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

crazyvin (1910) - New York, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Poured a clear medium amber hue with a white head, good retention and good lace. Aroma had a typical caramel malt note and some hops. Flavor was nicely balanced and the finish was really smooth. Carbonation was just right. A great session ale.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Tap. Medium Amber Color. Foamy white head. Some lacing in the glass. Rich hop aroma, with a touch of grasses and wheat. Flavor was rich in hops and was crisp. Little harsh on the palate with the carbonation, but the rich flavor more than made up for the texture. Not bad at all.

Plovmand (6320) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet fruity hoppy with a good citric kick. The flavour is citrus, caramel, biscuits, peaches and sweet light toasted malt. Nice. Thanks karstenborg for sharing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice malt but not enough balance, a bitter aftertaste lingers for awhile afterwards.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2002
Pours a clear copper color with a rocky white head. It has a nice fruity hop aroma that is typical of IPA’s and APA’s. Medium bodied with good malty chewiness up front and finishes with a slight hop twang. A very nice American style pale ale.

sdfink (30) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Darker tea color. Fairly bitter taste -- almost too biteer -- with hints of citrus. Reasonably good head that persists. Lasting aftertaste.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Bottled. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. This one has very little flavor - I wish it had more hop flavor and some more malts so that it could remotely compete with Sierra Nevada. A good crisp pale.

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.

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2006
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.

I liked this a lot. Lightly bitter taste and finish. Well balanced with some caramel malt. Some spices and citrus in the taste as well. Nice complexity.
