I really should swing by RedRock to get one that I know is fresh. This one is from a state store here in SLC. Poured into my IPA goblet.
Appearance: A rather hazy burnished golden color. The head settles fairly quickly and leaves a small amount of lacing.
Smell: There is a sweet maltiness behind all of the hops. For the hops I sense herbs, pine, and citrus and tropical fruits. Really nice.
Taste: Hoppy bitterness all through the taste. The maltiness is on the front end of the taste. This is a really intense beer and the maltiness stands up to the hoppiness. The taste of the hops mirrors that of the smell.
Mouthfeel: This is a smooth beer. The finish is fairly long with intense hop flavors. The carbonation is soft allowing the flavors to linger even longer than they otherwise would.
Drinkability: This a is a big hoppy beer in a 500 ml bottle with a fairly high ABV (8.0), so I probably would not drink more than one of these in a sitting. That being said, it is really good and one that I would seek out.

This could have been a great beer... except that I don't like grapefruits. Damn the cascade hops!. It poured okay, but the head was minimal and what little there was faded in seconds. Color was a slightly hazy rich gold.. not bad at all. Aroma was slight, a little hoppy. Mouth feel not bad at all... but then came the hops. I love hops, just hate grapefruit off flavors and that pretty much ruined it for me. I think a lot of people will like this beer, especially if you are into cascade... just wasn't for me. Very hard to get past that to review the beer faithfully, so I pretty much called it even on this one. Don't want to slam it as they did'nt do anything wrong, just a difference in tastes..
