No bottling dates. 12 oz bottle. Reviewed 2/2/11.

Bright red-brown body, leaning more to the red side of the spectrum. Not much of a head; dirty white in color, and it fades fast.

Tons of cascade hops, citrusy, oily and piney. Robust caramel and malts. Slightly flowery. A hop showcase.

Hops kick in the door right away with citric tartness. Bitter pine leads into a robust malt profile that is caramel in flavor. Some breadiness. Leads into more citrus hops, tasting of tangerines. Dry and long lasting bitterness.

An amazing pale ale. Excellent.
