Very good. User369532 (907) - - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle. Amber color, cloudy liquid, white head. Aroma of grapefruit; I cannot feel anything else. Heavy bitter, but not very pleasant. Long bitter finish. Something for tough men I guess. Gurthnar (5865) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle at DvaDve. Solid caramel background. Clear orange-amber colour. Very easy drinking though assertively bitter. Hoppy aroma and flavour is surprisingly un-cascadey. General fruitiness with resiny and zesty notes. Very good and easy drinking though. MisoW (3569) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2016

330ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a mostly clear amber with a big white head that shows long retention and leaves a thick film. Nose has a green hoppy aroma of lemongrass, lime and grapefruit. Mild resinous notes in the back and stronger green fruity notes kiwi, aloe vera and zest. Good but really soft. Not expressive enough. Taste has mild green bitterness. Herbal, citrusy and some soft fruity flavors. Lemon, grapefruit, kiwi and custard apple notes integrate into the overall citrusy expression. Medium body and soft carbonation. Moderate astringency and unnoticeable alcohol. This one seemed pleasant enough but slightly dull, lacking fun. Is Cascade too mellow for a single hop American-style IPA? I’d have to try another example.

33cl bottle at home from Beerodalom, Budapest. Body is hazy orange copper, head is big, beige, large bubbles, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is fruity, flavor is grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits, spices, tea, bread, light toasty, biscuit. Light to medium sweet, medium bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy heavy bitter. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Quite easy but also dessertish, strong flavor with great balance, tasty hoppy IPA.

Hazy amber, white head. Aroma of tropical fruits with medium intensity. Nice piney bitter taste, herbal finish. MMR (752) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2015
I wonder what it is Mikkeller does to give their beers their signature taste. I really loved this Single Hop Cascade IPA. It is delightfully soft in it’s mouthfeel and palate but has a strong nice bitter and hoppy aroma.
