UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Well, while the nut brown went down, this went up on the re-rate. A really nice fresh sessionable flavor. thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Original 3.5 Not much aroma. This is an okay beer. Most of the hops come out in the finish. The flavor seems a little odd at first but overall it’s decent.
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 At tasting room. Aroma and flavor from cascade stand out. This beer burps very well with the flavor of cascade. Also found it is bottled under the alias of Yosemite pale ale. Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
I had this beer on tap at the base of the mountain at Little Eagle Lodge. It was perfect after a day on the slopes. This beer poured a golden brown color w/ orange highlights; very slight head and medium lasting lacing. The aroma was big w/ citrus, pine and a hemp note. The flavor was citrusy w/ oranges and grapefruits, pine and a good hemp note. The mouthfeel was light and carbonated. I really liked this beer. Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. Bionda e fresca, ricalca in pieno lo stile delle APA con una luppolatura americana non eccessivamente amara. Buona, dissetante, soddisfacente. AmEricanbrew (7065) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Very clear amber with a fleeting head. Nice piney hop, grassy aromas. Smooth medium body. Good floral and pine hop flavors on a lightly sweet pale malt base. Another classic 80’s micro from these guys.

Appearance: Pours a yellow gold with an amber tint. Has a very sudsy head. hayduke (5703) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Aroma: Citrus and pine followed by light malt. A wonderful citrusy floral boquet.
Taste: A bitter resiny hop flavor, complemented by a nice malt back bone with a ever so slight roast note in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, great carbonation.
Overall: Real nice, hoppy and balanced.
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook chat. Poured a cloudy copper color. Big white head Lots of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and citrus and pine nose. Medium body and smooth clean mouithfeel. Flavor is a good balance of malts and hops with good bitterness that carries over into the finish. Very easy drinking. Great for the style. bhensonb (15858) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle as Paranoid Pale Ale. So much hop it suggests cat pee (that’s a good thing). I say citrus/floral (not grapefruit) with some resin/pine. Color is darkish coppery with tiny bubbles. The white head ringed quickly. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is hop - starting with pine, passing to grapefruit, and back. There is some malt, but balance favors hop! Finishes crisp and dry. Pretty good APA. elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle. Citrus floral hop aroma is prominent (and promising). Malt character is bready, sweet but not over done, hop flavors balance well. Mouthfeel is medium, finish is satisfying bitter. A very decent APA, I would certainly have another.
