COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a lightbodied, hop-forward pale ale. Copious amounts of Cascade hops late in the brewing process, and another huge dry hop addition in the fermenter will remind craft beer lovers what they love about this style. The intense hop aroma will make you think IPA, but the bitterness is dialed back to showcase the characteristics of this classic hop variety.

A light but nicely hoppy APA. Not crazy bitter but still a tasty little beer on tap at Northbound Mpls.

arminjewell (9675) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, some grass, orange peel, and pine into some hints of yeast, grainy notes in there, pretty standard. Taste is a mix of grain, biscuit, bread, hints of earth, slight grass, orange, hints of pine, finishing bitter, slightly dry.
