32oz growler from the brewpub. Pours a rich copper, darker than expected. Nose is sticky resin, and much more malt than expected. Some citrus and citrus peel. Sweet. More like a syrupy pale ale. Some fruity notes. Disappointing, but a tad better than the Chinook.

Draft at the downstairs tasting room. 500th IPA! Pours a clear vibrant copper color with a thin white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toffee malts and citrus hops. The taste is green hops with pine, citrus and herbal qualities with mild toffee malts. Medium bodied.

Shag (2609) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2013
This poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma contains some lemon, pine, and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter but had a malt presence with some caramel showing up with the citrus. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Overall pretty good session IPA.

10 oz. pour at the brewpub. Similar to the Chinook wet hop ale, this one is not over the top in aggressive hop use. But instead has very tasteful and fresh hop qualities. I’ve decided I like Cascade more than Chinook. The grapefruity quality of the hop is well portrayed in this ale and makes this a very refreshing summertime beer. The malts here don’t do much other than simply be there. The finish is a little juicy. I enjoyed this beer more like I would a pale ale than an IPA, despite the higher alcohol content.
