Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Well hazed medium orange color. A little over one finger of creamy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Bready malts and yeast. Citrusy hoppiness with plenty of orange and lesser amounts of mango and papaya. Also some sugariness. Not overpowering, but pleasant for an APA.

4.0 T: Moderate neutral malt sweetness with a touch of bready yeastiness, but clean overall. Mild, but superbly pleasant citrusy hoppiness. Perfect for an easy drinking APA.

4.0 M: Medium to slightly heavier body. Lower end of good carbonation, which works. There's some weight to this brew without it being either chewy or creamy. Quite nice.

4.5 D: This is so easy to drink. Mild, but sufficient hoppiness, super clean, and well balanced puts this one as a winner.

Not yet it Best Buy Date.
First of several WI beers as i just returned from a family gig there.
Label hints at loads of cascade and if this is what that smells like - yum and well done. Summer clear fresh flowery citrus slight grass and a hint of oil. Very nice.
One of the slower developing heads I've come across but it's thick and dense and covers a dark gold slighty cloudy body.
First notice a slightly light body with a bit of a aqueous quality. The bottle description is correct with a ample hop flavor but a low level of bitterness. The hop flavors pretty much match the aroma, just balanced a bit differently. A slight grainy quality to the malt.
A real nice drinking beer. Soft feel overall and very inviting.

This beer poured out as a clear lookig yellowish gold color. The head was white and fizzy, with a good amount of bubbles rising to the glass. The lacing was minimal with just some scattered suds around the glass. The smell of the beer is a bit more earthy and malty than I expected. The taste of the beer is also more grainy than I originally thought it would be. The mouthfeel was clear and crisp, light bodied and had a sharp carbonation to it. Overall this beer sounded like it was going to be a bit more hoppy than it actually was. The beer itself isn't bad just not exactly what I was hoping for.
