A refreshing sessionable pale ale made exclusively utilizing Cascade hops from start to finish. The citrus and grapefruit hop characteristics balanced with a clean malt body makes it difficult to have just one.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12oz bottle from Binnys Schaumburg. Pours a hazy orange-copper color.. Massive foamy white head. Earthy dry wheat, funky aroma. All signs point to mild infection. Its not entirely undrinkable, with a big zesty, piny hop bill, it sort of survives. Comes across pretty big for 4.9%. Decent ingredients, but pretty weak execution.

superspak (4660) - Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 6/15/2013. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light honey, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with some pretty dank feeling hop notes with a fair amount of malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, light honey, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance of dank citrus and floral/pine hop flavors; with a light amount of malt balance and some moderate astringent bitterness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very crisp and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming after the finish. Overall this was a good session pale ale. Good balance of hop flavors, and very smooth to drink. The astringent bitterness knocked this down a bit, but otherwise it was an enjoyable pale ale.
