COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Cascade Pale Ale is handcrafted combining special top-fermenting yeast and a dry hopping process to create this truly classic American Pale Ale. The intriguing character is derived from generous quantities of the choicest Yakima Valley Cascade hops and the finest crystal, 2 row pale, and Munich malts. The result is a delicious American Pale Ale with a signature fragrant hop bouquet and soft malt palate.

too much for me, the hop flavor was very strong, also the finish was quite bitter.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle - nice, unmistakeable Cascade hop nose. Cloudy medium gold body with a head of largish white bubbles. Decent Cascade flavor with a supporting malt background. Kind of thin. Okay - not great.

ebarnes (239) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours crystal clear amber with a small head that leaves a tiny bit of lacing. Aroma is very light. Flavor has hints of spice and some kind of citrus. Maybe orange. Very slight. Seems like this would be a fine beer after cutting the grass on a hot summer day.

from the bottle. poured a nice amber with a white head head that left a small amount of lacing. aroma the yeast and hops took the front seat on this one than the malts came in followed by a mild spiceyness. flavor caramel and hops, pine citrus, malts with a slight bitterness to it. a very refreshing and easy to drink beer.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours a still, transparent copper amber with a thin-lacing white head. Aroma of nice fresh, piney cascade hops and some mild crystal malt. Body starts with a light caramel sweetness, some nicely balancing fresh piney hops and a hint of citrus. A decent APA but could use some more malt and hops. Im glad to see Point trying some new styles.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottle. Clear dark amber with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly. Good hoopy pine aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Well balanced hoppy flavor with a moderate bitter finish. Above average brew.

Not much here--kinda hoppy, kinda caramelly, sorta flat, sorta boring. Drinkable.

This beer had a small diminishing head and was light in color. It had decent flavor with a bitter finish.

Im not a Point Cascade hater, I just think the "kiss of [cascade] hops" gives this APA a generic macro flavor.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Pours a bright, caramel/amber with a yellow-tinged head that holds and laces. Big hopcit aroma makes my mouth water. Orange peel, lemon, some roasted malt, hint of pine. Flavorful hop bitterness with a slightly burnt ending. Pretty darn good, albeit a little thin. Surprising.
