Tap at the brewpub - Amherst. Pours clear, deep gold with a small, white foam head. Somewhat shabby. A bit of astringent pine, hints of plastic, bread, leaves. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with orange rind, light pine, grass. Meh. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Cloudy golden body with off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, pineapple. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, pine, some caramel, light pineapple. Light-medium body. Full favor of hops but not overwhelming. Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2006
Lightly hazed gold IPA with a thin white head. Light malt aroma with floral hops. Very light bodied IPA, with discreet floral hops and citrus, watery and plain. On tap Feb. 10, 2006. Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Aggressively carbonated yet light mouthfeel, minimum head with lace. Citrus taste is significant. This is perhaps the most drinkable of all their beers. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Cascade hop flavor is more subdued than their Pale Ale, weirdly enough...More malt girth than the same pale ale though and oranges and resinous bitterness are certainly not laying back...Medium intensity and well-balanced for an aptly brewed, if not unoriginal, American IPA...

Very hazy orange coloured beer with a light white head. The nose is quite hoppy and bright. Lots of citrusy character. There is a bit of light resinousness as well. The dry hopping comes out nicely. There is a touch of light malt. This is a fairly tasty, fresh hoppy IPA. caesar (7156) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2009
Tap @ beer temple. Slight hazy orange color, short head. Aroma of citrussy hop, slight grapefruit, bit floral. Dry bitter taste, slight caramel malt. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2005 On draught (and I bought and drank a growler too) at the brewery, Feb 2005. Golden-coppery color, quite hazy with a firm white head. Fantastic aroma, even from a regular pint glass. Pure, fresh, juicy, sweet, green hops and a touch of malt in the background. Flavor continues with the green hops aroma, with probably the freshest hops flavor I’ve ever tasted in a beer. Light spice/herbal/grass notes, no overbearing citrus or pine notes. It’s all hops flavor, without all of the obnoxious bitterness. Perhaps I’m a bit biased because I love Cascade hops, but this was just fantastically flavored. A touch dry on the malting, if they could add a bit of sweet toasted/caramel malt, it would be pretty close to perfect, in my book. Medium-full body is another strong point of this beer. The lack of any significantly sweet malt, may detract from the balance a bit, but it keeps the flavor crisp, refreshing and very drinkable. No wateriness, carbonation is minimal, as it should be. A definite must try! Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Copper with a white head. Resiny, light on the palate. Run of the mill beer. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2004
Hazy apricot garnet. Subtle off-white ring. Aroma is very orangey, but proposes a big malt backbone. Forget a straightforward grapefruit juice, this is a floral, nicely spicy and balanced aroma. As well done, but less interesting and surprising in mouth, I don’t catch the malt the aroma led to believe was underlying in there. Body is a bit light though and finish cut a bit short for an IPA. Cascade is not my favorite hop, but in the genre, this is well made, not agressively bitter, yet definitely geared toward the hops in mouth.
