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.

Orangish/gold pour with a white head. Hops, honey, caramel malt and plastic aroma. Flavor has more hops and caramel but also a unpleasant plastic flavor. Almost really good.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Noce head and decent lacing, orange in color, with notable cloudiness. Grapefruit peppery flavor a little overwhelming, but decent drink none-the-less.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Pours Yellow-orange with a nice big lacey white head. Citrussy orange aroma of massive hops. Hoppy flavor with citrus notes. Full body. A touch of malt. I just think this is lacking in refinement, for the flavors are just not coming completely together for me.

If you’ve ever seen a growing snake firecracker then essentially, you’ve seen what this beer’s head can do. having poured roughly 1/2 of the 22oz bottle into a pint the head began to grow, and grow, and grow until it began to slowly recede, leaving behind amazing, tight-knit lacing. Strong aroma of yeast, citrus and apricot... taste on the other hand has notes of grapefruit, apple and Zinc. While this beer has an awesome scent and a pretty good taste, I was not as psyched as I had expected to be when pouring and sniffing. The carbonation overpowers the mouthfeel... almost difficult to get a sense of this beer as it doesn’t sit on the tongue very long... rather, dances around not leaving much of a footprint. Overall enjoyable but wish it would settle a little more, perhaps at a warmer temp it would settle on the tongue but overall I am just not a big fan of big carbonation.

A nice golden appearance, with a thin white head. Mainly hops on the nose, both floral and bitter. Taste was initially sweet and finished with a mix of bitter and floral hops.

Pours a light golden yellow with a small white head. Flavors of bubble gum and slight hops. Great balance of hops and malt, yet nothing too special in that.
