Point Cascade Pale Ale is handcrafted combining special top-fermenting yeast and a dry hopping process to create this truly classic American Pale Ale. The intriguing character is derived from generous quantities of the choicest Yakima Valley Cascade hops and the finest crystal, 2 row pale, and Munich malts. The result is a delicious American Pale Ale with a signature fragrant hop bouquet and soft malt palate.

Bright, light copper/amber body, with a very thin, almost completely disappearing head. No lacing. Majority of the aroma was malt, but there were some citrus notes in the background. Quite balanced flavor profile; too bad, because I would have liked more hops. There is a nice, mild bitterness in the aftertaste, though. The more sips I had of this beer, the better it got; however, it definitely peaked at a (3.3).

This bottle was part of a variety pack purchased. The others in the sampler were crap, but this pale ale was very good. Poured with a nice head that disappeared rather quickly. Nice hoppy aroma. Tasting presented a crisp start with lively carbination.With a light body, a thin mouth feel was inevitable. An excellent finish, in my opinion. Just the right bitterness was present. Overall, a decent American Pale Ale, and the only beer from this brewery that is drinkable.

12-ounce brown bottle poured a dense dark amber color with a slight white head. Both hops and caramel malt in the aroma. Light-to-medium body. A bit thin on the mouthfeel but OKAY. Hoppy flavor with underlying maltiness. A bit "contrasty" between the hops and the malt but over time they go down together OKAY. Hop bitterness lingers into the finish. Carbonation becomes noticable after a while. The components are all ther but the synergy isnt. Maybe too one-dimentional.

Not the best pale ale I have sampled, i though it was watered down for the most part, in comparison, with say, the Summit EPA. Would be a good Ale for those who arent fans of supper hoppy, bitter ones...

Pale amber hued golden, with a froth of off-white. Delicate aroma of west coast hop tinged malt sugars. Flavor is a somewhat thin-bodied sweet hop sugars, gentle and wafting. The sweet orange cream Cascades meld with light malts. The body doesnt really bother me, as its perfect for drinking and not particularly watery. Not distractingly thin. There are some cheap corn fusels and distant off-notes that hold this one back. But, the nice long parching hop smack, in apple, provides balance. For the price and for sessions, a good choice.

Aroma is light citrusy with a touch of bready caramel malt notes. Color is a clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor is on the light side. The malt is thin and grainy and there is a touch of citrusy hop flavor in the finish. The grassy-grainy flavor isnt super pleasent to me. Texture and body is light with medium high carbonation. Thanks Jeff, for the bottle. I can see what you mean by almost skunked. I think that is a combination of the citrusy-grapefruit and the grassy flavor.

Subtle IPA bitter on the nose. Light orange in color with a white head. Your basic issue IPA bitter mild taste. Pretty uneventful watery mouth feel. One could, er one did get bored drinking this stuff. Yawn. Didnt pay much for this stuff, got what I paid for kind of beer.

Earthy grassy notes. A nice hoppy aroma. Copper colored. Off white head. I had my first experience with Point beers back in college in Wisconsin. I dont remember them being very good. This was a better than average pale ale. I see no discernable flaws here, and would easily order this beer again.
