Appearance - This is a sugary-looking brown in color with lots of sediment in the bottom of my glass. The head is moderate but very light and fluffy.
Smell - This big hop aroma is pleasing but dominated by the Cascades. It seems like the Amarillo and especially the Simcoe were wasted here. I enjoyed the stiff, piney scent well enough just didn't get the mix.
Taste - The piney character of this hop profile took over at the taste as well. What little grain I could pick up though was quite nice.
Mouthfeel - This medium-bodied ale had some light but quality carbonation. Fair warning though, this fella is dry as a bone.
Drinkability - This is a very unique mix. On the one hand it is so incredibly smooth that you just want to session the heck out of it but the ale has other plans as its dryness demands patience.
