Assertive. The aroma is good and the taste is even better with plenty of the cascade blasting through. The appearance is a bit chunky and turbid. Finish is a nice amount of bitterness with only a puny of malt stickiness. Overall, itís very pleasing.

355ml bottle. Bottled 12/13/14. Pours a darker gold than in the picture. Aroma is basic, caramel, earth, citrus, ambiguous fruit. Flavor is fruity, herbal, farily round and watery but yet witha dry finish. Spicy and herbal, a bit acidic. Its decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. From notes, because internet outage.
A: Pours a mildly hazy gold color. Thereís a finger worth of white-colored head. Itís bubbly texture has decent retention, and also leaves behind rings of lacing down the side of the glass.
S: The malts here are quite nutty, backed by some piny hops, and even some indistinct spice notes. There are touches of citrus, but I wished this was stronger. All in all, a mild and unimpressive aroma.
T: It starts off with some mild nut flavors along with caramel touches. The pepper I picked up from the nose is fairly prevalent here, also. Hops only really show up as a piny flavor near the back end. Not bad, but a classic example of a beer thatís balanced to a fault.
M: Very crisp and light, even over other pale ales. Even better, it isnít particularly watery in feel, boasting decent body without overdone residual sweetness. Carbonation is at a good level, not too fizzy nor too flat.
O: The feel was great, but everything else was rather lacking. Luckily, itís great drinkability helps (somewhat) to mask its less-than-amazing flavor profile. Still, this isnít going to be on my "repeat purchase" list anytime soon.

Ah, well itís a decent enough American Pale Ale. Dry-hopped title doesnít mean too much.

Highly carbonated with lots of pine hop aroma and flavor. Tasty but more hops presence than an a traditional APA.

12oz bottle. Gold amber color with one finger head. Earthy aroma, doesnít seem as strong as a normal dry hopped beer. Slightly citrus taste, mostly earthy. Alright beer for me.
