COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The full flavor of American ascade hops pours out at you from every angle, the result of adding hops 5 different times to the brew, including "dry-hopping". An underlying, rich malt flavor supports the crisp and floral hop bitterness to produce a thirst-quenching, flavorful brew.

A golden amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a smooth caramel malt with light floral hops, grassy, not bad. In mouth, a smooth crisp malt with light floral hops, very British. On tap at Madison airport location, Jan 22 2012.

Enjoyable hoppiness with a finishing hint of sweetness. Tart but not too bitter. Nice looking ale with minimal head.

Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the downtown brewpub. Cascade hops, an Ok bitterness was delivered. Lacey, cloudy golden body. Like a lighter IPA. Carbonation right there. Hoppy aroma, 40 IBU. OK as a moderately hoppy beer, with 40 IBU and 5.2% abv.

BVery (11385) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tap at the brewpub in Wausau, WI. I was just not a huge fan of this one - looks like I might be in the minority on this. Golden pour with a white head. Nose was kind of like a scotch ale - a little sweatsock in here. Medium palate with noticeable carbonation. Taste was hops, bread/biscuit, and there’s that scotch ale flavor again.

On tap at downtown location. Strong cascade aroma. Very Hoppy, modeate bitterness. Unbalanced and a bit watery. Pretty good but one dimensional.

drowland (9160) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2011
8/14/11. On tap in the Madison airport. Pretty clear orange pour with a small, fluffy white head that laces plenty. Bold aroma of American hops with citrus, dankness, and a teensy hint of pine. Similar flavor with citrus, but a bolder pine aspect and more pronounced floral aspects. There’s also a touch of minerals/hard water in there as well. Not too shabby.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
On tap at the downtown brewpub. Pours a lightly hazed, golden orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is big florals and juicy citruses. Lots of oranges and some grapefruits with a light piney resin. Some sweeter caramels as well as a touch of bread. Flavor is similar. Lots of florals and some pines with a light resin. Light caramel sweetness to balance before a dry finish and moderate bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pale ale. Lighter, but tasty and easy drinking. Fairly well hopped and nicely balanced making this quite enjoyable.

Apr 22, tap @ Great Dane Brewery, Fitchburg. Citric and piny, malty aroma. Pungent, sweet, citric and piny flavor. Excellent hoppyness. Great bitter finish.

Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap in Madison - August 2009.

Pours a light copper color with a bit of a white head and a really small amount of lacing. The nose is some nice citrus, grapefruit, and floral hops with a bit of a light caramel backing. The taste is mild grapefruit skin plus a bit of pale malt and slight caramel flavoring. Feel is a bit light with some mild bitterness. A well-made beer that drinks fairly well.

Serving type: on-tap

nuplastikk (6471) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Draft at Great Dane. Hazy,cloudy. Oily head. Malty and rich, has the classic earthy APA characteristics, but the body is a bit watery. Soapy, piny hop balance. Unexceptional, but sessionable.
