Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #41 (Jun 2010):
The Cascadian Dark Ale, also called India Black Ale, style is taking the country by storm! Very impressed with the head, nearly black all the way through. Pleasing spicy citric hop nose cradled by a solid malt base. Smoothness digs deep. Well-rounded malt character provides a good, balanced wall for the hops to play off of; an inkling of alcohol is clean. Hops grow after each sip; finish is semidry with a linger of hops and faint dark malt. Nailed it, guys!

A: Black with a creamy lightish brown head.
S: Lots of floral and citric hops in the nose, and maybe just a touch of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.
T: Tons of pine and floral hops, yet not overly bitter, some citrus, some coffee and roasted malt. Hop heavy.
M: Smooth and full bodied, a bit creamy.
O: A great example of the style, and one of my favorites from Deschutes.
Serving type: on-tap
