look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color; the cap retains nicely and leaves some dots behind

Smell: Hoppy aromatics, with tropical fruit and grapefruit buttressed by a touch of toffee

Taste: Hops dominate the front end, with tropical fruit, citrus and grapefruit all commanding attention; some toffee lingers underneath, but the hops continue to power through to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I was surprised to find that Cascade hops were the sole hops used in this beer, albeit they have been added in eleven separate additions; I was expecting something different, given the interesting tropical fruit tones; in any event, quite a good pale ale and a solid flagship beer for this brewery

Big citrusy hop nose, some light fruit and rich malt.
Brilliant amber under a moussey, 3" off-white head that slowly descends to a thick film but leaves thick lace.
On the palate the hops have more flavor - citrus and grapefruit - than bitterness and are well balanced by a rich malt backbone.
Creamy, medium body and medium carbonation.

One of my favorite beers, nice and fragrant with decent bite but not overly fruity so I, at lease, can session this beer. This beer is one of the main reasons Ale Asylum grew so fast.
