3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light copper bronze with a clingy-lacing off-white head. Aroma has some good fresh grapefruity hoppy notes and mild toasty pale malt undertones. First sip reveals a good amount of sweet caramel malt and lots of fresh resiny hop flavor toward a crisp bittersweet finish. A pretty good APA.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big frothy off white head. Hoppy but not to crazy. Could do without the big floral content. Grapefruit taste is not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep copper pour with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, piney wet hops, orange zest, and some black/white ground pepper. The flavor is caramel malty and hoppy, with some tangerine, floral, and berry notes. The palate is fairly hefty, very crisp, with a nice burst of finishing hopcitrus. This one is very well made.

Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of flowers, pine & perfume. The brew is a clear copper. The beautiful cascade resolves into a fully lasting off-white head that leaves good lace. The beer is bitter through & through with moderate acidity. The medium body is creamy & soft. The finish feels crisp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating No. 1111. Bottle. Aroma is lightly hoppy with dark, slightly cellary (i.e. funky) malt, caramel, and the scent of chicken. Definite Cascades. Pours a clear orange with a creamy but non-lacing, slightly oily beige head. Sweetish, hoppy, floral taste. Lightly soapy medium-full body, mildly bitter with a great dose of funky biscuity malt. Dry, darkly malty aftertaste. Some nice lager qualities in this surprisingly good session - would love to have this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - 07/30/07 - Aroma of crystal malts, citrus hops and rusty water. Pours transparent copper with a solid medium head and good lacing. Flavor is syrupy crystal malts, caramel and some hops while retaining a mettalic finish. Palate is tart. Not my style of pale ale, that’s for sure.
