3.46/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a 22oz bomber bottle into a large football-shaped glass. Colored ruddy brown with a hazy, opaque texture. A gorgeous, fluffy white 2-finger head and some legit lacing. Pretty indeed!

S: Sweet caramel up-front with a distinctly Cascade hop finish. The nose is sweet and woodsy, with aromas of roses, mulch, malted barley, dry grass clippings, and wholesome cereal.

T: Burnt caramel on the front of the tongue with a dry pine needle middle and a black cherry jam swallow. Aftertaste is creme brulee mixed with pine cones. Flowers, grass, wood chips, slight condensed milk, and a bit of alcohol esters.

M: On the verge of being syrupy with enough chewiness to balance the feel out. A nice dryness at the end without a crazy bitter afterfeel.

O: A nice, if slightly conservative way to celebrate 30 years of brewing.

3.5/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: somewhat hazy; burnt orange in color; a 1 finger egg shell head that recede quickly; sheets of lacing;

S: complex; floral is most prominent; a little pine in the background; some alcohol;

T: very subtle flavors; floral and pine, but not much; alcohol is well hidden; some bitterness on the finish, but not much;

M: medium bodied; carbonation a touch on the prickly side;

O: a really nice APA; I would have liked the Cascade to be more prominent, but this bottle, although I just bought it, may be old (no date indication)

3.81/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into SN imperial pint glass.

A: Pours a clear bright golden with a surprising number of tiny flakes suspended in the liquid. The head is greasy and off white, very thick, and rose up four fingers before slowly collapsing into a dense thick film that left a complex network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Crisp grain bill overshadowed by fresh scents of cascade hops. Citrus rind, grapefruit, and a touch of lemon zest easily come through.
T: Follows the nose with a crackery pale malts mixed with citrus hops, slight pine, and a kiss of floral perfume. The finish is lightly bitter, slightly toasted, with a grapefruit pith aftertaste and faint sweet caramel.
M: Crisp mouthfeel, medium body, smooth, easy and quaffable. Carbonation is soft and wet, bitterness lingers and is refreshing.
O: A solid pale ale. Pretty much tastes as one would expect given the ingredients and description. An interesting choice for an anniversary beer.
