Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

From 11/02/12 notes. On tap in Madison, WI at some restaurant. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy orange brown color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, light pine hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, and bready malts. Lots of citrus and nice hops; quite good.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, fruity malts, bready malts, biscuit, light pine hops. Nice but not quite as good as the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No real bitterness and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty nice local pale ale. Nice hops and citrus in the nose, though it wasn't quite as strong in the taste. Easy to drink and would have it again, though I enjoyed some of their other stuff better that weekend.

poured into Founders Snifter.

Appearance: slightly opaque, yet brilliant and glowing straw yellow bodied beer. 2 fingers of white head that some decent staying power and nice lacing.

Smell: Big oranges and oranges zest. Hints of lemon zest and juicy grapefruit. Little bit of bready malts.

Taste: Mild bitterness, with big citrus flavors! Oranges are everywhere in this beer. I am digging it. Just like in the nose... the lemon zest and grapefruit notes are in the supporting cast to the oranges. Nicely balanced beer with a biscuity malt profile. Oranges go from start to finish with this beer. Mild bitterness that does stick around very long and does not linger. It makes you want to drink this beer fast!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. This is very drinkable.

Overall: Really Nice APA. Drinkable and flavorful. Big "N" Bold hoppy oranges in this beer. This is an awesome local that more people need to discover. Ale Asylum really did this beer right! i did not even know what was sitting in the beer cooler, I have passed this beer by way too many times...not any more! Seriously underated WI local.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle, no date code or markings, poured into pint glass
A- Hazy golden/orange in color with one finger head, thin layer stays around
S- Light aroma of citrus, hops, and a noticeable maltiness, nothing special
T- Starts right away with nice hop flavor, malt balance comes soon after with a little bit of pine, not bad at all
M- Nicely carbonated, piny oiliness helps the beers a lot
O- Overall a solid APA, nothing over-the-top, just a nice mix of citrus to pine and hops to malt balance

poured on tap at brewery into pint shaker glass.

A - A light, hazy orange with a 1 finger white head. Good retention and nice lacing.

S - Citrus and tropical fruit. Pineapple and pine with a decent malt balance of bread and caramel.

T - Follows the nose with citrus and tropical fruit. Good amount of pineapple and some pine. Malt backbone holds up well with bread and caramel. Finish is more pine bitter, but not too strong.

M - Medium bodied, good carbonation. Somewhat dry and bitter.

O - Great APA and one of my favorite offerings in WI.

Pours a clear straw, good initial head, great lacing.

Nice pine scent, fairy faint nose though.

Bready malt, subtle pine , grapefruit, and lemon blend, very nicely balanced. Flavorful but not palate-obliterating.

Mouthfeel crisp, well carbonated.

A very nicely done APA. Well balanced and flavorful.
