3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly dry IPA that wears its cascade roots on its sleeve. Really the only thing detectable in both the nose and flavor is the familiar citrus tang of cascade hops. Not that that is a bad thing just something that has become a bit cliche in recent years. I would still buy it again but would pass over it if more exciting options were available.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours light hazy and fairly bright red amber. Has a decent aroma with not much to it. Taste is fairly thin, much more sweet than bitter. Notes of citrus and predominately pear. Good and enjoyable, but not great. I prefer a little more full flavor. Might be a good IPA to introduce to a non IPA drinker.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is awful. Just dreadful. I bought it hoping it would be an IPA that could get me liking IPAs (don’t worry, that mantle was taken up by another beer and it was successful), but this is garbage. Its bitterness is overwhelming, its aroma is forgettable, and if given the choice between drinking it and eating my own toenails, I’d go get the clippers myself.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours slightly hazy amber. Quick 1+ finger off white head. Little lacing and some retention. Aroma is citrus and grassy. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, slick mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter . Tasting notes of caramel, grass, pine, lemon and herbs. It’s OK, nothing special but OK.
