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.

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

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle thanks to Sparky27. Pours a cloudy orange with a super thick, foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toasted malt, floral hops. Flavor of smoke, caramel malt, pale malts. An odd tasting beer, possibly infected. It was still drinkable though. 6/4/6/4/14 [3.4/5]

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Received in trade. Lightly hazy golden orange color with a big head that almost makes me think this is infected with gusher. Pretty carbonation though. Crisp metallic and biscuit like aroma. Lightly sharp taste that moves towards bitterness in a spicy way. Light grain in fine balance with the hops. Simple and straight forward. Semi-dry mouth feel with a medium body. I may have liked this more a bit fresher but it was fine.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle courtesy of sparky27 in the Mystery Swap. Pours a clear orange amber with a thick white head. Light citrus, a bit of earthy malt, almost a touch of lavender. Medium bodied, big hop presence, caramel. Finishes with a big long grapefruit bitterness with bits of quinine.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2011
22oz bottle. Hazy orange-brown color. Massive foamy head. Resiny orange hop aroma, quite nice. Lemony, and a little thin bodied for the style. Fresh and zesty, but that’s all it really has going on. The malt profile is too thin to really accommodate or balance the hops. Grassy mouthfeel. A pretty awkward West Coast version of the style.

Bottle # 20 at yesprs blindtasting. Hazy amber coloured with a creamy white head. Fruity aroma of spices with notes of burnt sugar. Fruity flavour of caramel, hops and grass. Dry hoppy finish.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of orange citrus and toffee notes, with the addition of some grass in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Thick, persistent head over light copper. Cascade hops meets electrical fire aroma, but in a kinda good way. Flavor is a well balanced typical APA but has a tingly, almost smoky character to it in the background. Power of suggestion? I dunno.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
Earthy hop nose - a little floral and woody with a hint of citrus. Biscuity malts and caramel. Pours golden amber with a fizzy head that leaves rather quickly. Woody earthy hop notes dominate as does a hint of caramel sweetness and a light dry malt character as well. Well carbonated, if not a little too much for me. Dry lingering earthy hop presence.
