My Boss bought me the mix pack to see what i think of em. So here goes.
Pours a nice light copper color that is as clear as glass with a nice off white head that sticks around a bit.
The aroma is mildly hoppy but it is very true to the Cascade aroma profile so i would say this is not bad so far.
Fairly hoppy in the beginning this would be too much for my step-dad who only drinks bud so I would say it is a very good training wheel beer for the novice or non-craft beer drinker. For me though the overall flavor is not very interesting. Pretty much a little bit of hop bitterness and flavor, although very clean and true to American Style pale ales, and not much else.
The mouthfeel still has that 'fizzy' taste to it but otherwise it is nice and dry.
Drinkability is poor because i dislike the thin quality though the hops do come out a lot more than anything else they produce. I will admit that this beer would be very easy to drink quickly but what is the point of that unless you are at a college binge-fest.

3.06/5 rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3
A somewhat dated 12 oz bottle from the back fo the refrigerator, wih the review tempered by memory from fresher bottles.
Look: surprisingly good, with a clear, deep amber body covered by a rather creamy looking, bone-colored head.
Aroma: earthy hops are stronger than the malt base
Flavor: again earthy hops over a sweet and light roast malt base but tainted with some metallic tones (attributed largely to age) and hints of corn.
Feel: Medium body with a very good carbonation level.
O: given a fresh bottle, not bad; even roughly average and, therefore, better than expected.
