Appearance: amber beer, stable white head.
Nose: very sweet nose, pleasant!

I can understand why a lot of brewers use this kind of hop. Holmen1 (5915) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2013
Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: nr. 17, og flere i panelet har kastewt inn glasset og forlatt åstedet. Bare 38 IBU, men ganske bitter allikevel. Fruktig og god. Fikk først en stjerne i margen, men denne ble strøket uten at jeg kan erindre hvorfor... HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013

Appearance: Hazy dark orange color with a fine off white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Malty, fruity and grape hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a rich bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity and rich (grape) hoppy on a solid malt background.
Overall impression: Heavy stuff. Nice IPA but it is better with Cascade together with some other friends.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Oslo - Vika in Oslo, Norway.
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, medium sized, creamy, fairly long lasting, fair lacing white to off - white head. Aroma of malts, citrus, oranges, hops, grapefruit. Taste malts, hops, grapefruit, bitter, fruity. Medium body and carbonation. I very much like this. A clean IPA, nothing outrageous, good balance. Lovely.

Bottle, enjoyed september 15th 2012. Hazy dark orange body, big offwhite head. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit. Dry taste with cara malt, grapefruit and oranges. Good strong bitterness. Not very special in any way, but a solid cascade ipa. pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2013
not bad, lacking in the flavour of others in this range. A little soapy at the end. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th. Fun to get to hit a few of this series. Medium orange, Aroma of caramel and grapefruit and pine hop. Flavor matches. Not bad. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Slightly hazy amber with small particulate and faint offwhite head. Smells and tastes of old musty earthy hops. Faintly citrus, but that has faded for the mostpart. Not my favorite of the group. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
RG 19. Bottle. Orangey with thin head and light lacing. Smells floral and grapefruity. Tastes really sweet. Syrupy with a light bitter finish.
