 4/22/2007)

decaturstevo (5342) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a clean golen orange with a good head and nice lacing. A nice not to grassy hops and malt aroma. Beer had a smooth creamy palate with good smooth carbonation not fizzy at all. A good taste of malt and hops with a lingering bitter that I like much. A really good beer for the style.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Draught. Clear coppery gold with small off-white head cap. Balanced, straightforward slightly metallic earthy aroma. Crisp refreshing nice hop kiss at finish. Good mouthfeel.

JaBier (5204) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2009
12oz bottle given to me by Dogbrick. Pours hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Grainy malt and caramel nose. Grainy malt flavor with some citrus and earthy hop character in the finish. Would like to try this one fresh before the hops go south.

Boutip (5037) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a small head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt is somewhat weak. Taste is dominated by some light caramel malt with no discernable hops presence. Full body with some medium to low carbonation. I guess this one is OK but nothing truly extraordinary.

jgb9348 (4994) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Copper colour with orange highlights and an off-white head. Nice aroma of hops, malt and even some nutmeg. Medium-bodied; Strong medicinal taste initially, followed by some malt and stale hops. Aftertaste has more astringent taste and a sort of hoppy ending. Overall, a good beer...needs some work though! I owe a large thanks to Mabdoney for this one...cheers Matt! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle on 02-November-2003.

Patrickctenchi (4538) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours hazy orange-amber-gold with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is malty, caramel, orange-peel, pine. Flavour is soft caramel with an easy hop bitter... Deep pine, resin. Very pleasant.
