12oz brown bottle with a freshmess date of 2/28/2014 on it and today is 2/27, so I guess I ought to get to drinking this.

The beer poured a cloudy gold color with a ½-finger of white head that dissipated in under 30 seconds, but left lots of spotty lacing on the glass.

Big pine and orange smell. Very hoppy.

The goal of this beer, according to the company web site, was to create a big hopopy beer without the big bitterness that usually goes along with it. They succeeded. Pine, tangerine, and orange hop flavors dominate, but there is plenty of sweet caramel malt for balance. Bitterness is present, but mild. It's delicious.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

They've found a way to keep the citrus flavor of the cascade hops while limiting the bitterness. The result is a delicious, hoppy brew. I can't say enough good things about this beer. Highly recommended.

L - hazy amber colored ale with a creamy ivory head that holds good retention
S - fresh hoppy aroma with citrus and pine notes, fruity and caramely as well
T - bold cascade hops dominate the palate with a piny, citric, spicy bite. Caramel, bread, and toasted grain give a nice malt backbone, some fruitiness on the finish
F - creamy, medium body, mildly dry finish
4 O - really dig this APA. I'd get it again if the opportunity presented itself.

I absolutely do not like hops. However, I have heard so much about how awesome this beer is. The brewery is 28 miles away in a college town so I had to try it. It actually has a very smooth taste and has the perfect carbonation. I still don't like a hoppy beer, however, this beer has a very smooth taste and isn't all that bad!
