Comes in a little bit darker than average pale ale, this has the light amber colors going for it, 1/3" head. Looks like the 11 stage hopping just used the bittering hop (Cascade) as the aroma hop as well. Decent, but not dropping big time aromas.

Taste was nice, balanced good mix of malt and Cascade hops, reminds one of SNPA. I did notice they go quickly in terms of quality and age. Drink 'em fast. Overall, an enjoyable pale ale in the 2nd tier of quality, which is to say it is definitely better than average, but not in the upper echelon of world class beers either.

Nice hazy amber gold appearance with a nice lingering head.
Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, floral notes and resiny bitterness.
Tastes are pretty similar with an emphasis on the dankness.
Palate is medium with a good lingering finish.
Overall a really nice pale with a big bitterness.

Not a great scent, but a solid balance of (cascade?) hops with enough straightforward citrus to go around. Excellent aftertaste and mouthfeel. Would certainly buy again.

Found a couple bottles for a buck apiece on clearance at my local pharmacy. Smell is hops and citrus/pine. Taste is very hoppy and citrusy, not near as bitter as other IPAs. Very drinkable, not the most complex of IPAs but a nice example of a session IPA that goes down smooth.
