Dark golden color, little white head. Sweet, caramel, fruity, dry and bitter aroma, rich and nice one. Bitterness coming from hops. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with sweet tones, ends with very strong bitterness and drought. Nice brew, my first American Pale Ale, reminds me of some IPAs.

Its not "interesting" its not "complex" but it is definately bitter. My favorite beer of all time when I just want a "beer." Sure, I love my belgians, stouts and barleywines, but this beer just screams cascade, balance and simplicity.

Dark honey golden color with small off-white head. Nose has aromatic hops and honey sweetness. Carbonated soft palate with good chewy malts. Good hopping but not too bitter. Well-balanced pale ale.

Medium head, light brown color, slightly hazy. Decent aroma, not overpowering. Smooth taste initially, stronger hop taste in finish. I liked this one.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 I don’t know what happened in the course of one week, but I decided to try another of the ones I had left in the six. I really enjoyed it. Aroma was much cleaner. Rerate this much better.

I like this beer. Pours amber. Tastes of floral hops with little malt character. Easy drinking beer.

I think the cascade hops are just too overpowering but I seem to be in the minority. Starts off nice and then wham.

Nice piney quality showing the cascade hops. Simple but delicious. In the end a well made classic American brew!

(Bottled) Orange color with small head. Lovely floral nose with lots of Cascade hops and citrus in it. Clean hoppy flavor with nice, light malty backbone. Light to medium bodied and very easy to drink. A good and balanced introduction to the style but otherwise nothing exceptional.
