COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A superb example of an American Pale Ale. The Cascade hop flavor just explodes in your mouth. Combined with the clean malt character and smooth finish, you are left utterly wanting another when your glass is empty.

Bottle; poured a slightly murky, ruddy amber-gold color with a small to medium off white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, buttered toasted, fruit and earth. Flavor had a earthy, spicy and fruity base. A bit unexpected, but can see the cascade influence. Solid for the style.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 tap-tucson beer fest WOW-thanks to squidget on this one! he said "go get some burning bird", so i did. This is a great pale ale! very balanced with an incredible aroma! very very sweet-nice hops from start to finish. re-rate-in the bottle, this is not as flavorful as on tap-a bit thin too-wonderful aroma still, but a little more straw/grassy flavor going from the bottle.

from the cask @ papago... mmm, warm beer. right from the start it earns extra points... pours a brownish golden color with a fluffy white head that sticks to the stache and lingers around until last call. aroma is light wood, citrus fruit tartness and light roasted grains. the flavor starts flowery but soon leads into orange, caramel and grassy hop bitterness. those hops stick around in the aftertaste. super creamy cask texture. this would be a very mediocre brew if it weren’t for the cask...

1 Litre. Resin heavy nose of in the west coast range, diminished and indiscriminate. Pours a clear amber peach, with bright wheat slick soap. Flavor is a nice refreshing hop balance. Some of those artificial tasting styro hops peak in amongst the citrus, pine and grass, but then this tangles with a subtle honey malt background. Gentle and warming. Body is full, yet nicely dry. Yeast plays clean. Smacks not bitter, but with good hop residues, warmed in a high floral manner. Good job executing hop flavor. Rich, flavorful and rounded. Delightful. Thanks Rudy!

1 liter bottle from AJ’s Fine Food (Tucson)- Yup, that’s right. A 1 liter cobalt blue swingtop. Very nice. Pours a clear amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Lots of thick lacing. Has a very distinct hop aroma. I can’t figure it out. I like it though. Strong hop flavor. Not getting much malt at first. Medium body. Slightly dry palate. Good beer. It took forever to drink this thing.

So this is a different beer than I remember...and I don’t think it is just because it was on cask @ Papago. Missing the underlying sweetness that gave this one tremendous balance. Aroma displays hop bitterness. Color was light 10k gold with small flashes of amber. Flavor is much more sour. Where are the malts...toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and molasses to balance this beer out???

Thanks to Ethan via hellbilly for the sample at the sexual chocolate grand tasting! Hazy light amber pour with a frothy off white head. Citrus aroma. Pine, citrus, and maybe some rye. A little sweet on the finish

Bomber courtesy Hellbilly. Pours a light copper with a thick off white head. Nice floral hop citrus aroma. Taste is crisp clean malt and nicely balanced hop bitterness. Very easy drinking Pale Ale, very good.

Indra (2662) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Citrusy and lightly floral aroma, some tangerine and grapefruit, along with a touch of lightly toasty malt sweetness. Medium golden color, slightly hazy, with a creamy, settling head. Malty, sweet caramel and a bit of flowery perfume up front, followed by a blend of fruity, citric hop flavors. Light-medium bodied, palate is a little bubbly. Nice hoppy aftertaste.

Re-Rate 05/27/02: Clear amber with a nice white head and decent lace. Nose is malt, slight hop floral tones noted. Front sweet, top light, finish loaded with with hops, dry, crisp, and a very drinkable beer.
