Picked up a six pack to check out before buying a case and I'm glad I only got the six. This is a good easy drinking session pale ale - oh its an IPA from the west coast? hmmmm... . I was dissapointed with the malt body since I was hoping for something quite chewey like their english style IPA just with US hops instead of English. Good hop aroma for a pale ale, but dissapointing for an IPA coming from the west coast. I did not experience the pronounced pine and citruis hop aromas that were promised - instead I got a subdued generic candyish aroma that I know cascade aroma to have with just a hint of grassyness that might be bordering on oxidized hop aroma.It has a little more hop flavor than their pale ale, but I thought their regular pale ale is a better drinker. Hopefully they will tweak this one a bit next year.
