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

Drank this dozens of times and never bothered to review it. Thanks Wayne for this one!
Bottleneck printed "212001", whatever that means.

Into a pint glass it pours a brightly saturated orange, on closer inspection it's hazed with a veil of micro-sediment hanging in suspension. Ample head of foam, receding to a thin skim after a few sips, leaving behind plenty of residual lacing in the glass.

Softly sweet caramel and pale malts, citrusy orange peel. When fresh the hoppiness is really satisfying.

Light mellow feel, extremely drinkable with grassy green hop notes and sustained bitter orange peel in the aftertaste. Easygoing malt character that isn't overly sweet thankfully. The composition is seamless, and its just an effortless APA to drink. Definitely a gateway craft beer for those hop-averse but craft-curious beer drinkers out there.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

a hazy amber with half inch of head (quickly diminished)
scents of sweet grassy hops, caramel, slight citrus grapefruit.. heavy on the malt profile.
earthy hops up front followed by a sweet ruby red grapefruit flavor. a faint taste of the malt behind all the citrus/earthy hops.
medium body with almost no carbonation.
if this were more carbonated it would change the beer entirely. it is a unique hope flavor, definitely, but unfortunately that's all this beer has going for it.

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.
