Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a really nice clear light gold color, two finger soapy white head, real nice lacing around the glass.
S - Very faint grapefruit and pine hop aroma, big time cracker and biscuit malt, some other random spices i cant pick out.
T - The malts are big here, and the spice from the hops is over the top, you get some of the fruit flavors that cascade can lend, but they're faint.
M - Soapy, spicy and bitter.
O - Bad display of cascade hops, thats for sure. An OK pale on a hot day at best.

This is a rather uneventful pale ale. Decent hop influence, but nothing overly boisterous. Pine seems to be most prevalent. Hop spices are a bit more than mildly spicy. Carbonation seems slightly high. Pretty easy to drink though. A nice drinker. Would be easy to drink more than a few.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
5.4% ABV,

A - Shimmering golden honey in color, fine particles float through this beer that pours with a formidable off white head. Rocky lace leaves a silhouette of mountains on the glass as it's consumed.

S - Not quite bursting with a Cascade aroma, this pale ale takes a subtle, not-so-dry hopped approach to the pale ale with its pale maltiness and trace finish of citrus rind and pine woodsy character - disappointing considering the potential Cascade hops can add to the aroma.

T - Lemon citrus rind and pine needle show a bit more life from the Cascade hops this beer contains but their subtlety certainly doesn't push past the pale and caramel malt to any level of acceptance for a hop head.

M - Starting smooth and drinkable, Cascade Pale Ale turns dry and faintly bitter, remaining just as drinkable as it lingers on the palate.

O - I can see how Cascade Pale Ale might have been hoppy "back in the day" but by today's standards this mellow, though easily drinkable pale ale doesn't come close to measuring up. Between the faint aroma and lack luster flavor, if it's hops you're looking for, Point's Cascade Pale Ale is one you can skip. Try their Beyond The Pale IPA instead.
